Quickly Resolving a Squealing Whining Pool Pump

A Squealing Whining Pool Pump


My pump is squealing and or whining ?

This is usually an indication that the bearings are worn out and need to be replaced. Turn the pump off.

Either remove the pump and take it to a small engine / motor repair shop or contact a pool company to have it serviced.


How do I keep my water clear in the meantime ?

It is always a good idea to have a quality brand of chlorine pucks on hand no matter what type of sanitizing system you use. In the event of pump failure or chlorine generator failure we recommend that you do either or both of the following:

  1. Put some chlorine pucks in the skimmer basket
  2. Put some chlorine pucks in a floating feeder in the pool water
