My pump is very noisy and the jet power is reduced.

It sounds like the intake area is where the noise is coming from

    my pond pump works well for about 1/2 hour, after that the flow of water in the waterfall reduces to about 1/2 the normal flow. Pump sounds a bit louder than ordinary. I've checked the impeller & water level. What can it be?

Sounds like you got a stick or rock in it. If not, the pump impellers and shift are bad and need replacing.

I have a STA RITE 1 hp above ground pump that is used for my lawn irrigation system. It is about 3 years old. It seems to be making more "noise" as it runs than it has before... Q. Is there a way to...


Hi Tom, The reason your pump is getting noisy is because the motor bearings are worn out. This can also be caused if the shaft seal between the motor and the wet end is leaking. The bearings can't be lubricated because they are sealed. The best solution is to have the bearings replaced as well as a complete seal kit for the wet end.

High pitched sound coming from hi-flo 48 frame pump. why?


Sounds like the bearings are going out. There should be a series of bolts or screws connecting the motor and seal plate to the rest of the pump. If you separate these you can pull the motor back and get a better look a the impeller. Check and make sure there is no debris clogging the impeller or rubbing inside the diffuser/impeller area. This can also cause noise in the pump. You can try running it for a few seconds while it's open, and if it's still real noisy then it's the bearings. You can either replace the motor, or have it rebuilt. most local pool supply shops can check it and rebuild it for you. if they don't do that kind of work chances are they can refer you to a plce that does.

well there are a couple of things that can cause this to happen. first check your oil and coolent. odd sounding i know but this can cause it. second check and make sure your cluchs are working correctly. next if all that fails then i would check the air intake for blockages and then service the carb.

Pump has started making a loud "slurping" sound when it shuts off, similar to sucking on a straw at the bottom of a glass. Is there a way to adjust this noisy pump?


I'd double check your check valve, located in the discharge pipe, is still working. If the flapper inside has failed the water in that pipe runs back down into the pit and you'll hear 'bubbling' and the air is forced out by the water coming back down...another symptom may be your pump running more often than it used to. If the check valve is of, it sounds like the pump is drawing down closer to the bottom of the pit than before and that is causing you noise...can you adjust the length of the cord that is free to the float? If so, shorten it a little at a time until the noise goes away.

I just bought this pump and just bought a new wetend. Everything was the same as I had before. I hooked the wetend to the pump just like before and installed it into the spa. When I turned on power,...


The wear ring on the impeller can cause all these problems. It seems natural to put this on the impeller with the wide side tward the impeller but it goes on with the wide side out so when the pump starts the ring slides forward and seals the pessure side of the impeller from the suction side. With this in wrong your water will just circulate inside the pump rather than going back to the spa. I hope this helps.

Just looked at 2000 coast spa hot tub with 1 6.5hp motor,is this enough power to support the 30 jets as opposed to another hot tub that has 2 7hp motors with 40 jets


a 6.5hp motor produces quite a bit of force. It should be able to support 30 jets just fine. Most spas range from 2hp to 7hp. Depending on your preferences, the 6.5 should be plenty but if you really want a powerful therapy jet, two 7hp pumps should be more than sufficient. They will also kick your electric meter up a few notches...
Two pumps give you more options, you don't have to have half of the jets turned off so one area can have more power, the dual pumps give you the option to run nearly all of the jets at the same time if you have more than just a couple people in the spa a once.
