Hi. I'm Gen. Newbie here. Will post better introduction soon. I really could use some input from those of you who truly know your stuff. I'm a novice above-ground pool owner. We bought an Intex Ultra Frame 14 x 48" above ground pool last year. It came with the standard Krystal Clear Model 637R Filter Pump. It worked great for last season (approximately three months). This year, we got everything ready to go and .... pump doesn't work. Was working last year just fine last time we used pool...stored the pump...this year doesn't work. I realize these pumps are approximately $89.00 to replace, but if there is anything I can do until I can get a new one (can't until I get a couple more paychecks), then I would appreciate your advice. We tried the recommended troubleshooting listed in the manual, however, still not working. My husband then removed the back of the plug in (where the test and reset buttons are, and two of the screws that hold the wires are coated in rust. There was water in this plug in (I thought it was a closed casing -- designed for outdoor use??)... Why would they make a plug on the end of a pool that can take in water and/or moisture etc. from the elements? I suppose this is the reason our pump is not working. Is there anything we can do to fix this without getting a new pump or until we can get a new pump? Any other suggestions. Again, I realize that compared to the other members here, my question may sound ridiculous -- given the systems you all seem to have on your pools, but any suggestions would be appreciated. -Gen.
