Last fall my Pentair 1 hp pump froze up. I called a local pool man and $190 later I had it rebuilt. It seem to run fine. Then this morning it froze up again. I have a call in to the pool man who repaired it in the fall and he will be over in about an hour. I think I will need to replace it with a new pump. I have looked on Amazon and see I can get a replacement for about $330. It is a PentairAir also and I think it will match up with my existing fittings. It now is all solid PVC joints and I am thinking about replacing it with couplers? Any advice? Also, my pool vac operates much too slow and I am thinking about going up to a 1 1/2 hp to create better suction and therefore speeding up the Hayward Cleaner. Thoughts?
