I have an 8 year old Jandy Stealth 1.5 hp pump. I went home for lunch, and while there, checked on the pool. The pump was running but no water was moving. I look in the basket, and it's empty. I can feel heat. I turn it off. THe water in the basket was at least 150. The PVC running to and from the pump was starting to discolor. I cooled it off and tried to get things going again. It would run, but wouldn't sustain the movement of water. I imagine I have an air leak somewhere. I'm assuming that this pump is toast. Should I replace it with what I have or are there advantages to getting a variable speed pump? Would this one be ok? http://www.zodiacpoolsystems.com/Pro...VS-FloPro.aspx
I will likely order something today so that I can be up and running again before the 4th.
