I have a 1.5 HP Pentair WhisperFlo what do you recommend
Hi, Tony. You're able to use this Tristar VS Variable Speed Pump - SP3202VSP as a suitable replacement for a Whisperflo 1.5HP Up Rate Pump.
how many hp is this
The high HP on this pump is 1.5 HP Up Rated or 1 HP Full Rated.
I have a shaft seal leak on a 1 HP, Pentair single speed pump. I have several questions about this. 1. Should I repair or replace with a new variable speed pump ? 2. Should I stay Pentair or switch to Hayward or even to Jandy ? 3. The pool is a salt pool, about 12,000 gallons. I was told that variable speed pumps can also increase the life of your salt cell ?? Thanks, Bob
Hi Bob, If it were me I would replace with a variable speed motor and keep your Pentair pump housing. Typically a Pentair pump will use the Century ECM16SQU Variable Speed 1.65 HP Replacement Motor if you could email us a few photos of your current pump we could let you know if you need to replace any other parts, please email those to firstname.lastname@example.org I have not heard that a variable speed pump will extend the life of your salt cell.
I am completing a just less than 10000 gallon in ground lap pool with 9 solar heating panels 12 feet above ground. Would this pump be appropriate for this application provided I buy the correct filter.
If you upgrade to a prologic controler later, can you run a SP3200VSP the same as a SP3200VSPND
Yes, if you upgrade to a Prologic, Aqualogic or the Omnilogic Hayward control systems they will all be able to control the Tristar VS or ECO VS pumps.
I need to know how to manually start the pump and let it run until I want to turn it off. I know about the Quick Clean (only 60 min) but it's not long enough when I'm using the spa. There has to be a way to turn it on high and leave it on? Thank you for your help.
Here is a link to the Hayward Tristar VS Variable Speed Pump Owner's Manual. The pre-set speed settings 1-4 will run the pump at the default speeds (unless they have been programmed for different speeds) and would not turn off (unless the speeds settings are programmed for a selected run time). Please review the manual for additional information, if necessary. Thank you for the question!
Hi, would this be enough to replace hayward pump (model k63cxepz) 1.5 HP SF 1.3 and 3450 rpm ? current pool info: 400,000 btu raypak heater (1 year old) 25k gallon in ground pool hayward sand filter: 4.9 ft2 with 98 GPM max rate for backwash and filtration no spa or any water features 1 return, 3 intakes thanks
Hi, Will. If you can provide the model number of the Hayward Pump you currently have we can make a comparison to find out if the TriStar VS Pump is a suitable replacement.
Replacing existing bad norstar pump that uses mech timers with a frost guard. What do i do about the frost guard now that i am wiring direct from power.
Hi, Randall. You can just bypass the time and freeze control and wire the pump directly from the breaker.
I currently have single speed Tristar 1.5hp pump. is there a Hayward variable speed replacement motor that will be compatible with the wet end of my pump?
Will this pump be a good replacement for a Sta-Rite Dyna-Max 1 hp up-rated single speed pump (MPRA6E-205L)? My pool is 18,000 gallons, we have a 53 ft^2 DE fliter, the Voltage is 230 and the ports are 2 in. If this pump is not a good choice, what other dual speed or variable speed pumps would you recommend? Thanks!
Paul, If your pump is up rated to 1.65 or lower this pump will work fine. if it is higher than 1.65tp like a 2hp. I would recommend the Hayward EcoStar Variable Speed Pump SVRS - SP3400VSPVR
Hi, Can I use this pump on my 11,000 gallon pool with 1.5" plumbing throughout and pair it with my current waterway 19 (45 Gal per minute) sand filter and a AquaCal 135 BTU heat pump? I see the general recommendation is 2 inch plumbing. Also, I do not have any automation or chlorinator... just the pool and heater straight up. I currently have a Hayward .75 HP Super Pump that works fine but want to save energy. Thank you very much!
If you are wanting a pump that has 1.5" ports then I would go with part number SP2600VSP.
According to the manual this pump uses 385 watts @1750RPM. At my local rate of 11c/Kwh am I correct that this pump costs 385/1000*0.11=$0.042/hr to operate vs. my single speed 220V*9.95A*1.1SF/1000*0.11=$0.264/hr to operate??
Hi Marco, Your calculation is not correct on your single speed pump, you do not need to factor in the SF. Instead of $0.27/hr it's costing you $0.24/hr.
30x30by4 above ground. Currently has a 2 speed 2 HP Hi flow pump. Want to upgrade to Varible speed for utility bill. Any suggestions ?
Jerry, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not carry a variable speed pump for above ground pools.
Will the unions for the Tristar VS pump accept 2" or 2.5" plumbing? What exactly does "2" x 2.5" union connections". The manual list flow rates for various pipe sizes but it does not indicate the factory default unions accept (without reducers, ect).
Hi Dave, This means the union can accept either 2" or 2.5" plumbing, the inside of the unions accepts 2" plumbing and the outside of the union accepts 2.5" plumbing.
Need your recommendation. I have 2" plumbing on a 35k gallon pool. Currently I have a older Hayward Tristar 1.85 THP pump attached with a 48sqft DE filter. I am looking for a variable speed pump to cut some utility bills. I haven't measured it but I am estimating about 45' head of water. What would you all recommend? Would the Tristar VS work?
Hi Michael, Yes this Tristar Variable Speed Pump would be our recommendation as on the high speed it will be the exact pump as you currently have. Also the plumbing ports will be in the same location meaning no re-plumbing.
Can you provide the dimensions (LxWxH) of the shipping carton for the Hayward Tristar VS? I understand the weight is 52 pounds, but I also need the dimensions.
The boxed dimensions are roughly 26" L x 14" W x 14" H
Hi. Looking to replace a 1.5 HP Hayward single speed pump. Will this pump work (and will it work efficiently) on a pool with 2" suction plumbing and 1.5" return plumbing?
Hello Dave - The SP3200VSP pump will be more energy efficient and it will work for your application.
In most single-speed or dual-speed pump electrical wiring configurations, timers are used to provide power to the pump; one timer on a single speed; two timers on a dual speed (one a hi/low). Looking at the Tristar VS Variable Speed Pump wiring schematic, it seems that no timers are required whatsoever, and that the onboard pump control circuitry is used to turn the pump on and off, etc., without having to use any timers whatsoever. Is my understanding correct?
That is correct. The Tristar SP3200VSP model has a 24-hour clock built into it. The Hayward Tristar VS Pump Owners Manual has details on configuring the timer.
My old hayward motor died, it was a 1.5 hp a.o. smith. Would like to replace entire pump with a Hayward SP3200VSP Tristar Variable Speed. Will this work?
Hi Bill - Yes you could replace your 1.5 HP Hayward pump with the Tristar variable speed pump. For this pump we would suggest that you have a minimum of 2" plumbing. You will see a considerable savings on your electrical bill by upgrading to a variable speed pump, up to 90% energy savings!
