It’s finally over… almost. We’re at a 95% solution on this pool pump and for once I feel like I’ve got a handle on the situation. I went through so many stages of panic and sorrow. I thought for sure I had thousands of dollars of repairs before me. Overall I think I spent somewhere around $250 if we include the tools, the piping, and the motor repair.
As is not a surprise, I completely goof the PVC install. Sigh. But you know, we’re getting there. We’re lucky to even own a pool. Not going to complain. I just need to learn how to deal with it!
Plan B was to try tubing. It was near impossible to match up the original tubing. The tubing I found at Lowes was reinforced and not at all pliable. No hardware or pool stores in this area carry the type of flexible tubing I’m was looking for. I settled (and crossed my fingers) for 1 1/2″ industrial PVC tubing. Seems to have worked out.
