  1. It is noisy and not in the least bit stealthy. It does vibrate. Don’t mount it near a room that needs to be quiet or it will drive you nuts with noise and vibration. Don’t use it if the houses are close together or your neighbor will complain about the noise. Pump is fairly strong, but will leak after about 4-5 years of daily use. Expect to change the electric motor after about 3-5 years of service. if you encounter a leak and the case has not cracked, try installing Hayward rebuild kit SRX3000TRA that replaces the seal and a couple of key gaskets.

  2. Have had several Hayward pumps. Never lasted more than two seasons. In July 2008 I had Polynesian Pools install one thinking I was doing something wrong. I was loosing water recently and found the seal on this one failed again. With past experience next to go will be the motor bearing. Contacted both pool company and Hayward. No simpathy from anyone. Just quoted me the warranty. which is perfectly timed with failure. Never again will I buy Hayward junk. By the way buy American, these are made in Mexico.

  3. This is really interesting, You are a very skilled blogger.
