Question

Asked on 06/25/2015 by Jeff

I have a Jandy Stealth 2hp pump motor that went bad. This pump is only used for two waterfalls, and pumps too much water and causes overflow problems. Can I switch just the motor out to a 1.5 hp while keeping the rest of the pump assembly intact?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 06/25/2015 by Product Specialist Brian M.

Depending on the model of Jandy Stealth, yes you can. There are two different versions. To switch down a motor size you would just need to downsize the impeller and the diffuser. Other than that, all the other parts can stay the same.

Question

Asked on 05/15/2015 by Vasant

I have A.O.Smith B848 Centurion 1.0 HP motor, Can I replace1.5HP B2848 motor instead?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/16/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Vasant, If you currently have a B848 motor then I would suggest staying with the 1 HP B2848 Motor. The reason being is that most likely your filter was sized to be able to handle a 1 HP pump and possibly the 1-1/2 motor will be to powerful for your filter. If you decided you definitely want to go up to the 1-1/2 HP Motor than you would need the B2858 1-1/2 Full Rate Replacement Motor you will also need to change your impeller to a 1-1/2 HP impeller and we would need to know the model of your pump to make the impeller reccomendation.

Hi Marco, We do carry all of the Individual Parts for the Waterway Champion Pump but unfortunately there is not a tune up kit for the Champion pump so you would purchase the parts individually.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/12/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.

Question

Asked on 01/12/2012 by Guest

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/12/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.

Question

What is Service Factor?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 01/11/2012 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.

   (5 out of 5 Stars) Pool Filter Motor

Reviewed By: from Bowie, Maryland ()

Pros: Customer service, shipping time, price and product

Cons: None that I can think of

Best of all is the wonderful customer service help provided by Inyopools. The product was here in the time specified and the price was considerably less than the 5 other companies I checked with first. The product was as specified and ordered and hasn't given me any problems to date. It was installed about a month ago.

This was my first time changing a pump motor. I was surprised at the price of the motors. Price shopping brought me here and I was able to learn what to do and how to do it. Motor went in easily and has been working like a charm. What's not to like.

Pros: Price, quality, quietness, on-time delivery

Motor was delivered as promised, fit perfectly, and is much quieter than the old one. Could tell immediately was new as the volume of water moving through system was visibly increased. Motor does seem to run warm but old one did also.

I ordered a replacement pump from Inyo Pools that was about $500 cheaper than buying it locally & the person I talked to was very helpful & helped me get it ordered easily & arrived quickly. I am very happy with Inyo Pools as a supplier of my pool parts.
