    Leaking pump

    New dual speed is great. So very quiet on both high and low. Whether it’s just appearance or better filtering, on low it appears much cleaner. No more small pile of stuff in the middle of the pool. Eye is aimed the same.

    I hear you! I like simple. At 10.9 cents/kwh, seems a dual speed is a good choice.

    Why is the timer difference if I just run it on low speed twice a day?

    Two speed pump with sand filter.

    My current pump took a dump. Here she is. My pool store who who I actually like, says the two speed isn’t supposed to be used with a sand filter. Is that true? here is the 1.5 two speed I’m interested in. $10 less than my current pump at local price. They want to look at it before I buy from...

    Leaking pump

    Seals replaced. Breaker keeps tripping. Reads 113v so it must be the motor.

    Leaking pump

    Very hard to see but if you look inside near the motor and windings, it looks like it’s corroded in there also. Not happy since this is only three years old.

    Leaking pump

    I just watched this video and took it apart to this level. Is it possible that these are not, not, the two seals that are leaking? To me it looks like on the motor. Does that even make sense? https://youtu.be/XEpEO7sJ4Cs

    Figured why my water is dropping / Where should I get a new pump?

    Not to take over the thread but that's a good point re two speed. Mine is only a year old and runs 6-8 hours a day and my electric is killing me. Thinking I should replace anyway.

    New gauge questions

    Just noticed the other day. I have not had the pump running for the last three weeks. Sorry about the confusion. Yes, when the pump is off or I remove the gauge it is it 15. When I turn the pump on it goes over 30. Gorgeous day out, so I wanted to test and then remove the plumbing.

    New gauge questions

    Six month old gauge now reading 15 when off. Turn pump off and it shoots over 30. I took plumbing off and there is flow and backflow as appropriate so I'm thinking it has to be the gauge. Anyone know of one that lasts longer than six months? heres the one I have TFTestkits.net

    Is it normal to see visibly see chlorine coming out after putting it in the skimmer?

    Exactly what my PB Bioguard dealer had us do last year, our first year. Smart Silk Sticks in the skimmer all the time, even with pump only running 10 hours a day. Glad i found you guys.
