New to the board.... new to pools. Last summer was very hot here, and I saw the 18' Intex at Toys R Us for 2 bills, so I got it. This year, I decided to upgrade the pump. I got an AquaQuik 3/4 HP pump and sand filter. Had it about two weeks.
Plugged it in tonight.... nothing. Dead. I checked the power- that is good. If I get REAL close to the pump, I can hear a slight whine (or maybe just an electrical hum.... VERY quiet!), but that's it. When I plug it in, I do not see the motor torque or anything. When I unplugged two days ago, all seemed well... All the hoses are fine, valves open... filters are clean. Not sure what to do at this point- its a brand new pump, and I have been very good to it.
The pump did get pretty wet the other day, but that shouldn't cause any problems, should it? It's been raining dang near every day, and that hasn't caused a problem....
Thanks for your help! Happy 4th!
