Pull the back cap off the motor and hold the shaft as you spin off the impeller. The rest is straight forward enough.

My booster pump is much louder than last year. Can you oil it somehow


PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO OIL THIS, IT HAS A START SWITCH INSIDE THE MOTOR, IF IT GETS OIL ON IT IT WILL NOT ALLOW THE MOTOR TO START. AND CAN CAUSE THE MOTOR TO FAIL.

what may have happened is the pump seal has run hot a welded together preventing the motor from running
that would hav tripped the thermal overload if it has one or the start run capacitor may have failed
pull the pump apart and if it is just a seal it is around $30.00 to replace
if you do not have the knowledge to fix it , take it to a pump shop and get a proper diagnosis and quote before replacing the unit

Hello I am replacing switches for my pool. there are two pumps,one is basic recirculation and the other is a booster. The origional switches disintegrated when I removed to cover so no history of how it...


Well, motor starters are usually used in that scenario. I suspect that is the reason the switches fell apart (too many amps). As long as the pump motors aren't over 1 HP each and you are using DPST 20 amp switches rated for 2 HP,(still not best practice) here's how to wire them:
Connect the 2 incoming 240 volt wires from the circuit breaker to a screw on each side of the _top_ of switch #1 (main pump). Connect a pigtail to one screw on the bottom of switch #1, then twist that pigtail together with another pigtail and one of the outgoing wires to the main pump. Connect the other pigtail to the top of switch #2. Repeat for the other bottom screw on switch #1.
The outgoing wires to the booster pump then go to the bottom of switch #2.

If the motor doesnt have enough power to trip the switch you will have to replace it. The motor assembly is replacable without having to replace the whole box. I know you can get them at Lowes and Home Depot.
