Last fall my 14 month old Hayward Sp2600 pump started making noises and leaking water .... it was time to button up the pool for the winter so I just drained the pump, ran some anti-freeze through it and forgot about it until this week.
I decided to go out this morning and take the pump apart to see what it might need and to my surprise it isnt the impeller that is bad .... the pump motor itself is locked up.
$700 pump lasted less than 2 seasons and a 1 year warranty.
ggrrrrr .... any suggestions on a new pump? Is it worth even trying to spray the shaft with penetrating oil and see if I can get it working again?
I have a Hayward Pro-Logic system that I wouldnt mind having a little more pump control than what the SP2600 offered anyway ......
