I have a 1HP hayward power-flo matrix pump and sand filter for my AGP and it has been acting funny lately.
When I go to start it the pump turns on and I see the water in the strainer start to circulate a bit. The pump doesn't seem like it is up to its full speed and after about 30 secs of it working like this it is tripping the breaker. My DH forgot to plug the pump in last evening so it isn't too hot from running. It is priming and it seems like it is working hard. It is only 1 year old and it just started acting up the past few days. I have went from a 24/7 running schedule(removing iron from water) to a schedule where it runs intermittently in the evenings and early am. Any ideas?
