Why is my pool pump not pumping water?
Your pump could be leaking water, or the bearings might need to be replaced instead of the entire motor. Screeching is also a sign that your motor bearings need to be replaced.

All pool filters are labeled with an information tag on their tank. This tag includes the name of the manufacturer, model name, the various sizes of the filter in that line of models. The size of your specific unit should be marked or highlighted on this tag.
