Product Description

Power-Flo Matrix Above-Ground Pump Series

The Big news in above-ground pumps is the PowerFlo Matrix by Hayward. It features an industrial-size strainer basket to collect a lot of debris without a lot of maintenance.

The high-quality Noryl impeller offers wide openings to prevent leaf and debris clog. While this pump is impressively equipped, the PowerFlo Matrix is also very efficient. It has a heat-resistant, double-size seal and a protected rear-mounted switch for high-energy efficiency. Plus, its heavy-duty, high-performance motor provides years of trouble-free operation thanks to an integrated automatic thermal overload protector. PowerFlow Matrix clearly the superior choice in above-ground-pool pumps.

The Power-Flo Matrix has been engineered as a uniquely superior above-ground pool pump. With a single push of a button, this truly versatile pump changes from a veritical to a horizontal discharge and back again. Its large profile and integrated styling makes the Power-Flo Matrix a swimming pool pump like no other.

Asked on 04/08/2016 by Hank

I am replacing my old Sta-rite pump that has burned out. It was a JWPS5FL-A2. I am using a Sta-rite sand filter T-210WF. 2.18, 44 gpm,20, 50 psi, 200lbs sand. I have ordered a Hayward Matrix Powerflo 1.5 dual speed pump as a replacement. My pool is 46x18 oval at 52 high. I am trying to go with this pump due to the energy savings and looking at solar. All my pluming is hard piped. I have a Union on the pump to filter line for easier repair or replacement. Is this a good match or will it work ok?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 04/09/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Hank, The Hayward SP15932S model pump is a good replacement pump. I'm not certain if the hose with connector will match up if not you will need the MPT to Buttress Adapter.

I have a 42ft x 22ft oval with 52in walls. Will this 1.5 hp pump be sufficient or do I need a 2hp?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 03/30/2016 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Chris, This 1.5 HP pump would be sufficient for a pool your size depending on your size filter and desire run time.


Asked on 10/11/2015 by Al

I am replacing my 1.5 HP broken pump with a Hayward pump. Given that I have a small size pool (in the order of 15,000 gallons), feeding Hayward star clear plus filter system C12002. I have both intake and discharge to be 2 inches. The 1.5 hp Hayward pumps are all 1.5" intake and discharge. There s 2 hp pump with 2" requirement fulfilled but it sounds too much. What do you suggest ?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/13/2015 by Product Specialist Hector F.

With a C12002 model filter you do not want to go any stronger on your motor for that is too much pressure. Though the ports are 1.5 inches on that pump you can still install it with 2 inch lines. You just need reducer fittings to install.


Asked on 09/06/2015 by Aidan

Is this pump single phase or 3 phase?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 09/07/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Aidan, The Hayward Matrix Pump 1.5 HP Dual Speed is a single phase pump, a 3 phase model is not available.


Asked on 08/07/2015 by Joe

I came home today and turned on the pool pump Hayward model SP15932S it just makes a humming sound on either speed. It was working fine when I turned it off this morning do you think it's the motor or that the pump impeller may have jammed somehow?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 08/08/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Joe, You can take apart the pump and inspect it but it sounds like the motor capacitor or entire motor needs to be replaced. You can view our blog on Pool Motor Troubleshooting for more detail info.


Asked on 07/08/2015 by Mark Kassel

My pump died on a 24ft above ground pool. Filter on pool i previously upgraded to Hayward S180t, however at that time i did not replace the original waterway 1hp pump unit. From reading online I find that a Hayward 1.5hp pump is what the replacement should be. Question I have is why would I want a 2 speed vs a 1 speed, it appears Hayward makes this setup in either or speed.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/10/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Mark, A dual speed pump will allow operate your pool on a lower speed to save on energy cost, you will have to have the pump run longer but you will save on energy versus a single speed pump.

Need to replace my Sta-Rite Model JWPAS5F-2A4 pump and motor (motor model S48B74A03 HP 1.5 with 2" inflow and discharge. Is this pump and motor a good replacement? Can I get it with 2" rather then 1.5" intake?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/04/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

I would actually suggest the Sta-Rite Dynamo Pump here as it is very similar to your JWPA pump which will mean the plumbing will be easier. The Dynamo pump does have 1-1/2" ports but we do carry 1-1/2" x 2" unions which would easily adapt this pump for 2" plumbing.


Asked on 05/21/2015 by Jose

Currently the Hayward on now not working, it is a 2HP, should I remain 2HP or can I use a 1.5HP?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/21/2015 by Product Specialist Wes B.

Jose, If you're current pool pump is a 2 hp you should replace it with a 2 hp. You do not want to run into complications with the pool if the 1 1/2 hp is not strong enough.

Asked on 12/06/2014 by Trevor

How does the pump switch speeds? Does it require a specific controller that is not included?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 12/08/2014 by Product Specialist Brian M.

Hello Trevor - On the back of the motor there is a 3 way toggle switch for high / low. It is a manual operation , but does not require a special timer mechanism.

The amps are 16.4 on the high speed and 4.4 on the low speed. The cord is 6' long and has a 3-prong plug.


Asked on 07/04/2006 by Guest

What is the voltage on this unit? How long is the manufactures warranty? If the system requires repairs during warranty, what do I do?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 07/04/2006 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

This pump runs on 115V power. This unit comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. If the pump needed repair, you would call Hayward directly and they would put you in touch with a warranty service station in your area.

Reviewed By: from Pataskala, OH ()

Pros: Quiet and energy efficient,

Replaced Sta-rite single speed with this 2 speed pump, had to replace union for new pump, but easy to do, installation was easy. NEW Hayward pump works great, switches form low to high speed very quick and easy. Will save you money.

   (4 out of 5 Stars) Good quality product.

Reviewed By: from Rices Landing ,PA ()

Pros: Much Improved design over older models.Motor runs cooler than previous pump.

Cons: Motor seems to have slightly less power than the older pump motor.

I purchased this pump as a replacement for a previous Hayward pump that i have had for 12 years.It was very easy to install and attach to my existing filter.Pump seems to be made very well and the quality is very good.The power switch and pumps design is much improved over my old pump.The motor seems to be not as strong as my older model,but it doesn't get as hot as the older model,which in my opinion is a good trade off.I expect to get 10 years or more,reliable service from this pump.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Hayward Matrix 1.5HP dual speed

Reviewed By: from Attleboro, MA ()

Excellent pump. INYO service is excellent as well. First pump arrived damaged. After a few conversations and emails a new one was shipped and received in perfect condition. INYO was very easy to deal with. Pump is powerful and quiet. Low speed pumps fairly high volume and only consumes 2.9amps. Very user friendly. Only complaint is the bulkhead fitting that connects the pump outlet is 2.5"FPT rather than 3" which is far more standard. Since this is a pressureized connection it was a bit of fussing to get this connection adapted. However, I wouldn't hold this against Hayward... and in no way does it reduce my satisfaction with this product.

Bought this as a replacement for a cheap Emerson. It's quiet, 2 speed which I got used to and can't live w/o. Makes back-flushing and rinsing a 30 second job. Super pump and an outstanding deal.
