I have a Hayward 3400VSP pool pump. I have went through 4 motors in last 6 years. I am unsure if a motor should only last this long, or if they are constantly having problems with this pump. Before I spend another $600 on another replacement motor, I was wondering if there is an aftermarket motor company that I could use as a bolt on?

Should I just buy a whole new pump, from a different manufactor? Should I just fork over the $$$ and try it one more time?

How long do pool pumps usually last? Is 4 motors in the last 6 years excessive?
