Variable Speed V-Green 165 Pool Pump Replacement Motor

The V-Green 165 variable speed motor joins a growing Century lineup of premium efficiency ECM replacement pump motors. Fully featured, the V-Green 165 incorporates durable TEFC construction with ECM technology to deliver premium energy efficiency from 40 percent to 80 percent versus a standard single speed motor. Now energy conscious pool owners have an affordable replacement pump motor option that delivers the performance they demand with the programming flexibility they desire.

The V-Green 165 offers three variable speeds programmable from 600 to 3450 RPM, allowing users to easily identify and set the appropriate speeds to minimize energy consumption and lower the overall cost of pool ownership all while maintaining the proper pool environment. Pool size, the presence of additional water features, chemical maintenance needs, and environmental factors will impact the equation with every pool having unique requirements. The programming flexibility offered by the V-Green 165 makes it possible for pool owners to easily identify and adjust speed and duration settings necessary to maintain their pools and to maximize energy savings.

Available in both square flange and C-face configurations, the highly versatile V-Green 165 motor can be utilized in pool pump applications ranging from 1/2 to 1.65 total horsepower. Installation on most pumps regardless of manufacturer is as simple as replacing a standard single speed motor, with no additional wiring or plumbing required thanks to the V-Green motor’s integrated user interface. Equipped with digital inputs, the V-Green 165 motor is even compatible with third party pool automation systems.

My motor is a AO smith B231SE. Can I use this motor to replace the 2.5 HP one? Do I also have to change the impeller for 1.65 HP? My pool is 1.9K gallon I don't need the 2.5HP.
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/24/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

As long as the total dynamic head matches well with a 1.65 VS motor then yes you could and you would need to change the impeller. However, we usually recommend matching or slightly exceed the total horsepower as the original pool builder likely already calculated the TDH and learned that model motor was needed for your application. You can view this guide to calculate if you would like.

If I currently have a 1HP C48K2N143 and I replace with the ECM16CU a 1.65HP motor, should I replace the 1HP Impeller in the pump with a 1.5HP Impeller like the SPX2610C
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/19/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard. You do not want to replace the impeller to the 1.5 HP - SP2610C until you're able to confirm that your system is able to handle the increase water flow. This motor will operate fine using your current impeller. 
 Reply


?     Asked on 7/19/2019 by Richard Chalmers

I believe the ECM16CU is the correct match judging from all the other inquiries. But it never hurts to ask. I believe my motor is SP-1607-Z1-M, and the Model is C48K2N143. I say believe because the label is so worn out, so I would ask if the model number matches the type listed above. It is a 1HP and has a SF of 1.1 and it is of course a 56J frame. I have replaced the bearings twice in the last 20 years, but think I would like the efficiency of a variable speed. I have included a picture.

Yes, the ECM16CU is the correct replacement motor for your B228SE - 1 HP Round Flange 56J Frame. The impeller would not need to be replaced unless it is broken but you would need to replace the shaft seal to complete your motor installation.

Hi there, I need a replacement for my 1.5HP Century USN1152 pump. It looks like a round flange type. Although it says it's efficient and I can get a direct replacement it might make more sense to get the variable speed pump for a bit more money. In that case is this a good direct replacement as far as wiring and fitting to the housing? thanks

Actually, you would need to use a model ECM27SQU. Just keep in mind that this one has a 48 frame so it may not rest on the pump base the same way that your current one does. You may need to customize your base or if the model permits change the base foot/boot.

I have an AO Smith B2983 1.5HP two speed pump that is making a racket and will probably die soon. Would this variable speed pump be the correct replacement?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/26/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello, based off of your current motor, you will need to go with the ECM27SQU. Please be advised that this motor has a smaller bore than your current motor and something would have to be placed underneath so that it is not hanging in the air. When you install this motor, you will also need to replace your shaft seal, which is determined by the model of your pump, not the motor.

I have a 1.5 HP ST1152 with a 56J frame Replacement Pool Motor and needs to be replaced. I would like to replace it with the 1.65HP VS motor will it work? and not sure if it is a 115 or 230 v wiring. Need advice and what parts to order.
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/2/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Since the total horsepower on your motor is 2.25 then you would need variable speed motor model ECM27CU which is standard 230 volt. If you have a double breaker running power to your motor then you have 230 volt.

Hallo, I made the mistake by thinking „bigger is better“. Last year I replaced a ¾ hp with a 1.5 hp. Which almost doubled my power bill. Now, I am thinking of replacing the Hayward/Century motor with a variable speed motor. The pump model is Hayward Model SP2610X15, the motor is a Century HP 1 ½ Model # C48L2N134B1 which motor do you suggest? Will the ECM 16CU work for me? Thank you

My concern here is my current pool pump turns the power on at a set time every day. I would like to keep that simple feature. It looks like I would have to go outside every day and press the start key in order for the pump to turn on. This doesn't seem right to me. Can someone confirm if my intermatic timer will continue to work with this motor and keep the desired running time along with the preset RPM everyday?

Yes with this model you can still use the timer and within those hours, program how you would like to set your RPM intervals.

I am considering the ECM16CU to replace my 1 HP motor on an older Jandy Stealth (JHP) pump. Is this motor compatible with my pump? Do I need to replace the pump impeller since it is rated at 1 HP? Is the variable speed motor compatible with my Jandy AquaLink RS Controller? What kit do you recommend to service and replace the pump seals and O-rings? Thank you.
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/23/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

Hello Bob, the ECM16CU would work on the Jandy Stealth Original (2006 and Prior) JHP & JHPU. You would not need to change the impeller and the seals needed when you change the motor would be GOKIT77. The motor would need to add the V-Green Automation Adapter Kit - 2517501-001. With the addition of Century’s new automation adapter (kit #2517501-001) the VGreen 270 can now be installed where third party pool automation systems already exist.

I just received mine in the mail yesterday, have it all hooked up and it is super quiet. My question is, on my Intermatic timer that I'm tied into, should I pull the start and stop tabs? I'm having a hard time understanding step 12 and three for the timing. I've watched your video on YouTube, and I'm still little confused. When starting at step one, is that the time every day that the motor will start?
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/8/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gary. The ECM16CU motor does not have a true built-in timer so you would have to set the start/stop time at your Intermatic timer.  The start time would be STEP 1 and the stop time would conclude at the end of STEP 3. So if your total run time equal 12 hours you would set time Intermatic timer to start at 8 am and turn off at 8 pm.

The V-Green 165 will always run the PRIMING sequence when starting from the OFF state, except when starting in OVERRIDE. The factory Prime settings are 2600 RPM for three (3) minutes.  The START event will be stored in the controller. Should a power outage occur, the V-Green 165 will automatically re-start at STEP 1 when power is restored. Please click here to review the V-Green 165 Motor Owners Manual for further details.

Hi Tom, The A.O. Smith 2.7 HP Round Flange Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor (ECM27CU) would be the more suitable replacement for the ST1152 motor.

What are my options for replacing 1 hp Hayward super pump motor C48K2N143B1. Energy efficiency and reliability are top priority.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/17/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

There are a few options on replaceing this motor with other more energy efficient models. There is the single speed energy efficient model being the UCT1102, the dual speed model being the B973T, and the the variable speed model ECM16CU. For this last model you would need to change the impeller, possibly the diffuser and lastly would need to make sure that the filter is compatible with the added pressure. The pump and filter model would be needed to confirm whether the pump parts will need to be replaced as well as if the filter is compatible.

how to reset the speeds on the ECM16CU motor
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/1/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

The V-Green 165 user interface has a “Reset to Factory Defaults” feature to restore the schedule settings back to the original values programmed at the factory. The user must press and hold the STOP and OVERRIDE buttons for three (3) seconds to reset the settings back to factory defaults. All of the UI bar graph LED’s will flash three (3) times to confirm the settings were restored to factory defaults

I have a hydramax II 1.5 hp motor.Can I assume the ECM65CU round flange will give equivalent performance or better at 1.65 hp
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/31/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Jim, You can expect the same performance at 3450 rpm's . Anything lower will reduce the watwer flow thus the energy savings.

I just purchased a v-green 165 motor. The instructions for the 270 are very clear on how to wire it to my SWG so it will only come on at a set time with a set flow rate. I do not see this info for the 165 controller. Any suggestions? My current controller is all analog. I guess I could wire my SWG on a separate timer, but I would prefer to set it up like described on the 270 (direct from the controller on the motor)
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/25/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Ken - The 165 does not have the auxiliary like the 270. We spoke with the Century rep and he said the best thing you can do is just wire the 165 and your SWG to the timer. That way they will both come on and turn off at the same time. The 165 will still hold it's programming (bubble memory) so it will run in the set speed when it does turn on.

Motor gone on Hayward Super pump

Written on 11/5/2018 by Guest

We had severe thunderstorms and my pump motor took the hit from a power surge. So after doing some research and finding out that I can't just replace it with a simple replacement motor since I live in California and need a 2 speed or variable speed motor. This was my only option to replace that was at least affordable since the pump is only 5 years old and the seals were just replaced at the beginning of the summer.

Removing the old motor was simple, just remove the four bolts then remove the impeller and the rest of the housing. All pieces went back on in reverse order from how they came off and was really easy going back on. I did have a few issues trying to get the programming to stay, but did a factory default reset and seems to be working pretty well and the motor is really quiet.

No problems

Written on 12/16/2016 by Guest

No problems installing. I did have to find a YouTube video to figure out how to disassemble the Hayward super pump that I had. It was actually very easy. The V green 165 does come with a user manual, but it doesn't tell you anything about installation. The Way the V green 165 was packaged, almost seemed like it's strictly for professionals in the industry who know what they're doing. But like I said, I was able to find a YouTube video and it went right in with no problems. The pump is super quiet, and I like the flexibility of the variable speed. I'm just now figuring out a week later how to tweak the different settings. The only thing I don't like about it, is I can't use it with my Intermatic timer, because when the timer switches on, it doesn't turn the pool pump on. I wish there was a built-in timer within the pump, but I guess that's why you need to buy the interface. All in all, I'm extremely happy with my purchase.
