Pfizer Female Viagra

Nov 2nd, 2013 by Lynn Demarest in Miscellaneous

No prescription viagra One day my pool pump starting humming loudly before starting up. No prescription viagra Then it started flipping the breaker and not starting at all, no prescription viagra except after several resets of the breaker. No prescription viagra (This, no prescription viagra I later discovered, no prescription viagra was a dumb and dangerous thing to do. No prescription viagra Breakers flip for a reason.)

No prescription viagra I went on the Internet and found that a blown “start capacitor” is the usual reason a pool pump hums without starting.

No prescription viagra UST1202 electric motor for pool pump

No prescription viagra Turns out the 2 horsepower electric motor that runs the pump has two capacitors, no prescription viagra a “run” capacitor riding inside its own little cover on top and a “start” capacitor hidden in the metal cap that is held on by two bolts to the end of the motor.  (The left side of the picture to the right.)

No prescription viagra I got a new capacitor and put it in. No prescription viagra I started the pump up and the new capacitor blew its top.

No prescription viagra I called my local electric motor repair shop. No prescription viagra They told me I hooked up the capacitor wrong. No prescription viagra There are two terminals on the capacitor. No prescription viagra You’re supposed to hook both yellow wires to one side and the red-white wire to the other. No prescription viagra I’d put the yellow wires on opposite terminals and blew it out immediately.

No prescription viagra The shop closed at noon. No prescription viagra It was eleven. No prescription viagra I raced downtown to buy a second start capacitor and installed it as instructed. No prescription viagra I also installed a new switch the guys at the shop gave me. No prescription viagra It was, no prescription viagra seemingly, no prescription viagra simple to put in. No prescription viagra But the motor died again.

No prescription viagra I worked for hours trying to get the motor free from the pump. No prescription viagra I have a Jacuzzi pump, no prescription viagra which connects to the motor with a large plastic connecting ring that screws on. No prescription viagra I couldn’t budge it for the life of me. No prescription viagra Neither could I remove the rusted-out Tapcon concrete anchors used to tie the pool pump itself to the slab.

No prescription viagra I’d found a video on the net that said to use a rubber mallet to remove the ring. No prescription viagra I didn’t have a rubber mallet, no prescription viagra but my wife felt sorry for me and ran out and bought one. No prescription viagra Viola! Motor was free. No prescription viagra Thinking I’d blown a second start capacitor, no prescription viagra somehow, no prescription viagra I lugged the motor to the shop. No prescription viagra Later that day, no prescription viagra they told me the capacitor was fine. No prescription viagra I’d screwed up installing the freebie switch and a wire had been cut by a nearby rotor. No prescription viagra Forty dollars later, no prescription viagra I had a working pump motor and was a little wiser.

No prescription viagra Now for the final challenge.

No prescription viagra Like a dope, no prescription viagra I’d disconnected the pump motor without taking care to notice how it was connected to the three wires leading into the metal cap on the end. No prescription viagra The green grounding wire was easy. No prescription viagra It went under the green grounding screw. No prescription viagra Then there were two blue wires.  Turns out the pump is 230 volts A/C, no prescription viagra so both those wires are “hot” and it doesn’t matter which terminal they plug into. No prescription viagra The motor will work either way. No prescription viagra So I plugged one wire onto L1 and the other on L2 and let it rip.

No prescription viagra Nothing blew up, no prescription viagra the pump started, no prescription viagra praise Jesus.

No prescription viagra As it turned out, no prescription viagra I fixed the pump for less than $100 and a few hours of research and trial and error.

No prescription viagra At least I didn’t electrocute myself.

No prescription viagra The troubles won’t end here, no prescription viagra however. No prescription viagra The guys at the shop told me the bearings in the motor are going to fail soon, no prescription viagra and that means either replacing them myself (having the shop do it would cost more than half what a new motor would) or buying a new motor for between two- and three-hundred dollars.

No prescription viagra Or I could fill the pool with dirt and plant tomatoes.
