    Pool filter motor

    In the recent storms, my pool motor died. This happened earlier in the summer when we had some heavy storms. I've checked all my breakers and none of them have tripped. Is it possible that the storms caused an electrical spike to cause my motor to fail? Two times now.

    I don't even know if I'm asking the right question.

    Thanks.

    Runs, but does not generate enough power to run my navigator. Same thing happened to my previous motor.

    Make sure your pool has plenty of water, clean out all your skimmer and pump baskets, bypass your filter if you can, and clean out your impeller.

    If you need to replace it, look on Amazon for the motor and do it yourself. I've done it a couple of times, and it's not hard. Pool guys will $#@! you pretty good for both the part and labor.

    Great advice from TK & cabo.

    What is your pressure reading? How does that reading compare to normal. If the pressure is low, remove the pump basket, stick your hand into the pump opening, clean out any debris in there. This happened on mine, cleaned out the leaves that had gotten in there, and pressure returned to normal.

    Yeah. If it isn't your impeller or a clog, you can take out the motor with or without the pump and take it to Hamilton Electric on Airport.

    Could be something stuck in your pool sweep as well, does yours suck water or squirt ?

    That is what I'm think too with both times being after heavy storms. Storms wash extra junk in pools that can jam up the sweeper or clog the line.
