My pool pump is very hot to touch.  It is not loud and seems to be working fine.  I am concerned with how hot it is, can barely touch it.   Should I replace the motor or have it serviced?

Hi Caperdoug,

I would suggest replacing the motor, the proper replacement motor would be this 1 HP Super Pump Replacement Motor You will also need a Hayward Super Pump Seal Kit when you replace your motor. We put together this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project. All of these items are in Stock Ready to Ship!

Thank You
