Joined this site after reading good feedback from various people. I've been trying to research what the problem is with my pump.
A few days ago, I noticed that the pump isn't running. Went back to check it out and noticed that every few minutes, the pump will try turn on but will not keep running. It would just turn off after a second or two. I'm going to check the impeller tomorrow morning when it's cooler but the symptoms I've read didn't seem to indicate that would be the problem. Tried searching for that symptom (on for a second then off right away) and other common pump problems but did not yield any good leads. Right now my best bets are either the impeller is clogged/damaged or the capacitor needs replacing. If anyone can shed more light on the problem it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance
I have a Hayward Tristar with two speed settings. I think thats called Variable Speed? I never use the low speed though.
