It looks like my return pump has been precipitated to death. Is it too late for my pump? I put it a vinegar bath, but when i plugged it in I heard nothing..

What is it?  Have you disassembled it to see what's going on?  Sometimes the magnets swell and lock up.  It it's a magnetic type internal pump and it's electrical it's probably shot.  If it's the impeller and magnet you can get a replacement (most of the time).

Do you need something to get you by until you get it fixed?
