Not much to report, the main pool pump’s bearings are shot and will have to be replaced. See my earlier articles for my thoughts on how a swimming pool’s expenses tend to add up. I have added the flocculate and the solids suspended in the water are now sinking to the bottom. I will probably have to change out the main pool pump and pump motor. From a labor standpoint, motor and pump change outs are easy. A little wiring and a little plumbing skills are necessary. This time last year i had to replace the little fingers that reside at the bottom of a sand filter and that task was much more daunting. Take a look at the number of cap screws(bolts) and nut that hold your sand filter together and you will wish you had a high speed impact driver.
