I purchased a home with a pool a few months ago. Things had been going well and everything system wise was working. A few weeks ago my pump motor started getting loud and I noticed some dripping where it connects to the housing. I knew it was probably on its way out then and started looking into replacements. Well yesterday it shut off completely and is now seized.
What I don't know are the specs on the motor. All of the labels are worn off. The motor is a marathon electric unit while the rest of the pump is hayward so it must have been replaced at some point. I cannot read the part numbers on the hayward section either as they too are worn off.
I had thought about rebuilding it but not knowing specs might make that hard to buy parts plus it's time I don't really have and I have never done it. I then thought about just replacing it again as that may be more cost effective due to its condition but again I am not sure what to get as I can't read the model number.
Attached is a picture of the setup. I know the bonding lug is broken off....that is another consideration for just replacing the motor.
