I've been in my house for around 20 years now. The pool was new with the house. Since being here, I've had to replace the pump 5 times now.
I've had Hayward 1HP max flo and Hayward 1HP super pumps during this time.
How long should a Hayward Super Pump last? I know there are varying circumstances but an estimate would be helpful.
I live in Alabama, so it doesn't get real cold for long periods of time here. When I close the pool for the winter, I remove all of the pump plugs, I plug the pool inlet jets, strainer hole, etc. Then drain the sand filter and lines. Do I need to try a different pump that may be better and last longer?
The pump location is about 5 feet below the water level and around 20 feet to the first inlet jet and return.
THanks for any advice or suggestions.
