Is it my Bearings???

Pump: 1 hp Hayward (above ground pool)
Age: 2nd season
Filter SAND
Condition: New (I left the pump out over the winter)

Issue: I have a hig pitched squeeling sound that I believe may be the bearings, what I want to know is can I change the bearing myself if indeed it is the bearings or do I need special tools?

Obviously I should be taking the pump indoors but is it absolutley necessary to do that as my old Hayward was left out for many years w/o any issues.

Is it best to replace the bearings or the entire pump and how long does it take as I do not want to leave my pool w/o filtration during the repair process.

Bearing replacement is low cost and cost effective if you disassemble the unit and bring it to a shop. You do need special tools, but it's not really cost effective to buy them.
I've had bearings replaced on 30 year old shop vac, reciprocating saws, drills, etc.. Each time under $20.00, as I just handed them the part with the bearing(s) attached.
