Victory is MINE! (New pool pump)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

It was time to replace old Sta-rite pump. Local guy wanted $1500 to install new 1.5hp motor and pump same brand. Plus $300 to open my pool. EFF that - that’s a new Matthews full setup right there! I never worked with PVC plumbing before I figured how hard could it be?  Went to HD and a new section of 3” and some sleeves and elbows and the glue and primer. That and a hacksaw and it worked out great. The pump I got on Amazon and it got 5 star reviews and only cost like $169. So for less than $200 and 3 total hours of my time it’s time for a victory cigar!!!  Needless to say I am PUMPED!  Great use of time on a crappy weekend weather wise.

Nice job Jack. PVCis not hard to work with that's for sure but have to watch how long after you put together. That glue sets quick so you better have it right the first try.

if anyone wants a free rusted up wood-burning heater, come get it.  I am going to put it out to curb eventually.  It's full of copper on inside, has to be worth something - or you could sand blast and paint and weld new door hinges, and restore it . It worked well, just not needed with my solar cover and it takes 24 hours to take water from 74 to say 82 or so...

 I’ve job!! 

I wish I knew you were looking. I have this one and it’s free. I know the motor is working but the reservoir maybe cracked. If you want a back up, or anyone else needs one I live in Monmouth and commute few times per week to Jersey City
