: Well, the fella from Kiefers called me back this morning...said they can
: get me the new pump and motor for between $400 and $500...suggested
: that I just buy the motor as it would be less...(Kiefer is the big
: swim outfit that has a retail spa store in Waukegan IL...)...at that
: point, I began to look for a motor repair fella...found one in town
: here, says he's been doing motors like mine for years...should not be
: a problem, explained the whole process to me....says $129 should do
: the job unless there is some major rust that needs to be taken off
: and parts replaced...he won't know till he sees it, of course, then
: it may add a few bucks to the cost but it's doable so far as he is
: told now.
: George will be here at 7 am...(his favorite time of the day, not
: mine...) and by 8, we both will be at the shop in town with the
: motor, which will be back and ready by early afternoon...and he will
: put it in...His grandparents have a summer home about 5 miles from
: mine, right around the corner from the motor shop...so he'll double
: back when it's finished, get it and return to put it in. In the
: meantime, I can check out that bottom pipe and get that issue
: resolved...maybe if it's flaked, I can put a vacuume inside it?
: Sounds like a plan, eh?
: Seems reasonable if I am going to get a rebuilt motor from someone on
: the net that may or may not be a piece of junk, I might as well use
: my own for as long as it lasts...
: This motor repair guy says humidity is the cause of the problem...so
: maybe I have to start leaving my gazebo windows wide open rather than
: just cracked...(decisions, decisions, decisions, why is nothing ever
: Let us all say one to the big guy upstairs that this can all work out
: (and I am not referring to Dr. Spa...)(ask him to stop the world
: strife situation too while you guys are all speaking with
: him....first before my problem, actually on that one...I know my
: place in line when it comes to problems versus irritations)
