    Pentair Warrior SE troubleshooting

    Well, just to follow up on this, I tried to call Marina a couple of times, but I just got their voicemail, so I decided to try Pentair directly. Pentair set up a warranty claim for me and assigned the work order to a local pool place, who canceled the work order the next day stating that they...

    Pentair Warrior SE troubleshooting

    I got a Pentair Warrior from Marina last July and unfortunately today I discovered that it no longer appears to be working. When I try to start it everything lights up and looks normal on the controller, but I get no lights on the robot itself, nor does it start to move. I tried...

    Luck with Solar Cover Warranty Claim?

    I went through this with a cheap cover I purchased at Home Depot that started failing after only about 8 or 9 months. I think I paid like $60 for the cover and when I called the company for a warranty replacement they asked for a few pictures of the damage and a copy of the receipt and they...

    Pump/Motor help

    Well, Lowes missed their Tuesday delivery date, but the pump finally arrived today and I got it installed. One advantage of using the same pump is that I didn’t have to change the plumbing at all. I cut the output pipe and then unscrewed it from the top of the pump and then repaired it with a...

    Pump/Motor help

    Well, I ordered the Flotec from Lowes. It seemed to get better reviews and I got 5% off with my Lowes card, so I guess that makes it worth waiting until Tuesday. Thanks again for all your help with this:)

    Pump/Motor help

    I think I’m just going to wind up replacing the whole thing. It means a little plumbing work, since there were no unions or anything used, but at least then I don’t need to worry about trying to figure out the correct seal kit or motor mount and I know that everything is new and functional...

    Pump/Motor help

    OK, got the band and the volute off. (Found an ant colony living under the band, so that was interesting). It’s a bit of a rusty mess in there. I can’t seem to rotate the impeller a full 360 degrees. It seems to be free for about 270 degrees, but then it binds up.

    Pump/Motor help

    What exactly do I need to look for on the label? It’s pretty difficult to read and there is a lot of writing. I did see that it’s a 2HP motor. Is there more that I would need to try to find on the label?

    Pump/Motor help

    Is that just a matter of loosening the screw that’s attaching the clamp and removing it and pulling the pump apart? I’m 100% positive that it’s 240V. The other end of the wires are connected to both legs of a 240V circuit breaker. I’m not sure who wired it originally, but for some reason...

    Pump/Motor help

    Thanks, I was able to get a capacitor from amazon that matched the one that was in there, but unfortunately replacing the capacitor didn’t make a difference. I used the capacitance setting on my multimeter to test them and both the old and new ones did appear to be in range.

    Pump/Motor help

    OK, So I did that. It took quite a lot of effort to get the shaft to spin, but after a bit I was able to get it to turn reasonably easily by hand (with the wrench). It certainly doesn’t feel like it spins freely, but it doesn’t take a crazy amount of effort to turn it with the wrench now. It...
