    Pump making a grinding noise

    Hi all

    Pump started making a grinding noise about two weeks after we fired it up for the first time. It is still moving water, but curious if anyone has ever come across this before.

    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi Tom. Probably the motor bearings going out. Unless you can find someone who does bearing replacement, it's new motor time.

    We think it could be hair. Pump isn't making the sound anymore, and we cleaned it out a bit.
