    Stripped drain plug on pool pump housing

    So yeah, I did this. I guess it's actually on the pool pump basket itself, not really the housing. Anyone successfully fix this? Because another PP housing is like $250 and I've already bought it once before.

    Bonding to Plumbing

    Resistance = impedance for AC right? Can pool water be bonded within the plumbing only? Luckily this is one of the few problems I've never experienced with my 40(?) year old pool.

    Loud pump

    I have a rather loud pump, I think I'm waiting for the neighbors to break in and cut the lines, lol. I wouldn't blame them. This is a persistent problem, do I need a new pump? I can't stand the noise and only run it at night.
