I bought a Straightline-Launch Pad 1000GPH pump last season. Probably used it between 10-15 times. Tried it for the first time this season and noticed it was only pumping about 250GPH or so. It was fully submerged and not sucking any air into the line. I definately will not buy another one of their pumps. Any other recommendations?
I've used my straightline alot more than that w/ no probs, have you opened it up and made sure its not clogged? I would also contact straightline or whoever you bought it from, I've gotten great response directly from straightline.
First thing I did was open it up. Impeller looked fine and no debris. The motor just doesn't sound right when turning. I will take it back to where I bought it to see what they have to say. Now if I can only find my reciept.
Kind of off the subject, but some usefull info for people with pump probs. I noticed my plug started rusting and I would have to wiggle the crap out of it in the socket to get it to work. I opened it up and realized thier is a fuse on the inside. Changed the fuse and its good as new. Now if I can get it to stop leaking.
