Thanks.Sometimes a new pump with different design and maybe different impeller improves things and is a reason to put in a new pump instead of trying to repair just the motor.
Glad it all worked out.
Put the multimeter down and slowly walk away from electrical stuff and enjoy the weekend.If I were to set a multi meter to 200m DC (yes DC) and received a reading of 178 by touching the black to the bond on the skimmer and the red in the skimmer water, does that mean anything other than I’m crazy and need to leave electrical stuff alone?
Where are you standing with your hand in the skimmer enjoying the tingle?And just a reminder there is ZERO tingling (actually more of a burn) in front of the skimmer. Just IN it.
Wow on high this is much quieter than the old one. On low it is really quiet.
Pump installed. Fresh cut. No tingle. Forgot last year it was tripping the breaker.
Had the store bench test it and they said pump was fine.
Got it back and installed and never tripped breaker again.
Leads me to think it was corrosion due to the bad seals.
