Our pump went out and we had to replace it. My husband took off the old one and hooked the new one into the plumbing. He did it as soon as we got it, and said it was amazingly easy, but then stated I needed to read the manual because there was something about grounding in there and he didn't know what to do. I read it but didn't understand it either, then was up way late last night reading all about grounding and bonding. I am pretty sure we did not have either of these with the old pump. Some things I read said you don't have to do bonding and grounding with an above ground pool, but then it seemed that they were talking about temporary pools. Ours is permanent, with no deck, just a plastic ladder. The frame is metal, though. Aluminum I think? I also read that the pump should be 5 feet from the water. Ours has always been within 2 feet. The GFI outlet is also about 2 feet from the water. Y'all are the experts, though, and I need your help.
So...have a new Hayward SP15932S Power-Flo Matrix 1-1/2-Horsepower 2-Speed Above-Ground Pool Pump. What do I need to do besides hooking the plumbing back in and securing it to the pad?
