Product Description

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.

I have an older Pentair Pinnacle (part # 342351) pump for a 10,000 gallon saltwater pool. I'd like to upgrade the motor to a variable speed but only saw info on the newer Superflo pumps. First question, can I use this V-Green 1.65hp motor w/ my current pump? Second question, I assume I'd have to upgrade the impeller, diffuser and shaft seal? If so, are these the correct part #'s... Diffuser: 5003-10; Impeller: 5002-05CA; Heavy Duty Shaft Seal: 5250-210; also the Tune Up Kit: GOKIT78. Thanks!

 Reply

A  Answered on 12/16/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi KC, yes this would be the correct variable speed motor. You do not necessarily need to replace the diffuser and impeller unless you need to get the full 1.6 hp out of the variable speed motor. If so, then yes this is the correct diffuser and you would not need another impeller. The seal kit GOKIT24 has all of the seals and gaskets needed.

Hi. I have a Challenger CHII-N1-2A pump, with a Century B855 motor. My pool is 18K gal. The water feature and pool cleaner have their own pumps. Will this VS motor work with my Challenger pump or do I need to get the 2.7HP one? That seems like too much HP. If I get this 1.65 VS motor, will I need a new impeller and diffuser? Thanks.
 Reply

A  Answered on 12/17/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Ashish, the correct variable speed replacement motor for the motor catalog number B855 is the ECM27SQU. You can dial down the RPM on this motor if need be and do not need to change the impeller and diffuser as you should not need the maximum 2.7 hp from the motor.

    Yes, the current electrical setup is 230V. My current pump motor is only 1.25 hp.....ECM16SQU shows as 1.65 hp. Would that extra hp be a problem or would just running at the programmed reduced RPM's be ok? Any chance you have a variable speed motor that is 1.25 hp?

So you would actually be losing horsepower with the ECM16SQU so the ECM27SQU would both match and exceed what you currently have. Losing horsepower may not pull and move water the way your pool needs.

I replaced my Jandy stealth single speed pump with a Jandy epump variable speed pump just under 3 years ago. The epump motor has since stopped working. I believe the stealth was 1.5 hp while the epump is definitely 2.7 hp. I am not sure why the pool company increased the hp. If i originally had 1.5 hp can I go back to 1.5 hp and should I? I have read that the higher hp can damage my pool equipment. I need to verify all of this understanding with previous photos.
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/3/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Max, We would suggest going back to the 1.5 HP however if the pool company replaced the impeller to a 2.7 HP impeller when they replaced the motor then you will need to replace your impeller with the 1.5 HP impeller. You would require this 1.65 Variable Speed Motor and this 1.5 HP Impeller Kit Please note if you have an automated control system like the Jandy AquaLink then you would not be able to control the speeds of the pump from your indoor controller. All of the programming is done on the on-board controller of the motor. The automation system would just power the pump on and off and the programming you set on the motor controller would take over from there. When replacing your motor you will also need this Jandy Stealth Shaft Seal.

      Hi Paul, Its hard for me to tell if you have a Whisperflo or Superflo pump. Your photo shows a label on the white plastic housing, if that label says Whisperflo or has part #'s starting with WF- then you will need this Whisperflo Seal Kit and if that label says Superflo or has part #'s starting with SF- then you will need this Superflo Seal Kit

Hi Salvador, This 1.65 HP Variable Speed Replacement Motor. Here is an article we wrote on the Energy Savings of a Single Speed Pool Pump Vs. a Variable Speed Pool Pump. If you wanted to take advantage of the higher speeds of the Variable Speed motor then I would suggest upgrading to this 1-1/2 HP Whisperflo Impeller.

Hi Christopher, for us to suggest the proper seal kit could you send a photo of a wide shot of your complete pool pump to show the pipes going in and out of the pump? Also the model number and the serial number of the pump? You do not necessarily need to upgrade the impeller unless you need to get the full strength out of the motor.

A  Answered on 4/28/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi, You would do all of the programming for the speeds on the V-Green directly on the controller of the V-Green motor and then the Aqua Plus can be set to turn the V-Green on and off and once turned on the programming settings from the V-Green would take over from there. If you wanted to change the speed of the pump that cannot be done from the Aqua Plus and that would be done directly on the V-Green controller.

I have a Pentair 342001 Pool Pump with a noisy motor bearing. The Pentair motor number is 353134s. I have been told that the motor is not repairable to replace the bearing. Also I came across a Century motor number EPA16SQ as a possible replacement, is this same as the above on your website. Also I saw on your website there was instructions for replacing the motor bearing, is this possible on the variable speed motor? I am located in Cape Coral.

Hi, William. Replacing bearing in a variable speed motor like the one you have is not easy and requires special tools, unlike a traditional motor. You can use this ECM16SQU or the EPA16SQ motor as a replacement.

Hello, I have a WhisperFlo WFE-8, 2hp SF 1.30. I'd like to change the motor V-Green 1.65 HP. Will this motor work in this pump? or what do I need to change to make it work? Thanks

I posed a question earlier today regarding the pump starting prior to the normal 24 hour timer. In reviewing the manual, I noticed that the motor has a 'freeze protection' mode. Our temps dropped to below 39 degrees last night and assuming that's why the motor started. Thanks -
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/18/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

In the event that the outside air temperature drops below a set threshold, the V-Green 165 will automatically turn on (assuming the START button has been pressed) and circulate the pool water. The Freeze Protection will run according to the following conditions (utilizing the factory default settings): Freeze Protection turn ON temperature = 39°F Freeze Protection Duration = 8 Hours

Hi, I've had this exact motor for 3 seasons, starting the 4th season now. Just today, the pump started over 2 hours early. The internal 24 hour timer has always worked perfectly, but for some reason it didn't today. This is a concern as I have a booster pump in series on a mechanical timer for my Polaris which requires the main pump to be on. Any idea on why this might have occurred and how I can make sure that it doesn't happen again? There were no power outages either. Thank you
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/16/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Steve M.

Hi, Tony. This motor will only run when power from the external timer is applied. So if it starts pre-maturely, then the issue will be the timer, not the motor.
 Reply

  • Commented on 5/16/2019 by Product Owner

    I determined the motor started prematurely due to the outside temperature falling below 39 degrees.. The motor has an anti-freeze setting that turns the motor on when the temp falls below a preset to prevent freeze ups. And my motor timer is disabled since this motor has its own internal timer.

I recently purchased this VS motor for my WF-28 pump, as per INYO recommendation, to replace my old SS motor. I am having a problem with the impeller binding up on the motor shaft when the unit tries to run. The motor runs for about 5 secs then stops. The impeller is torqued so tightly it takes me holding the impeller while someone else uses the 5/16th allen with a torque bar on the motor to break it free. Once the impeller is loose, the motor spins freely. What am I missing? Images to come.
