My pump quit working on the weekend and I am looking for a new one. I took it apart to make sure there was nothing blocking it and it is clear. The impeller is missing a few pieces but it has been like that for awhile. If I shut the pump off and let it cool it will run for a couple minutes before clicking away then finally quitting again. My question is pump size. I read the other post on pump size but we have different pools so I started my own thread. BTW, is there any way this could be related to my switch to SWG a couple months ago?
I can not read the old sticker to find out the pump size. I do know the feed and output lines are 1 1/2". There is only two jets in the shallow end of my pool. The pump is approx. 70' from the skimmer basket and the jets are about 40' from the pump. I read the the hayward calculations on their website and I really think I need some help here.
My old pump was noisy as heck and I really like the idea of a whisper flow. I won't say money is no object but I do not want to buy cheap junk. If I have to spend a little more to get a better brand I have no problem doing that.
