Well, I am at my wits end. I just threw my tools in the garage and said "F-it, fill in the **** pool".
Three weeks ago our 1hp hayward superpump just up and quit. No humming when switched on. Flip the switch...Nothing.
I figure it is no big deal, winter is almost here, its soon to closing time.
Then the midwest gets super hot fall weather over the past 3 weeks, so now my pool is super grungy green and filled with leaves.
-maybe it is the capacitor. I'll order a new one. Pool is blue, there is no need to pay for additional shipping.
-Get new capacitor. Nope. Maybe its time for a new motor? Pool is turning green. Order new motor, pay for additional quick shipping.
End of Week two.
-Install new motor with new rubber and ceramic seals. Turn the Switch...Nothing. Grab multimeter. 120 black, 120 red. 240ish total. Okay....Maybe I was sent a broken motor. Pool is murky, emerald green, there is a scummy film on top. The wife is making suggestions. Quickly pack up motor, order new motor.

Seriously folks, any idea what is going on? There is juice to the motor, shouldn't I hear something?
