  • All Pentair, Pac-Fab & Purex Pumps 1/2 HP - 3 HP single and dual speed models.
  • All WF, WFE & WFDS Series Pumps

Tune Up Kit Includes:

The impeller is listed as key 17 on this Intelliflo parts diagram. We do recommend replacing any apparent pump parts that are worn or damaged but if would like us to be sure then please send a few images of the pump and its damaged or worn parts to upload@inyopools.com.

What's the difference between the GOKIT32 and the GOKIT5? I am purchasing a Pentair Challenger 1.5HP Full Rated (B2842) Motor and want the correct seal kit.

A  Answered on 5/7/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, David. The GOKIT32 is for a Whisperflo Pump and GOKIT5 is for a Challenger Pump (High Pressure). The B2842 is the motor number which can be used on several different pumps. If you can provide us with the model number of the Challenger pump that you have we can confirm if GOKIT5 is the correct kit.

I ordered 3/4 hp square flange motor. Is this the kit for the motor shaft and pump impeller?

A  Answered on 3/20/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello Waylon- The seals are based off of the pump not the motor. We would need to know what the model of your pump is to find the right seals for you.

I think I found the right replacement motor for the Pentair Super Flo High Performance Pump (Motor # 196237) Part # 340037 Model SF N1-3/4A It's the Century B2847. 56Y. What tune up kit do I use since you don't list Super Flo only Whisper Flo ? Please let me know if I have the right Motor, Also is there an EE model for better efficiency.

A  Answered on 6/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The energy efficient replacement is part number B661 and the seals that I'll need are part numbers 5003-04 and 5250-104. If you need any other parts here's a link to the parts diagram.

?     Asked on 6/17/2016 by steve

I have a Pentair WF-26 , 011773 pump. The intake valve was left closed from a cleaning and the pump ran 8 hours dry. The pump works but seems like it is making a lot more noise. Is it likely that the pump was damaged and if so, any recommendations on parts that would be needed to rebuild the pump? I did not find a new pump without the motor as a part on the web site. Is that available and if so, how much? Thanks

A  Answered on 6/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Steve, many times when this happens the motor can get extremely hot actually warping the pump housing and damaging the motor. My suggestion would be a complete new Pentair Whisperflo WF-26 011773 Pump. You could keep your old pump for spare parts if you ever needed them.

Will the tune up kit for the whisper flow fit a super flow?

A  Answered on 4/25/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Those seals and gaskets are different from each other.

I have an older Wisperflo Pool Pump and need to replace the motor and all gaskets. Do you have a GOKIT32-SALT gasket set for salt water pools?

A  Answered on 10/20/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Click the link >Pentair/Purex Whisperflo Tune Up Kit (GOKIT32SALT)<, it will direct you to the kit for salt water pools.

?     Asked on 1/8/2015 by alex zuniga

Why doesn't this kit come with bearings?

A  Answered on 1/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Alex,  The GOKIT32 is specifically made for the "wet-end" of the pump not the motor.  The bearings are specific to the motor not just the pump model. We can try to match the bearing based on the model number or the size of the bearings.

My pump is not priming even after cleaning impeller. Will purchasing this kit aid in fixing that problem?

A  Answered on 10/15/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The seal kit can help with loss of prime. I can't guarantee that it will solve your problem. The loss of prime could be from an air leak at the valves or plumbing in front of the pump.

?     Asked on 2/16/2012 by Guest

I just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?

A  Answered on 2/16/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.

I recently changed my pool motor and gaskets. I made sure to lubricate all the gaskets with vaseline. A few days later water is leaking from the pump. What did I do wrong? Help please!!

A  Answered on 2/13/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

You never want to use vaseline on any rubber gaskets or o-rings. Vaseline is petroleum based and will deteriorate the rubber quickly. Whenever you change the motor on a pool pump it is recommended that you replace the gaskets and shaft seal as well. A >Go-kit contains the shaft seal, packet of non-petroleum based lubricant and gaskets you will need for your pump. If you already have the gaskets, you can purchase >Magic Lube.
