Finally able to get the covers off the pool, and water is much better than in past (thanks to pool school!). Unfortunately, I think the motor is dead (I checked the breaker, it was on). Motor was replaced once before; how do I know whether to have just the motor replaced or the pump and motor? Any guesstimates on difference between just motor replacement verses motor and pump?
I'm also guessing that this is not a DIY for someone with no mechanical experience (since my hubby's strokes, he doesn't tackle such projects anymore) and I have yet to find trustworthy service with such projects - I'm hoping to be able to make an informed decision and not be taken advantage of.
I appreciate any insight.
When I research the model number (S48B74A03), it comes up as an AO Smith, but it has a sta rite label on it
p.s. any advice on what to do with water until we're up and running? I'm thinking this could take up to a week or so.
