Hello , I have a proline 1.5 hp motor for a 18 ft round pool with a sand filter was wondering if the 1 hp motor would be ok?

Currently have the Hayward Power Flow LX 3/4 hp pump that quit working.

I have a Pentair dynamo 1hp motor, would the pureline 1hp motor be able to be used in my application. I sure I would have to change hoses / fittings ?
For an above ground application, this would be a suitable replacement. You would need to use standard plumbing/hoses and fittings versus if you have a set up per Pentair only. I.E. unions at the pump. Also, you should be able to get those standard fittings, hoses and or plumbing at a local hardware store.

Hi Jack, I would suggest this PL1501 PureLine Pure Pro XL pump for your sized pool. Please note that the plumbing ports might not be in the exact same spot as your old pump so you may have some minor re-plumbing.
What causes loss of primer and high pressure in the filter?
Hi, Vicki. A suction leak cause air to get into the lines can cause the issue that you're experiencing. You will need to check the pump o-rings and hose connections.
What is the expected power load from this pump in AMP/hours?
Hi Stephen, This pump draws 9 amps.
Earlier I asked for a recommendation on a replacement for a dynamo pool pump motor part # 340197. I go an answer of 1 h. p. 115V thru bolt motor BN25 which is just the motor. I am wanting to replace the motor and the other section that connects to it with the strainer basket. Please recommend which one I need.
Hi Lisa, The PL1501 is a great pump and would be a suitable replacement for the 340197 Dynamo Pump, the only caveat is that the plumbing ports on the PL1501 are not in the exact same position as the Dynamo pump. This means that you may have some re-plumbing. If you are using flexible hoses between your pool and pump as well as your pump and filter then this may not be an issue. If the plumbing being in the exact location as your old pump is important then I would suggest this 340197 Dynamo Pump as it is still be produced and the plumbing ports are located in the same spots as your current pump.
I have a 24ft. round 4ft. depth above ground pooI with a Waterway PH220-6, 2hp, 2 speed motor with a side discharge to my Waterway 808-0167.1008 filter. The high speed on the motor went out but the low speed is OK. I changed both the start and run capacitors to no avail. I'm guessing I need a new pump. Someone told me that I don't need such a large pump/motor. The pool should work fine with a single speed 1hp or at most a 1½hp pump/motor. What do you recommend for a new pump/motor.
I like the 1.5 HP PL1502 Pure Pro XL for a 24' round pool
Would I be able to rotate the discharge piece on the pump, due to my filter inlet is on the side? Thanks and have a great day Steve Tamalavic
Hi, the discharge port can be rotated so that you have a horizontal discharge. To do this you will need to permanently remove the Pool Pump Mounting Flange Key #15.

Hi, Randy. This pump can work with a 16'x48" Coleman using the proper connections.
I would like to buy this pool pump for my 18 ft above ground round pool but my existing pump has a horizontal outlet to the the cartrige filter housing this looks like a vertical outlet on this one would this pump work,

Yes a 1 horse power pump would be sufficient for a pool of that size.

Will this pump replace the E71-1 Speck Pump Thanks
You can replace with the PL1501, though it will not have the same flow rate as the E71-1. The E71-1 has a little higher flow rate compared to the PL1501. If that is alright for the system that you currently have than the PL1501 would be a good replacement.

can this pump be changed to a horizontal discharge?
Due to the molding on the housing of this pump, it cannot be modified to function as a side discharge pump.
My brother and I bought a pump and filter system from you on 4/28/16 - order #647092 - when our electrician put a new plug on the pump to accomodate our timer box he had turned the system on and when the timer started the pump ran dry - the pump sounds like it's struggling and not as quiet as advertised but it works well and the psi is 15 which I think is high - if I order a new pump will this pump fit the existing filter?
Hi Susan, This pump might be too strong for a 14" sand filter, the PureLine 3/4 hp (NE6150B) will be adequate.
Do you have a hose kit to install a sand filter with pump model 72729? And what's the part #?
Eb, Unfortunately, we do not have a hose kit for that model.
Does this pump have an off and on switch?
Hi Lisa, No this does not include an on/off switch we would suggest using an Intermatic Above Ground Pool Timer which allows you to set the on and off times for the pump. The timer can also act as an on/off switch.
Will this replace the dynamo 340197 pool pump?
Hi Tammie, This pump can replace the Dynamo Pump depending on the type of connecting from the pump to the filter. You may need the Buttress Adapter (417-4060).

Rick, Unfortunately, we do not have a variable speed pump for above ground pools.
I have a Summer Escapes pool and the pump just died on me. I need a "Summer Escapes F1000C 1000 GPH Filter Pump and Motor Assembly", but they run close to $200. Would this pump work? The only problem I see is that my current pump is designed to attach to the bottom of the skimmer and I don't know how I could do that with any other pump.
Hello, Unfortunately, this pump will not work with a Summer Escapes pool.
Would this pump work for a 27' X 54" above ground pool? Thank you
Yes this will properly circulate a 19,500 gallon pool.
Can I replace a proline model # sd-10-1n11cb with a Pureline part # PL1501
Hi Juliet, This pump can replace the Proline SD-10-1N11CB, however, the connects may be different depending on if you're using a pump to filter hose. You may need this Adpater-417-4161.
Need to replace a pro line PE 71 1.5 HP pump. Will this one be OK or do you have a similar 1.5 hp model?
Hi Tom, yes this should be fine as a replacement for a PE 71 1.5 HP pump. If you have flexible hose between the pump and filter then the plumbing should be straight forward. If you have rigid pvc between the pump and filter then you may have a bit of re-plumbing.
Hello. We have a 16 ft around and 4 ft deep Coleman pool. The pump is crapping out. It is a flowclear 90342. Would this pump be a good replacement? Is there anything else we would need to purchase to make it work?
Hi Dana, Yes this would be a good a replacement for your pump on your 16' round pool. It would be hard to say what fittings you may need to hook this up, could you send us a few photo's of your current pump and filter as this would help.
I have a proline sd10-1n11xb. Would the pureline 1 hp ne6170b be a good replacement? If not what would be the cheapest way to go? The pump is good but the motor is seized Thanks!
Hi Brian, The PureLine would be a good replacement but you may have a little re-plumbing to connect the hose from the pump to the filter.
Can the discharge of the pump be rotated? My pump is a side discharge
Hi Michael, For this pump we do not recommend these be altered to side discharge. We took one and tried it leaves a large gap on the side of the pump. If you need side discharge then I would suggest the Jacuzzi SLR Side Discharge Pump.
I currently have the Sta-rite JWPA5EL-242, would this be a good replacement pump? Thanks
Hi Jonelle, This pump can replace the Sta-Rite JWPA5EL-242 but it will you not be able to connect the pump to the filter. The 340197SR pump will be an exact replacement.
I have a pro line pump 1.5hp model pe71-11-h. I have a metal ring at propeller that seems to binds propeller is it a bearing Ring that came apart
Hi Lucas, The only part that you could be referring to is the pump Shaft Seal.
I have a 24ft. above ground pool. I was running a 2hp Proline pump (came with the pool when we bought the house a few years back). Pump is toast. Will this pump work as a replacement?? I suspect the 2hp may heva been a bit too strong for the pool size (?). Would a 1.5 hp pump work??
In our experience we have found that 1 HP pump is more then enough power to properly circulate a 24' above ground pool. The good thing about going down from 2 HP to 1 HP is that the cost of operation is much less on the 1 HP.
Will this replace the cheap pump on an intex 12'x24'x53" pool
Hi Shayne, The main problem would be the filter on the Intex Pool would not be able to handle the output of the pump. For an Intex Pool we would Suggest pairing this pump with a 16" Sand Filter
I currently have a Proline, 1.5HP, model PE71-II-V for my Above ground 18' pool. The hose that runs from my sand filter to the top of the pump has a nut that looks a bit like this: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352022577.htm If I buy this PureLine pump to replace the Proline (which is on it's way out), will I need to purchase one of these nuts to make sure the new PureLine pump fits the hose to my filter? If so, which one? Thanks! --Brian
Hi Brian, Most of the times that nut slides over the filter hose like this Filter Hose and Nut the female portion of the nut would thread right onto the the male thread of the PL1501 pump. You should not need to purchase a new nut as the ProLine uses a standard 1.5" female thread and the PureLine uses a standard 1.5" male thread.
Will this pump replace SPLA Pool model 72729?
Yes the PL1501 would replace the SPLA Pool model 72729.
i have a intex SF80110 sand filter pump. is this pump a good replacement and is the port size the same?
Joseph, Unfortunately this pump will be too powerful your Intex Sand Filter. If you would wanted to replace your pump and your filter then this pump along with this 16" Sand Filter would be a good option
will this replace a intex salt water pump 1/2 hp . the pool is 12x24 52inch deep
Hi Joseph, This filter could work with your Intex system with some slight re-plumbing. You would also want to make sure the flow rating listed on your filter which is normally stated as gallons per minute (GPM) is at least 60 GPM to be able to handle the output of the Pure Pro XL pump.
I have a Hayward SP1510-Z-XBC 1 HP. Is this a good replacement....older pump....new 24'x52" round pool above ground?

I have an Omega Splash pool 16 ft. round with a 150 lb. sand filter will this pump work on it?
Hi Rodney, The 1.5 Hp Above Ground Pool Pump would be too large for that size filter, I would recommend the 1 hp Above Ground Pool Pump (NE6150B).
we have an above ground pool since 2008 and the pump just died its a sta-rite 1.5 hp will this pump work
Yes this pump will work but if you have union connections from Sta Rite going from the pump to a Sta Rite filter then that will not work on that pump. You would need to use generic fittings and hoses.
I have a Hayward 1 1/2 HP Power-Flo Matrix Pool Pump that needs replacement for an 18' round above ground pool. Would this be a suitable replacement?
Shaun - Yes this would be a suitable replacement for 1 1/2 HP Power-Flo Matrix Pump. Be advised, however, it only is designed for top discharge. This pump cannot be adjusted for horizontal discharge.
Can this pump 1.5hp be used on a Coleman 16 ft round pool. I have a new sand filter that holds 100 lbs of sand? Just purchased pool and don't like the little cartridge filter it came with.
The 1.5 Hp Above Ground Pool Pump (NE6170B) can work on your Coleman 16' Round pool.
I have a above ground pond approx. 4020gals. I am looking to replace my pump with a new one and noticed that the one I have is very similar to a regular pool pump any difference ?
Above ground pool pumps are designed to only work from gravity fed water versus the inground style which do not need that. In essence you can use an inground model pool pump for an above ground pool but not the other way around.
does the discharge on this pump have threads on the inside as well as the outside?
Hello Gervin, yes the discharge does have threads on the inside and outside of the port.
Our Proline 1.5 hp above ground pool pump has died (Model PE71-II-H side discharge). Is this model a suitable replacement?
Sara, The 1.5 Hp Above Ground Pool Pump would not be a suitable replacement because the discharge can not be adjusted. You can replace it with the Speck E71 1 HP Single Speed Above Ground Pool Pump AG192-1100T-HST
Hi, I was given a 20'x12'x4' above ground pool. The motor for the pump doesnt work and Im not sure if I have to get the exact same one, STA-RITE brand or if I could get a different one. Ive tried looking up the model and serial #s, but I cant find anything on those. What type of pump will I need to look for? I want to make sure it has enough power. We do have a filter.
Hi Ashley for your sized pool I would suggest the 1 HP Jacuzzi SLR Above Ground Pool Pump, this pump would do a great job on your pool.
Hi, can this pump handle a 30' above ground pool?
Hi Fil, Yes this pump would be adequate for a 30' round above ground pool.
Will this pump work with a pac fab sand filter?
Hi Brittnee, As long as this is being used on an above ground pool then this pool pump will work with a Pac Fab Sand Filter.
Will this pump work with a Sta-rite filter
Hi Bruce, This pump would work with a Sta-Rite filter as long as it is being used on an above ground pool.
the port on this pool pump that sends the water to the filter looks to be straight up. my broken pump port sends the water to the left side. can you buy a pump like my broken one.
Yes we do carry a 1-1/2 HP Above Ground Pool Pump with Horizontal Discharge.
I think isnt it better to buy the whole thing that piece it and it will be easier and already put together..and would this model fit the same fitting so I don't have to replace the fittings can you check DYNII-N-I DYNAMO listed 227T got it off the pump..Would it be better too just get all new and use old parts as back up parts odl parts work only broke off drain piece broke wont hold twist on clear lid
Debbie- The NE6170B, will not match up with the dynamo. The plumbing and size of the pumps will be different , along with all the parts and fittings.
what is the GPM of this pump
The gpm rating is based of the feet of head your pump has. The NE6170B (BC2730) will do about 90 gpm at 20 feet of head.
what type of switch does it have or do you just plug it in and unplug to turn on and off?
This pump does not have a switch but you could use our Above Ground Pool Pump Timer to automate when the pump turns on and off. You can also use the timer as a manual on/off switch.
Does the side discharge rotate to match the filter cartridge?
Unfortunately the housing does not rotate on the NE6170B pump. If you need a pump with a housing that rotates, you would need the Hayward Matrix: http://www.inyopools.com/search_matrix.aspx?Keywords=matrix
I currently have a side discharge pump. Can the pump be rotated 90 degrees, making it a side discharge?
Unfortunately, this pump does not have the ability to turn sideways to make the discharge a side discharge.
Can this be wired to 240?
Unfortunately, this pump only works for 115v.
Is all I need to do is add hoses to each end and put them in the water to make it go?
You would also require a filter, the system would work as follows.... Pump with hose back to pool skimmer, hose between pump and sand filter and then a hose from sand filter back to the return wall jet on pool. If you already have this set up then you could just replace your pump whith this pump here. If you need the entire system which includes the pump, sand filter and hoses then you would require this complete pool pump & filter system
Does this pump meet California code for pool pumps?
California law will vary but most codes require any pump over 1HP to be a dual speed or variable speed. For a 15,000 gallon above ground pool, I would recommend a 1.5 HP dual speed pump: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/02200001004959.htm
Less than 1 hr
Screwdriver, Pliers, teflon thread tape
I shut off old pump, set filter valve to "Closed/Winter", put a Gizzmo style plug in the skimmer basket. Using a screwdriver, I loosened the pipe clamps for the intake and filter hoses. I removed the lid from the top of the filter basket, then removed the drain plug to let the water out. Then I took off the hoses and moved the old pump out of the way. Using channel-lock pliers I loosened the fittings from the old pump and removed them. I dried them off and wrapped 4-6 turns of teflon tape to the threads, then screwed them in hand-tight to the new pump. Placed new pump in position, then reattached hoses and tightened hose clamps. Turned filter back to "Filter", removed plug from skimmer, and let pump basket fill before attaching lid. Turned on pump and checked for leaks.

I initially was shopping for a replacement for my Hayward Flowmax pump when I saw this pump recommended at the bottom of the page. I read the veiws and decided to give it a try. If the pump was below average I would get it replaced. I got the pump and installed it after switching the discharge to the side to link up with my D.E. Filter. The process took more time than installing the pump on the base. However after I connected everything I am happy. The old pump leaked and was slow and this pump is powerful and very quiet. I am very pleased.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great little pump!

Pros: inexpensive and powerful
Cons: rear plate should be ventilated
after a few weeks of replacing my Hayward 1.5hp Maxi Flo with this Sandman, I find I am still completely satisfied with it. She's quite yet powerful enough to do the job!
(4 out of 5 stars) Great working pump

Very quiet working pimp. Every bit as good as the name brand pumps just as efficient. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that there is no on off switch. I will be getting myself a plug in timer so I don't have to pull out the plug to shut the pump off while I switch my filter positions.
(5 out of 5 stars) easy fix

My pool pump went out on a Sunday, went online to inyopool and had new pump at my house on Wed. afternoon. Took 10 mins to attach fittings and hoses and my pool was up and running. Thanks for the quick shipment and quite motor

I recently bought this pump for my pool. I could not be more satisfied. The price was great. The shipping was amazing and the item was received within a couple of days. Installation was quick. Highly recommended.
