If it only hums, the motor isn't able to rotate. First disconnect the driveshaft and try to run the motor. If it runs, the pump is bound up/clogged. If the motor continues to hum, the bearing is shot. Repair or replace motor. Good luck.

Absolutely. Many people excacate and then place an above ground pool into the hole such that a foot or two stays above ground. Also make sure you either have clearance for your filter system or run the line into the ground and up to the filter as well.

about an inch below the TOP of the filter...there should be a line on your filter...

Just enough so that the skimmer is above the water and the pipes to the filter and filter can be drained.

Proper water chemistry instead of neglect. Long filter periods and a clean filter.

Specifically where is it leaking? At the gasket? Replace gasket.

If I was to make a guess, I would say if you have not tried backwashing the filter, then it is time to change the filter media inside the filter.

For the first cleaning in spring set it to "waste" while vacuuming. Subsequently you can leave it on "filter" when vacuuming.

Yes, above ground pools must be maintained regularly. The chemicals must be kept in balance, the filter emptied, and bugs and debris skimmed out daily. Sometimes the pool liner and filter sand may need replacing, as well.

That's quite possible. A filter, or filter change should do the trick.

That all depends on the size of the filter. It should say how many pounds of sand you need on the side of your sand filter.
