    pump starting to whine

    Hi, we have an outdoor spa, water quality is good, but pump has just started to whine, not high pitch, just a low whine, we have checked the pump and no air escaped as we loosened the joints, turned it all back on and it was slightly more noisy, had to have a new pump 2 years ago after a burnout from air in the system, keep water levels high ever since, but have noticed on most of the pipes there is an oblong box which looks like it has a small plunger attached and held in place by a short removable stop, we haven't touched these, unable to send phot as it is the middle of the night here and haven't been able to sleep worrying about the spa

    Usually whining from a pump is a motor bearing failing. If caught in time, they can be replaced. No idea what the plunger things are you mention without a picture.
