We have a 3 year old Jandy Stealth pump (2hp). Last year our skimmers clogged with leaves and the pump ran dry. Now it squeals in cold weather, but still runs. It sounds like the bearings are going bad.
We're renovating the pool and the pb recommended a Hayward Tristar 2hp. Looking at the Hayward website there are so many different models (besides Tristar) that it is hard to understand the differences...
A couple questions. How does the tristar compare to the Jandy Stealth? Since the pump isn't very old, would it be better to just replace the motor? Any other pumps we should consider instead?
Our pools is about 17,500 gallons, with a spa. The pump and equipment sit well above the highest part of the pool due to the slope of our yard.
