    Pump Noise - is this normal?

    Could I please have your opinion on my pump noise? I purchased the house / pool a couple of years ago. I have always felt the pump to be noisy but it has been this way since I purchased it. Recently I saw videos about bearing replacements and got to thinking that maybe my pump needs some TLC. The pump is Hayward Super Pump 1 1/2 HP model C48L2N134B1. Does it sound normal? Anything I should be doing to quieten it down?

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    That is on the noisy end of the normal range. Often putting a rubber mat under the pump will quiet it down some.

    Thanks. I have added some rubber matting that has reduced some of the lower frequency. Perhaps I will look into a two speed replacement motor at the end of the season. Hopefully I will see both energy savings and reduced noise.
