Pool pump motor temp
Have a sta-rite 1HP pump motor. When the pool was opened this year I noticed that it was leaking at the connection between pump and motor. Pool company replaced the shaft seal and it stopped leaking for about 2 weeks then started again. They came out again yesterdy and replaced the shaft seal again that they said was broken in half.
The motor is very hot and I am wondering if this may be the problem with the seal. When I say hot I mean you cannot lay your hand on it. It is going on season 9 I believe. How hot is normal and what is the normal lifespan. Pool is open from mid May to beginning of Oct. runs 8-10 hours a day.
