What's the cost of a Hayward pool pump? Hayward pool pumps range from $500 to $1,200. They have a number of single and variable speed models to choose from.
On average, pool pumps last eight to 12 years before needing replacement. Over time, it's normal for pool parts to begin to wear down. In addition, swimming pool technology has come a long way in the last decade.
On average, pool pump replacement costs about $440, average prices ranged from $80 to $800 for pool pump replacement in the US in 2020.
When determining the magic number of replacement parts cost versus the cost of the whole pump, we generally suggest 60-75% as the standard. If the cost to repair is within or over this range, it is smarter to replace the pump. This way you have a brand new pump and warranty covering any mishaps down the line.

If you hear a pop and a click when turning on the motor, it's a sign of electrical failure either inside your pump or inside your home. You may need to do some electrical detective work to find out what's causing the lack of power.
Most pool pump motors last at least 6-8 years, often longer. But that's if you're referring to magnetic drive pool motors, which are used in newer variable speed pumps.
A pool pump can overheat in two ways: because of an electrical problem or friction. While electrically related failures are by far the most common cause for pump overheating, as we will discuss at length, there is also the potential for a friction fire to develop if a pump is starved for water.
One of the most reliable pumps on the market, the Hayward Super Pump has made a name for itself because of its reliability. But there is much more to it. It is quiet and energy-efficient and the clear basket that requires no tools to remove making it easy to maintain.
A professional electrician will be needed to disconnect the wiring before a pump can be removed. Once a new pump is installed, an electrician will again be necessary to reconnect the wires to the new pump. A do-it-yourself homeowner with basic mechanical aptitude can replace the pool pump in a relatively short time.
A replacement motor is generally going to cost you in the neighborhood of $150 – $300 depending on the horsepower. Add another $15 – $30 for the absolutely necessary, non-negotiable new shaft seal.
If the pool pump motor shaft isn't rotating, check to see if the motor is jammed with debris. If the pump turns on but isn't running full steam and you hear a humming noise, check your capacitor. The capacitor starts your pump with a jolt of electricity.
Overheating. For safety reasons, many pool pumps are designed to shut off automatically if they begin to overheat. The mechanisms that perform this task are known as thermal overload switches. If your pump continues to shut off, it could mean that the thermal overload switches are going bad.
The most common reasons for a noisy pool pump include blocked lines, a blocked impeller, faulty bearings and seals or unsecure mountings. The problems cause noises including loud rattling, grinding, gurgling, whining, buzzing, high pitched noises and vibrations.
Every pool must turn over at least once a day, so most pool pumps should run approximately 8 hours a day. But here's the thing: you don't have to run your pool pump consecutively. You can choose to run it for three hours in the morning before you leave for work and another 5 hours in the evening.
Outside of the air conditioner, the pool pump is the largest electricity consumer in the average pool-containing home. According to the study, at the national average of 11.8 cents per KWh, a pool pump alone can add as much as $300 a year to an electric bill.

Most pool pump warranties are to the tune of 90 days full replacement to one year on parts. The typical pump is going to last five to seven years if properly plumbed and cared for. If it's going to fail early, it's usually going to do so within months.
