Last fall the motor on my pool pump was getting really hot and then started to squeal loudly, so we shut down the pool and closed for the winter. I had set the pump & motor by the garage door as I planned to take it to the elec. motor shop to have new bearings installed. Never got around to it. Moved it out of the way all winter long. Today I decided to take the motor to the shop. Where is it? No not there, For the past couple years, If you leave it outside at night, It gets gone... Several times if we leave the cars unlocked next day the ashtrays are empty of change and everything is gone through... (The security light only seems to make it easier for them to see what they are doing)
So, today I had to buy a whole new outfit. I did some research and it seems that the pump I had was designed for an above ground pool (mine is inground) and did not flow enough water so I did some more research and found a savings on Amazon.
At the pool place $500+ tax and with tax and shipping $375 on Amazon, be here Thursday. Same model and brand... (I need that US Census job to pay for my toys)
