Customer Question

I have an 8 year old WFE-4 1 hp Pentair whisperflo pump, we just changed the seals we may need to replace the whole thing though. My question is, if the pump does need replacing is one of the signs that my hayward pool vac is not moving well if not at all? I think the suction is not as strong as it should be. Thank you!
