I can't see how throwing out a $275.00 pump and that does not include the shipping
of $45.00 to be very "GREEN". All that was wrong with mine was a $3.00 capacitor and was a little low on oil. The parts list did not list the oil but tec said 5-20 non detergent motor oil is fine. This was a Burcam pump. Finding parts for any thing is getting very hard I looked on the internet for hours to find the capacitor.
This is just a throw it out and buy a new one society. Burcam had one for around $40.00 plus shipping. I found one for $3.00 plus shipping.
