Question about Pool & Spa
My pump makes so much noise that I can hear it 20 feet away. It sounds more like a a swimming pool pump that sits outside the water than a submersible pump. I don't know it that is normal, if it's a bearing can it be replaced or am I better off not messing with it?

No, the pump should not be noisy. It sounds like you have picked up a foreign object in the pump housing. you may have to pull the face off to determine. OR the pump/motor is indeed defective and should be returned.

you don't say the volume of the pool, but if the 1.5 was working before and you are not adding too many turns, it will work.

Bearing worn causing the impeller to shake.When it does this the the impellor is not close to the housing.causing it not to pump very well.Allso the noise you can hear is the impellor rubbing the casting by wobbling when spinning.Hope that was helpfull.Good luck.

If your pump is blocked in any way (usually a closed valve), then the pump cannot keep water flowing. It could be starved of water if blocked on the suction side, or an air leak. On the return side, it's usually a ``dead head`` pipe, or a closed outlet valve. In either case, the pump can overheat and actually boil the water within it. In that case, the fittings attached to it can deform and cause bigger air leaks, which compounds the problem. If you replace the fittings, reconnect the pipe and remove any blockages, you should be fine.

To get a new owner manual send them an email and they will email or send you one,
Is the pump was working fine for a long time before that happen?
There is a motor problem,
You can check your pump power cable try to find any damage or hole in it.
If the cable fine
And if the impeller and wheel still turn before triping the breaker It would be a good thing to check the amperage with a special electronic tool to see how much amperage the pump take,
if you are good in manipulating tool we can send you the breakdown or i can support you to open it and to check the motor trying to find any burn part in it. That way we will know right away if its worth to fix it.
let me know

A pump can whine for several reasons. Some noise is normal with a pump
but when it is very noisy it is indicating a potential problem. If the
seal is damaged it may whine and then it usually starts to leak(sometimes a seal leak allows water to get into the
bearing at the pump end and reduce its lifespan). If
the bearings are damages they will make excessive noise before doing
other bad things. These are the most common
noises indicating a problem.
If I hear one of these whines I usually make a mental note and let the customer know there is a potential issue. I give them the option of letting it go until it either starts to leak or worse or fixing it right away. Sometimes it operates normally for quite a while while other times it fails very soon. I hope this helps.
