Response to I need to replace my 12 year old JWPA5EL series 1 HP motor on 27 ft round, and I see the BN25 is the choice. 1) Would there be any gain in upgrading to the 1.5 HP motor w/same impeller? 2) Now, the shaft seal leaks, psi reads 14-15 (9-11 normal and I would clean cartridge @ 12), and water flow is pretty much abysmal. Is this attributable to the motor, impeller, leaking seal, or all? Note, I verified no restrictions to flow in the plumbing.
