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.

Product FAQs


Q:Can I replace my 1.5HP motor with a 1HP?

A:Yes. You can downgrade the motor. You will also have to downgrade the impeller, diffuser and eye seal (if applicable) as well.


Q: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: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.


Q:I need a pump for an outdoor garden system. I don't want to filter the water as I want all nutrients flushed through my planting bed. Can I run a pool pump without a filter so I can achieve this? Thanks.

A:You can use a >pool pump for quite a few different applications as long as there is enough water to "feed" the pump. You will want to pay attention to the flow rate of the pump (gallons per minute). You do not need a filter in order to use it. Please note that while the pump strainer basket will help catch moderate-large sized debris, smaller debris will pass and may lodge itself by the impeller. The type of pool pump you will need will be dependent upon your  application. An above ground pool pump needs to be installed below the water surface and an inground pool pump needs to be installed above the water surface. The warranty may/may not be affected and it's a good idea to contact the manufacturer to find out.


Q:What parts on my pool pump can I replace before I have to buy a new pump?

A:You can extend the life of your pump 10 or 20 years by replacing worn parts. These include the motor and motor shaft seal, 3 gaskets, the strainer basket and cover, the impeller and diffuser. Click our guide on "How a Pool Pump Works" to see where these parts are located in a typical motor. See our other pump guides for step-by-step procedures on replacing these parts.


Q:How do I check my pool pump's impeller to see if its bad?

A:Your pump's impeller may be cracked or worn and wobbling or just clogged. To look at or replace your impeller see our guide on "How to Replace a Pool Pump Impeller". For information on how a pump works, see our guide on "How a Pool Pump Works".


Q:How do I change the shaft seal on my pool pump?

A:Changing the >shaft seal is quite simple. Here's > >How To Replace a Pool Motor Shaft Seal.


Q:How do I change the motor on my pool pump?

A:Changing the motor on a pool pump is not that difficult. Here's a video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor. In addition to the video you can read our step by step guide here  Make certain that you purchase the correct shaft seal or Gokit to go with your new motor.


Q:I have a leaking pool pump that seems to be getting louder when it turns on. I made sure everything is clear inside of the basket. How do I know it's just the motor? Please help.

A:If you have a leak, it is more than likely caused by a failed shaft seal. Once the shaft seal fails water is able to enter the motor body and cause damage to the bearings. Typically it will cause the motor to run louder than normal and the motor will eventually fail. Your most cost effective option would be to replace the motor and the surrounding seals/gaskets. You can purchase the >shaft seal alone, but it is recommended you purchase a  >GoKit. A Gokit contains the shaft seal, housing gasket, lid gasket, diffuser gasket and non petroleum based lubrication.


Q:I'm trying to replace the motor on my pool pump but all these numbers and abbreviations on the motor label are really confusing me. What do they mean?

A:Replacing a pool pump motor is not as difficult as it seems. You can try looking >here >  >if you need help figuring out what the information on your label means. If you are still having difficulty figuring it out you can call us at our toll free number or you can send us a photo of your motor label >here.


Q:Are all Hayward Tristar Pumps considered variable speed?

A:>No, The only variable speed TriStar pump is model#: SP322063EEV. This pump requires either the SP3220VSC - TriStar Energy Solution Control stand alone control, or the SP3220VSCAQL - TriStar Energy Solution Control for Pro Logic


Q:What are the amps at high speed and low speed? Also, does the pump have a plug and how long is the cord?

A: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.


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

A: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.

   (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.
