Have an older spa booster pump (1.5 horsepower replacement series hayward) that just started intermittently shutting off right after startup. Some of the time, it would trip the breaker, sometimes not. It will run, then stop, then automatically restart. The run times are in the few seconds, no more. No external water leaks that I know of.
Advice of what is possibly wrong?
I do have a 1 horsepower rs1000 hayward i just have laying around after installing an intelliflo replacement pump, with a leaky seal. Would it make sense to replace the seal and use that instead of the 1.5 booster I have now? Would flow/bubbles be dramatically less?
