Hi folks, I have a Hayward model SP1580x15. I want to put a ball valve and I'm wondering what to order?

Hello, Unfortunately, you are not able to put a ball valve in flex tubing. You would have to replumb with hard pvc.

I have a 16 x 32 pool. The pump and filter set up is positioned about 1-1.5' lower than the top of pool. Can I use a pump like this one, or am I better off with an in ground pump. The pump I was using was actually an above ground, which seemed to work fine.Thanks!
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/7/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Angela, Since your pump is below the water level of your pool then you should be able to use an above ground pool pump. The inground pumps are self priming which means that they can pull water up to them since inground pools normally have the equipment above the water level. In your situation a gravity fed pump like this one should work fine.

I purchased a Hayward filter & pump combo from a local pool supply store. When I got home I noticed that the pump model SP1580X15 does not have an on/off switch. Is it suppose to have an on/off switch. Additionally it looks like the end cap is missing (as compared to my last Hayward 1.5 hp pump).
