Response to We're using our 355 pool/spa pump for a garden pond and waterfall. It has done the job well. This spring, the pump would not turn on. It is also the first time we left it outside for the winter. I'm debating between purchasing a new pump or replacing the motor. My pump motor part number says - 7-177781-01. Will your 7-177781-02 work with it? Also what does 1081/1563 pump duty mean? Do you think it is worth replacing the motor or could something else be wrong? Thanks for your help.
