Pump keeps burning out
So as of last week, I am on pump #3. The first one lasted 1 year, got really hot and seized up. The PB came out and replaced it for free and said that he never has issues with Pentair pumps.
That one lasted until last week which is almost 1 year to the date of the replacemnt of the original.
Once again the PB came out, scratched his head and said he never has problems with these pump motors. I asked him if I should build a cover high above it to keep it shaded and he said I could but he never does and the pumps always seem to last.
So far this hasn't cost me a dime but I am sure at some point I will be expected to pay for these pumps. So- my question is "why am I burning through pumps?"
My pool is 14,000 gallons, the main pump is 1.5hp Pentair Whisperflow. Pump time is 8 hours/day. Water features run off of a seperate pump.Pad is ~20 feet from pool.
Here is an old picture of the equipment pad taken before we made it look prettier over there.
