Pool filter making a loud noise

When my filter came on in the morning after a cold night in Tampa it was making a loud noise like screeching sound. It still is working but the noise is terrible.

The sound you are hearing is most likely rust forming on the inside of the motor. It tends to happen when a pump seal starts to fail. Water travels up the spining shaft from behind the impeller into the motor. The high pitch is a direct result.
Solution. Replace the pump seal, and find a motor repair shop/ Pool pump repair shop to take a look at the motor. Have them check the brushes and bearings. Once clean of rust the motor should be quiet once again.

What caused a loud, low frequency noise upon ignition.


Water in the heating chamber will cause your heater to make these sounds. If your water is cold, it will create condensation inside of the heating chamber. Another way water would get into the heating chamber is if your heat exchangers are leaking. Id check to make sure that heating chamber is not full of water, if theres any real accumulation of water, 2" or more, inside that chamber, the exchanger needs replacing. Otherwise, it sounds like condensation.

I would suspect that it is not the valve making the noise. I would bet it is the thermal expansion of the metal that you are hearing. Other than that, I have seen cases where there is a flow control valve, and depending on its operation, when it opens or closes on spring power it will over shoot and make a loud clicking noise as the clutch overshoots. This will usually only be about 2-4 clicks though, and around pool equipment I doubt you would hear much of it. I would bet more on the thermal expansion. Kind of like the clicking noise you will hear after you have parked your car and the engine is cooling down.

Your bypass valve is bad. Probably because you did not pay attention to your water chemistry. It is located where the pipes enter the heater. You remove it from the side of the manifold that is outside the heater. It is not a difficult job. Just make sure your pump does not come on while the heater manifold is open!

High pressure, and heater noise


I am not sure if you have solved this issue, or not, but if the PSI on the gauge is high then the problem may not be the heater. When you have the system turned on, and the PSI is reading higher than normal, just the flow of water coming out your return lines. If the flow is normal, like when you clean your filter, then see if you have a way to re-route the water so it bypasses the heater. If the PSI on gauge drops, then the issue is in the heater.

If the flow of water is slower than normal, with the PSI reading high, then you have a blockage somewhere in the system. It could be something simple like removing debris from skimmer and pump backets, to time to backwash, or clean, the filter.

If the flow of water is really hard and fast, with the PSI high as well, then you have too much water going through the system and need to slow it down.
