Forum Title: Closing with non working pump
My Doughboy pump is about five years old and the timer went on it at the beginning of the year. I was home all summer so I manually turned it on and off while I debated the pros and cons of a VS vs a 2 speed vs a 1 speed pump. Long story short, I went to start my pump yesterday and it's completely dead. the swim season is done here in NY so I'm thinking of cleaning what I can and closing the pool now and buying a new pump and timer this winter thinking gthey'll be a little cheaper. Terrible idea? My current pump and timer are integrated, for the price of a new timer to fix myself I can add $100 and have a brand new pump. Thoughts?

I don't think you'll save much money at all but you never know. I would suggest maybe getting the new pump and using it to help get your pool closed. Then you'll probably open with a nice clean pool in the Spring.

There's some electrical work that needs to be done as well since I'd be going from a twist lock plug to a traditional three prong outlet. Not all that difficult work but I need to get some time to do it. Basically, the only downside is having to slam it to start the season, right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
