    Slow motor startup

    I was mistaken. The shaft turned with the help of a wrench or plier but not freely by hand. I'm ready to replace the bearings and want to be sure I am buying the correct replacement parts. I've found the manual for my pump here and the motor here. The motor and pump plates are attached. I've...

    Slow motor startup

    Thank you for for your quick responses and guidance. This gives me a course of actions; checking the shaft for free spin, electrical contacts for rust, and the capacitor using AVO meter. Both my capacitors are 50 uF. Will report back tomorrow.

    What's the best filter cartridge for Pentair Clean and Clear Plus?

    I have the Pentair Clean and Clear Plus filter system with four filter cartridges. I've attached picture of the original Pentair filter cartridge (four part numbers on it, don't know which one to use) which was replaced by a set of Unicel C7470 cartridges. These lasted about 2 years. It's time...
