    Hayward prologic valves

    Im fairly new to this automation system. I just updated my aqualogic to a prologic with a PS8 display. Most likely in a few years ill update it again to a better/smarter automation system. But for now the prologic is leaps and bounds ahead of my old aqualogic. My question is about valve...

    Can someone please help me diagnose this?

    All the sudden my main pool pump stopped working. It's making a clicking noise every few seconds. Does this indicate some sort of common pump failure? Something fixable maybe?
