Over the winter I had a GFI added to my pool electrical system. (The pool was built in 1967 and had none.) Now that I have a GFI, I'm finding it trips whenever there is a heavy rain. Not good.
The only place electricity comes near the pool is the pump. I don't have lights, SWG, or heater. As the pump seems to be about 15 years old, I suspect it's starting to fail. There's also a small leak at the pump exit connection. Finally, given my small filter, the 3/4 hp pump is a bit oversized and probably inefficient due to its age.
Anyone care to recommend a 1/2 hp pump?
Also, the pump is now on a standard 110 V AC, 15 A plug. Should I have the pump hard-wired to the box with the timer?
Thanks in advance for your help. Everyone on this board is great.
