Product Description

 Premium-Efficiency 2-Speed Pool Motor with Integrated Timer


A. O. Smith’s new 2Green two-speed premium efficiency replacement pump motor with integrated timer packs tremendous value into an easy to- nstall package. Energy efficiency continues to drive the needs of the pool market, from legislation to increased awareness of energy costs and environmental impact. And thanks to the 2Green’s energy efficient high and low speed windings paired with an onboard timer interface, energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 58% over single speed motors. The all-in-one integrated motor and timer means less work for an installer and maximum energy savings for pool and spa owners. A. O. Smith’s 2Green is Title 20 compliant** and best of all, there is no additional wiring required for new construction or retrofit installations!


**California’s Title 20 legislation states that pumps > 1HP (total) must be 2-speed or variable speed, and must have a control to default to low-speed (i.e. timer)

Hello, Can I install this pump of the Hayward PowerFlo-LX-SP1510Z1XBC filter attachment?

Hayward super pump installed in 2013. I’m now on my 3rd or 4th century replacement motor. Usually Run 24 hours in summer and freeze protection runs it in winter. Provide me with some efficient options that will reduce power consumption from the EE replacement to energy star certification. Provide me options and it doesn’t have to be Hayward unless the warranty is that of other high dollar appliances. Thank you

Hi Brannon, Could you send us a few photos of your pump and motor? Please take a close up shot of the motor label as well as a wide shot of the complete pump to include the pipes going in and out of the pump. To supply photos simply click the reply link below and upload your photos. Once we get those photos we can make the proper recommendation.

    Hi Brannon, You can upgrade the motor on your Hayward Super Pump to this 1.65 HP Variable Speed Motor If you wanted to take advantage of the higher speeds of this motor then I would suggest upgrading to this 1-1/2 HP Super Pump Impeller and you will need this Hayward Super Pump Seal Kit when you replace your motor. There are a few items of note the VSP motor suggested can only be wired 230V and not 115V. If you want something that integrates with Prologic where you can adjust the speeds of the motor from inside with the ProLogic then you might want to consider the Hayward Super Pump Variable Speed Pump.

      Continuing on with my original reply. Here is an article showing the Expected Savings by going with a Variable Speed Pool Pump. Also if you go with the replacement motor option then your Prologic will turn the pump on and off and then the programming in which you set on the controller of the motor will take over from there. If you go with the complete new Super Pump Variable Speed Pump then all of the programming would be done by the Pro Logic controller.

I'm replacing a 10 year old AO Smith motor, 3/4 hp...ST1072...56J frame...115v...will this work for me? Also, what tune-up kit do you recommend? The impeller seems to be okay, but it's at least as old as the pump; should I replace it? Lastly, I have limited space above the motor due to PVC pipe going to the filter; how much room do I need above to be able to open the timer cover? Thanks!

 Reply

A  Answered on 5/9/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi John, Yes this will work for you if you are wiring 115V.  The cover is about 6 inches so you will need at least 6 inches of space above the motor to full lif the lid. Could you send us a wide shot  photo of the complete pump to show the pipes going in and out of the pump? This would allow us to suggest the proper seal kit and impeller. Simply click the reply link below to upload your photos.

            • Commented on 5/11/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

              Hi John, For 115V Variable Speed then you will need to replace the complete pump with this 1.4 HP Waterway Variable Speed Pump 115V/230V This ports on this pump are not in the exact same spot as your current pump so you will have a little re-plumbing but nothing major.

                    Hello again, Patrick. First, the motor and all the parts arrived quickly, as promised. Installation was straightforward and with the help of a couple of your videos it went well. So now the pump is working again, but on the High setting, after about 3 minutes, I get a Fault 12 code: "Overload Fault, Remove Power and Check Impeller Size". The motor seems to work fine on low speed, but high speed results in Fault 12. Any ideas? Thank you!

                      Hi John, I have never run across that fault code but it implies that the impeller is too powerful for the motor but that should not be the case as the motor has a True HP of 1.13 and the Impeller you ordered has a True HP of 1.1. You don't want your impeller True HP to exceed your motor True HP and that is not the case here. We could send out an impeller with a True HP of .75 and see if that resolves the fault code. Let me know if you would like for me to do that?

I need to replace the motor on my Hayward SuperPump for a saltwater in-ground pool. Would this pump be a direct replacement for an AO Smith C48J2N131 (3/4 hp 56j frame)? I am also looking at the GOKIT3SALT kit for when I install the new pump, is this the correct seal kit? Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/26/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Slade. This B973T motor can be used if you're using 115 volts. GOKIT3SALT is also the correct kit.

I have 5,500 gallon in ground fiberglass pool. I currently have a Hayward SP2607X10. (By my calculations, it is way oversized.) Considering replacing the current 1 HP motor with this 2 speed motor. My concern is about the solar panels to heat the pool during the day. Would this motor be capable of moving sufficient water up to the roof panels while operating at a lower speed? (I'm figuring I would need to start at full power for a few minutes to prime the panels that drain down at night)
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, H Mark. Unfortunately, this motor operating the SP2607X10 pump will NOT be sufficient to move water through the panels at low speed, only at high speed.

I am considering switching to SWG, but I do not have a stand alone timer. Is it possible/easy to connect a SWG to a pump/timer combo similar to B973T? Or are there SWG that have auto flow control, or a built in timer? Thanks, Robb
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/28/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Robb. You cannot operate an SWG using the Timer on this motor. However, you can wire this motor directly to the breaker and install a timer to operate the SWG.

Hi. You're not able to bypass or remove the controller of this motor. Making any changes to the motor or the controller will void the warranty.

Hi. Yes, you can use this 2-Green Motor - B973T with model SP2607X10 using the same impeller and using 115 volts. The SP2607C is the correct impeller for your model pump using this motor. I will also recommend that you get the Hayward Super Pump Tune Up Kit - GOKIT3 or GOKIT3SALT

?     Asked on 7/10/2017 by Joel

I have a Hayward Superpump SP2610x15. The motor on the unit right now is 1 Hp with SF of 1.1 and it's wired as 110V. Would this motor act as a replacement as 1.5hp is too much pump for my DE filter.
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/12/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Joel. It appears that the motor was downsized to a 1HP uprate pump if the current motor is rated at 1hp with an SF of 1.1. In this case you can use this Century B2973T 2-Green Motor. I would also recommend double checking the impeller # before purchasing and if on low speed this motor will provide adequate water flow.

A  Answered on 5/29/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

You should not need to pull the impeller to find a part number on it in order to identify the pump model. It should be molded into the impeller face. If you cannot locate a pump model then you can send in a few images of the front pump housing through our support request page so we can try and identify it.

 Reply

A  Answered on 9/13/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Nadine, This B973T motor can be used as a replacement for the C48K2N143B1 motor if you have 115 volts. If the motor is the only item being powered by the timer you can remove the trippers and wire the motor to the timer just for power. I would recommend replacing the pump seal and o-rings but we will need to know the model of the pump in order to locate the correct seals.
