Our pool motor is making a high pitched whining noise (like a bearing is going). We just replaced it a few years ago. We currently have a Century Centurion HP1 square flange motor (B2853). What is the energy efficient motor comparible to this motor? When looking at our pump manual, I'm not sure if this was even the correct replacement motor for our pump. When we replaced the motor, we matched the amps and voltage, even though the frame was different (the manual says 48y frame, but the 56y frame motors had the correct amps and volts).
There is also a leak coming from the pump. The pump is maybe 11 years old and we haven't had any other problems except for a small leak. The pump has been discontinued (Pentair Pinnacle 342854). Should we replace the housing or the entire pump? Again, would like to go energy efficient if the whole pump needs replacing.
Thanks for any expert advice!
