    Noisy, leaky pump

    Last year toward the end of the swimming season, we replaced our pump motor. We just opened the pool last week, and the motor seems to be noisier than it was last year and I noticed a small drip of water from the bottom. I would not think the bearings are bad already but perhaps water is leaking inside? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Does anyone have any suggestions about this pump noise & leak? What should we check? Thanks!

    Did you replace the gasket between the motor and pump? If not, the gasket could be cracked and leaking
