Hey y'all ....
Had a good last year with new filter and doing okay til today ..motor died,
the hub and son are off to camp this week ... so, as freaked out as I was to do it, I tore it down and long story short, the shaft won't spin.
So called intex, a replacement motor (part is 11322EG) is $141.....ugghh... I didn't even wait to hear what shipping and tax would be ....
a whole new set up is $130 @ amazon.. free shipping,
Amazon.com: Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 110-120 Volt with GFCI, 2800 Gallon: Patio, Lawn Garden
I am wondering if going to a slightly bigger model is going to cause me probs bc I am using the over the wall skimmer that came w/ pool. I know a bigger, better skimmer can be cut-in, but I am too chicken to do it.
I wonder if the skimmer caused any cavitation issues? We have had lots of storms recently, the water level got low a couple of weeks ago and it was sucking in air ....
I use the pole vac in the skimmer set up that came with it, but thinking about a Wanda.
So I would be going from max flow rate of 2650 to 2800 (if I read that correctly).
besides lots of chlorine

Oh, and if it matters, I am not using the swg this year, one
of those few who didn't care for the salt.
