Response to Dave - A noisy pump is usually a sign that your pump's motor bearings are going. Most pool owners replace the pump's motor at this stage. A tuneup kit will not solve this problem. You could also pull the motor out and check the impeller. If it is damaged, it could be rubbing on the side of the pump housing.
