Sounds like you have experienced a common problem. Your pump apparently had failed. The motor is in need of replacement. If this is so: my suggestion is to replace with a real Pool Industry Pump! Not an Intex toy.
Have a service provider come out and confirm this, if you can't do it yourself, then if it is confirmed that your pump failed, get one from a Pool Industry Supplier with a real pool pump like: Pentair, Hayward, Waterway or Jandy/Zodiac.

sounds as if your getting an high back pressure from your sand filter , more often back flushes will help this from happening , also installing a prefilter on suction hose will keep large debris from entering sand filter and blinding it off , this pre filter can be purchased or made from a simple pair of used ladys stocking , but all will need to be checked often for clogging off

IF YOUR ASKING IF YOU CAN REPLACE THE MULTIPORT VALVE ON TOP OF SAND FILTER HOUSING WITH WATER STILL IN POOL , SURE ITS POSSIBLE . 1ST UNPLUG PUMP POWER !!!! SECOND USING A COUPLE OF TRASH BAGS ADD ENOUGH AIR INSIDE OF THEM TO FIT JUST TIGHT ENOUGH DOWN INTO SKIMMER ON SIDE (ME I USE A OLD POOL TOY) WEIGHT OF WATER WILL HOLD THEM IN THERE , NOW YOU CAN DISSCONNECT YOUR HOSES , A SLIGHT TRICKLE MAY COME OUT (EASY TO REPLACE LOST WATER VOLUME) REPLACE THE VALVE , WAIT FOR GLUE TO COMPLETLY DRY (IF USED) THEN RECONNECT HOSES , REMOVE TRASH BAGS FROM SKIMMER(LET AIR OUT) , RECONNECT PUMP AND TEST FOR LEAKS

pool pumps should run at least two hours for every one hour of pool use , this should be doubled if pool recieves a heavy useage of more than three swimmers timers on most of the intex models are set with trip pins , in towards center to be off and out from center to be on

over time motors get noiseier by wear that occurs in shaft sleeve bearings , this wear is accelerated by water/rust that might get inside , also if pump is new not running a Level base will wear out pump/motor early as well
motor replacemnt is most common way of resoloving this

1st make sure filter basket is all the way down ,It only will fit all the way down 1 Way , this is a common problem with these, 2nd on new housings allways use a touch of foodgrade/ water proof grease on O-ring seal , this will make the seal pop right into its groove and seal up tight !! this grease is easy to find in your local hardware supply store look for Kitchen faucet grease , only use this type of grease Not petrolem jelly as this will chemically dammage the housing and ring

maybe your pump has lost it's prime? prime the pump with it OFF and use a garden hose connected to house supply , remove hose and turn pump ON you should see dishcharge shoot out some bubbles at first then they should dissapate in -60 seconds , if bubbles continue, you have a suction side leak in maybe a filter lid or hose connection this will make the filter loose its prime after every off cycle

use a garden hose connected to house supply to fill the housing and pump head , after that Pump should be able to take over and use water pulled from skimmer , if all your joints and seals are good , if it looses prime ,even after resting for a little while , ck all your joints and seals for leaks ,remember not all leaks ,Leak Out some leak In !!

INTEX Sand... | Answered on Jan 16, 2015


if you mean theres water leaking from the drive shaft of pump comming from motor ,Im not sure how you can see this as the motor pump is all in one housing on these , usually only the larger ones (1.5 hp +) have a seperate motor from the pump to allow viewing of this junction, Anyways on the all in one units , there not reparable , you'll need to replace unit , only the larger ones have replaceable seals , this should only be done by a qualified person that has experience with mechanicial seals as they dammage very easly durring improper install and adjusments and do tend to be costly
