Just discovered our pool pump has died, anyone any idea of the cost of a new one? An Astral Victoria (?) has been recommended as a replacement.

What is your location?

Astral are a common make

The pump shop on the Lapta/alsanjack border has some good reviews

can it be repaired?

I aint seen many of them around for a while.

Last one i bought of them last year was from Noyan near the Chatalkoy Lemar. He could help.

But are you sure your pump is dead?

You can probably get it repaired, unless the main plastic bodywork is damaged.

If not then you can take it to somone Like press teknik. see if they can fix it.

they are on the coast road between Lapta & alsancak.

call em on 0392 821 2500.

Best to just take it round though as thier english, it not so good!

Oh & unless you get the same make pump as you had before, You will find that it wont fit your existing pipework which will need loadsa cutting & glue & stuff.

Bit bothersome, specially when you are talking around 200 for a new pump!

My neighbour's pump was completely burnt out and not repairable according to a well known pool company. He checked around and found fairly consistently that it would be about 350 for a new one plus fitting which might be as much as 75 because of matching to existing pipes. He took it to the pump repair company mentioned by Batgirl (message 3) and they rewound the motor, fitted 2 new bearings, a new diaphram, a new impeller, and a new gasket. The cost was 180tl, refitting was easy and it is still working beautifully 1 year later.

It must be worth a try. But keep clear of the Alsation as you walk down the ramp to the workshop underneath because the crafty devil sits back hoping you will come within reach of his chain. I don't think he will bite but he sure barks loudly.

Many thanks for all your suggestions. We are at Esentepe but it sounds as though the place batgirl and JJ refer to is worth trying. Does anyone know what the name of the place is and directions?



Thanks

Should have mentioned the current pump that has died is a Nozbart, does the info about the company on the Lapta/Alasancak border still apply?

I don't see why not, their workshop is full of different types. If your pump has been sold in TRNC at any time then they will probably know it. You will need to take the pump with you so find someone who can remove it without flooding your pump room. Directions as best as I can remember are as follows:

Drive out to through Girne and Alasancak until you see the Starling supermarket on your right at the end of Alsancak. A few hundred metres past, still on your right, you will see the place. It is a big shop window behind which the floor is covered with scores of new pumps. Park in front and then walk down the ramp on the left hand side into the workshop - they will give you an estimate there and then and a completion date.

I will be out that way this afternoon so if you want I will drop in and get the phone number for you and at least get the name of the place.

JJ thanks for the directions, I will send my husband there tomorrow with pump. I'm off to immigration with my brother but I know where I'd rather be going...



Mickeyfin - does Mr Pipe do repairs or just new pumps? If we can't get it repaired we will check him out.

JJ - Yes they can. Apparently the condenser, armature, wiring, gasket, etc were 'bozuk' but they have the technology to rebuild it, so we are getting a bionic pump back for the princely sum of 180 TL.

Thanks to you, Soupseed and Batgirl for the recommendation.

"The price of a pool pump" is the purchase price (plus repair) plus energy consumption (in kW) times running time divided by lifetime.

in general you can say:

cheap pumps : expensive

good reliable pool pumps: better

good reliable solar pool pumping: much better.

if you look closely to the subject consumption and lifetime, the purchase price will become more or less unimportant and sometimes its just cheaper to bin the old one. or get it repaired, install a solar pump and keep the old one as a "spare one".

Running costs for a 80 ton pool:

1,1 kW intake pump in average 6 hrs per day x 365 days: 2400 kW/hrs.

kw price Kibtek in average incl Vat 0,5 TL = 1200 TL or 600 euros (price today)

payback approx 6 years or 16,5 % on invested money....

Kibsolar.



If I invest 3,400 Euros in offshore TL Bonds I can get 15%+ today guaranteed for three years.



That yields 510 Euros per annum in the year one. 586 in year 2, 674 in year 3.



Don't see where the payback in 6 years comes in. Although if I had money doing nothing I'd love to go green.

Groucho.

you pay 3400 for a solar pool pump and yield 600 in less electricity bill. 6x 600 is 3600. thats 16% with no risk as you own the lot.

electricity prices most probably rising during following years, so maybe 20% are possible after 3,4,5 years.....

After payback: yield continues for the next 20 years (pv modules lifetime min 25 years, pump 10-15 years...if you need to replace the pump, it will cost you "two years" )

nice that you dont expect any yield from "going green". its easier then to sell you something with paybacks of... maybe 6- 10 years.. with no risk....

anyway, a 15% offer shows clearly a) how weak the TL is in reality, or b) how close we are to the next financial desaster.....

Kibsolar,



have you looked into roof shingles yet ??



If I can get the piece of land that I want back in the UK for a self build I think I will be going this route.



see here - http://www.solarplexus1.com/solarShingles.html





probably be ideal here considering all the leaking roofs I have seen just lately.



Jim





PS - I only run the pool pump for an hour a day between December & Feb, if that, so 6hrs a day wouldn't apply to me. Pool doesn't look its best (due to mud washing into it off the garden during those recent storms) at the mo but within 2 days its back to normal when I decide the time right to sort it.

no, i dont use roof shingles. not good here in cyprus (you need to ventilate pv modules!, otherwise too hot and efficiency goes down, quite complicate installation).

no matter how you use your pool pump. choose eg your solar pump system smaller and/or accept a 7 year payback...

Make sure it is the pump before you spend out,because all we needed to replace was heat protector,sits on top of the pump sometimes can burn out if becomes damp.20ytl..
