Is Your Pool Pump Motor Not Working 100%?
Pool pump motors fail to operate effectively for a number of reasons; the most common being:
- Lack of water flow that prevents the pump from priming and may “cook” the bearings and they seize. Usually due to poorly sealed pump basket lids and broken or cracked pool cleaner hoses. Possibly too low a water level in the pool itself.
- Electrical failure, fusion due water entry or condensation in the pump motor.
- Overload of the pump by lack of flow due to debris in the skimmer, pump baskets, and impellor or blockages in the pool cleaner and or piping.
- Overload where the capacitor will “buzz” as it cannot start the pool pump motor.
