I needs a 071316S. Is this a fuel efficient pump? What is "full rated"? What is the difference between this and the B843? What Seals do I need? My Whisper Flo pump is Model is WF-28
Full rated motors have a counter part called up rated motors (Up Rated vs Full Rated). This motor is Energy Efficient (EE) and is made by Pentair, the manufacturer. Subsequently, it garners a higher price. The B843 2 HP Motor EE - Full Rate is the same motor, but manufactured by A.O. Smith. The GOKIT32 Tune Up Kit Pentair/Purex Whisperflo will be the seal kit for your pump.
I just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?
Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.
