    I went to a call and the complaint was that when the switch was turned on water comes out for about 3 seconds and then the pump turns off. so i did that and i heard a clicking in the pump start relay and i ohmed out the components and the capacitor was faulty but the start relay was so old that the replacement was nowhere to be found so replace the whole thing is only 45 or 50 dollars. but i don't know what HP the pump is. :realmad:

    what pump is the existing pump start for? Just match it up or up grade slightly. You should be fine. Only other solution I know would be to have the install specs or to pull the pump.
