it hums and does not "work" ?? prolly burnt out

you'll have to get it sized correctly (your average sized pool is prolly gonna be a 1.5 hp pump) --- try the local pool store

once you get the pump, you'll need to remove the old one --- HOWEVER, while the plumbing's easy --- you may need an electrician to help with unhooking/hooking up the ground wire on the old and new pump

once it's plumbed back in, you're good to go!!! Be careful though --- look at what it is you're plumbing --- watch where you cut the pipe (when removing the old pump) --- you could have a small problem on your hands if you don't choose the right place to cut

so, pay attention to your plumbing --- and consider hiring an electrician (unless you are one or know what you're doing)

good luck!!
