Is pp a power pump or pool pump or what. You need to provide more info about the problem. Pictures might help. Based on info it sounds like a bearing going bad.


I may go home hungry, but not tired and hungry.

Yes, what is pp?

The pump is short cycling and overheating the motor which will kill the pump very quickly.

So what are you using this pump for?

If you have a pressure tank, have you checked the air pressure precharge to be 1-2 psi less than the turn the pump on switch setting with no water in the tank? I.E. 30/50 gets 29-28 psi with no water in the tank.
