A couple of weeks ago I went out to turn on my pool pump to start cleaning the pool up.(I left pump off all winter) When I turned it on, all I got was a low humming noise. I have taken the pump apart, cleaned all debris I could from impeller and tried to manually "turn" impeller with that large screw in the end of pump and it will not budge.
I have read a few different things saying it's dead if I can't turn impeller. I am a complete newbie when dealing with pumps/motors but I am not afraid of DIY projects. The pump is at least 7 years old(came with the pool/house when we bought it) It is a Speck E91-II. Is it worth trying to repair myself or do I need to invest in a new one? If I need a new one, what would be a suitable replacement? (It has a "hi" and "low" speed, not sure if I actually need that though)
I live in Montgomery, AL and the pool is 24' round and 4' deep. I have been using a SWG last couple of years.
Thanks for reading and all information given!
