We had a lightning strike that fried our pump so I had to replace it. I purchased an identical Hayward evo star and had it professionally installed. The new pump sounds different than the old one. It's higher pitched and has a slight ticking sound.

any ideas? It's pumping fine; maybe it's a nonissue?

Is it the same speed?

The back mounted fan can get loud at high speed.

Can you post a video with sound?

The EcoStar is TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled). The fan can be a bit annoying at full rpm.

Bearings can make weird noises.

Even the seal can squeek and squeal.
