Rained last night big time so the pump went out again. Followed the
suggestions of Trader (via Oren) and disconnected the pump from the load
side. Turned on the pump and the ground fault did not trip. This
indicates that the water is apparently getting into the pump. We've
called the pool guys out to replace it. It is nearly 20 years old, so I
probably got my money's worth.
Thanks again to all who responded....even if I did not see them for
?Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive,
but what they conceal is vital.?
No real good way to do that because of the way it was put together. I
have had that pool for nearly 30 years and this is the first time I have
that particular problem. This particular pump has been outside for 20
years with no problem. To enclose it would require moving the pump and
replumbing. Much cheaper to just get a new pump, especially since I'll
be selling the house next year.
But thanks for the suggestion.
