Just recently purchased a new house with a pool. Trying to get my pump up for the season. It is a Hayward Power-Flo Matrix series pump. It worked at the end of last summer. Near the end of summer, after shutting off to recharge my DE filter, it wouldn't turn back on and was only making a buzzing sound. None of the mechanics seem like they're running. It is also tripping the breaker after it's on for a minute or two. I just decided to shut the pool down at this point, and deal with it in the summer.
Summers's here! Tried starting it up again today and it's still doing the same thing. Time to get a new pump? Or does anyone have any trouble-shooting tips I could try first? Have no idea how old the pump is as it came with the house.
