Man there is a forum out there for everything. I'm expecting this one is as helpful as the others I visit now and again.
Anyway, I live in north Florida and the 4" of rain we got over the course of an hour left my pool filthy and my pump dead. I've already removed it from the system, but when I first attempted to restart it, the breaker had tripped, so I flipped it back. There was a brief spark at the end of the pump and the breaker tripped immediately.
I am rather handy and am keen to learn and save some money, so I'm hoping you guys can walk me through the diagnostics and repair on this. The pump is a Hayward super pump with an AO Smith motor. My best guess is that the pump is 6 - 10 years old.
