We had a storm on Saturday and my motor gave out on me. It's a Hayward Super II and I tried replacing the capacitor. I had it tested and it was fried, but no change. It would turn on, sound way louder than it ever has and then shut itself off after about 15 seconds. Same result either way.
I have a home warranty and my pool is covered. I'm sure they'll find a way to screw me somehow by giving me a crummy replacement or something to that affect, and I don't trust these pool folks at all.
So....if the pump is shot and they're going to replace it (as opposed to fixing the existing motor), I'll likely have the option to upgrade by paying the difference. I would like a two-speed motor. That said, I'm leery of these folks trying to sell me something I don't need or doesn't mesh well with my existing system. If I stick with what I have, I can probably get out for the cost of a $60 service call.
What would you do?
20K in-ground pool with pop-up cleaners/returns, spa on same pump
Hayward Super II pump (2 hp, 1.25 SF, 230V, 1.55KW, model K48N2N104)
No auto-vac pool cleaner, but may someday get one (I brush and vacuum old school for now)
60 series Hayward DE filter
AquaLogic control unit
I have a water feature but it runs on a separate pump.
Any advice would be appreciated. Prepping as the pool company is coming tomorrow. Happy to provide more info as needed.
