    I am confused by this sentence "I googled the motor around 150. Not too much but I see whole new units for that much or 200!" What cost $150 and what cost $200, what is the difference? Are you thinking of replacing just the electric pump motor and not the pump itself? No a great idea, you will have an old pump with old impellers and bushing bolted to a brand new pump motor. Consider Hayward Matrix, about 4 or 5 down
