We currently have a hayward super pump 1.5 hp that the motor went on. We previously had the same hayward super pump with 1hp. I'm trying to figure out if we need to be at a 1hp or 1.5 to replace ours. Our pool is roughly 20,000 gallons. I will attach photos of my pump. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, Samantha. Unfortunately, we're unable to tell using pictures. You can use our How Do I Calculate Feet of Head for My Pool? or our How to Size a Pool Pump guide to assist you with properly sizing a pool pump.

Hello I've just purchase a Hayward Super pompe. I want to install the wires on the pump... on which screw do i put the black and white wire? What happens if i put the wrong color wire on the wrong screw? Nore, there's only two screws.

A  Answered on 7/1/2019 by Industry Professional

On the top of the pump you will see a decal that has a wiring diagram. You can use this picture to see how to wire the pump depending on if you are using 110 or 220

  • Commented on 7/1/2019 by Product Owner

    Thanks for the answer, however not quite clear on the diagram on which screw the black wire goes on. My model is C48L2N134B3, Serial 02217CH. Volt 115/230, HP 1 1/2, RPM 3450. As you can see in the picture it's set to 230 volts and i've placed the black wire on top and the white wire at the bottom... Is this the correct wiring configuration for 230 volts ?


    • Commented on 7/2/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      If it's 230v, it doesn't make a difference since both lines are 115v hot. As long as you have 1 wire to line 1 and the other to line 2 and green to ground, it will be fine.

What is the replacement motor for this pump?

A  Answered on 6/25/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

The Hayward Super Pump SP2610X15 replacement motor is the 1.5 HP Round Flange 56J Up Rate Motor - UST1152

?     Asked on 6/18/2019 by Rob

I currently have a C48L2N134B1 1.5 HP Super pump which I need to replace. I've decided to replace the whole pump because replacing just the motor seemed to complicated for me. The SP2610X15 looks identical and I'm hoping not to have to configure my current set up. Is this the right replacement for me? Thanks

A  Answered on 6/19/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, this is the direct replacement or you can use model PL2602 which is near identical at part of the cost.

OK!! My motor finally went on my inground pool. And yes the Hayward motor/pump is now going on 22 years!! Looks like the shaft is corroded, hard to get to so prob best now if I replace it. Pump is also on 22 years plus. Model number is C48L2N134B1 - 1 1/2 HP, 3450 RPM. I am going to replace the whole motor/pump at this point since I do not want issue later on and now need just a pump. What model do you recommend?

A  Answered on 5/20/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ed, I would suggest the PureLine Prime PL2602 1.5 HP which is a drop in replacement for the Hayward Super Pump, the only difference is the Prime has 2" ports where the Hayward Super Pump has 1.5" ports.

I have a Hayward super pump exactly as pictured in your model SP2610X15 with the gold colored pump. Mine is model # C48L2N134B1 ( 1 1/2hp) and says SP-1610-Z1-M. made by A.O.SMITH. I need a replacement motor and seal kit but from what i see the replacement motor you recommend is a Century (C48L2N134), MODEL UST1152. Can you tell me why can't you buy the exact same replacement motor as the original (gold) or does that only come with the complete pump. I'd like to stick with hayward equipment.

A  Answered on 6/27/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello, the original motor on your pump is currently a Hayward branded Century Motor. The only difference between the UST1152 and your current motor is the gold colouring. If you wish to have another gold Hayward branded century motor, you will need to purchase a whole new pump.

Hi, Nick. You can use your existing plumbing connections. The ports are in the same location. You will have to make sure that your circulation and filtration system is sufficient for a 1.5 Hp pump. Use our How to Size a Pool Pump and How To Size a Pool Filter to determine sizing.

My existing pump has a barring going bad. The pump has a model number of C48L2N134B1 SER#18210CH. Further down on the manufacturer's tag is a number I am seeing on your list of pumps.

I have a Centurion b129 (01-64304-24) motor on a hayward super pump (sp2610x15). I am fairly certain the bearings are going due to high pitch whine from the motor, and I think I have a bad seal due to a leak at the area where the motor connects. Can you suggest a. the proper replacement seal kit b. replacement motor c. what dual speed motor would work with my setup THANKS

A  Answered on 4/12/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Seth. The Century Motor B129 and Tune Up Kit GOKIT3 or GOKIT3SALT are the parts needed. You can use the B2977T as a dual speed option.

A  Answered on 12/8/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

The gallons per minute (GPM) for this pump is based on the Total Resistance to Flow (Feet of Head). Here is a link to How Do I Calculate Feet of Head for My Pool? if you need assistance determining that number. The product page for the Hayward Super Pump 1.5 HP 50 Cycle 220V - SP2610X1551 has a chart to help determine the GPM of this pump.

My in ground pool of 30,000 gallons currently uses a Hayward C48L2N134B3 Series SE02 pump. Can I replace it with the Super pump SP2610X15 you offer with the strainer housing? If so what is improved over my old pump and what size is the pvc from the pool to the pump as well as from the strainer basket to the filter? What other options are available and what are the advantages of each over what I have now?

A  Answered on 12/7/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The Super Pump would be a great replacement pump as far as the pump you have now and the SP2610X15 both being 1.5HP. As far as telling you the differences between the two, I would need to know which model of Hayward pump you have, not the motor.

I am using a superpump as a jet pupil for a 700 gallon in ground hour tub. It is feeding six jets and is approximately 75 feet from body of water. I only have descent flow from two of the jets a and very little from the other four. What is the possibility that this pump is not powerful enough to provide pressure to all six jets?

A  Answered on 11/9/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Dan, Giving the distance the pump is from the body of water this pump would not provide the water flow needed to properly operate the jets on your hot tub. You will need a high performance pump like the Hayward Super II Pump or Tri-Star Pump.

A  Answered on 7/27/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Neal, You can go down in horsepower to the UST1102 A.O. Smith 1 HP Round Flange Up Rate Motor, but you would also need to replace your impleller with a sp2607-c (spx2607c) part number 5110-10ca.The pump itself will not come with a saltwater seal, so if you decide to reaplce the motor I would suggest getting the salt water tune-up kit GOKIT3SALTSaltwater Tune Up Kit Hayward Super Pump.

Jack, With the Hayward 1 1/2 HP Single Speed Super Pump the Hayward EC75A D.E. Filter will be your best option.

?     Asked on 4/29/2015 by Tom K

The water pressure seems to be week as it exits into the pool. Does the motor lose efficiency over time or maybe the empeler needs to be replaced.

A  Answered on 4/30/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

Motors will run full speed until the day they freeze up and stop. The most likely culprit is the filter. Trying this : if you have a sand or DE filter - put the multiport on re-circulate. If you have a cartridge, remove the element from the tank. Then turn the system on. If this returns the system to its usual power , you know you have to clean, or get new filter media. If that does not help, there could also be debris wrapped around the impeller. You can try to reach it by removing the basket and putting your hand in, or you have to separate the motor from the housing to really get at it.

?     Asked on 9/17/2014 by Guest

Hi, can this pump be used with a salt water chlorinator [generator] made in South Africa by Justchlor which requires a salt level of 6000ppm by weight, yes I know most USA systems call for 3500ppm. After 27 months my pump motor bearing is whining badly and I presume the shaft seal has gone, I see Hayward has a kit with a salt shaft seal, do you stock this pump "salt ready" if this is what I need?

A  Answered on 9/17/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The SP2610X15 is a 1.5HP 230/115v single speed pump that can be used with salt water pools. The main issue with a higher salt ppm level is that the salt will corrode the rubber seals and any metals that it comes in contact with at a quicker rate. Unfortunately the pump does not come "salt ready". You would have to purchase a salt water tune up kit separately. I recommend changing the shaft seal every season with a salt water pool to prevent shaft seal failure.

?     Asked on 10/8/2013 by Guest

How many hours per day should I run my pump?

A  Answered on 10/8/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

There are many factors to consider; bather load, gallons of water, pump horsepower, type and size of filter just to name a few. A good guideline is 8-10 hours a day. On the cooler days and early and late season, you can cut the run time down to 4-6 hours because there is usually less swimmers and cooler water requires less chemicals. In peak season, when it is the hottest, raising the run time to 10-12 hours per day will help to keep the pool clean and circulating during it’s time of heaviest use.
