    Pump not working

    So we’ve had a ton of rain lately. I don’t know if that matters or not. Our pump is 17 years old. Turned it on today, ran about an hour, it threw the breaker. Now won’t come on. Any ideas what’s wrong?? Trying to figure if I need pool help (new pump) or electrical.

    We’ve had a 22,000 gallon in ground pool since 2002. Same pump, replaced liner 1x, new valve on sand filter last year. Added salt chlorinator 2017. Salt chlorinator is no longer working as of 2 weeks ago when we opened the pool. So without seeing the need to spend $500 plus on a new salt...
