The tank body on my pool pump is leaking. It's only one area that I've noticed, but it leaks quite a bit. I'm going to do some research and see if there is anything to try to fix that, but if not, I'm wondering if I should fix it or just get a new eco one that will potentially save me money. I also know my leak will be fixed this way because it'll be a whole new pump.
From the information I've gathered a have a:
A100Ell - 1 Hp Motor 115 230V
That's all the information I have. The part in question that is leaking is the C176-47P1 tank body. I have found it on Amazon for about $85 with all gaskets, since it'll be taken apart. I have no idea how old this pump is because I am the second owner to the house. I have been here a little over 3 years, so I know it's at least 3.
I'm just wondering if it's worth fixing, assuming it'll only cost me about $85, or to just get a newer energy efficient pool pump. The one I had in mind was the Hayward SP2300VSP. It'll run me about $650, but hopefully would save me a little money every month, and more importantly, in the long run. I really didn't want to spend $650, but if it will save me money I won't mind doing it. As I said before, I know this will fix my leak.
I don't know how to figure how how much each would cost me to run, but I run my current pump now about 4 hours each day. In the Summer I go up to about 8. Any advice would be appreciated!
