Question about Plumbing
Pump covered and stored outside in winter, but with plumbing anti-freeze in housing. Pump turned on in for irrigation and did not turn over. Circuit breaker tripped after 5 - 10 seconds. Heard a 'buzzing' sound - presumably motor was trying to turn over the pump.
I am mechanically inclined but need to find the most common problem and solution(s). Suspect pump has seized due to corrosion - can this be fixed or do I need a new pump and/or motor? Should the pump have been taken indoors for the winter?
Yes it has seized,the brushes are most likely to far gone to fix.you need a new one.yes store inside in the winter months!
