I am replacing the 1-1/2 h.p. motor on my Pentair pool pump which crosses over to an A.O. Smith B2841 or B2841V1 motor i beleive. What is the tune up kit p/n that i will need for the following pump? Whisperflo pump p/n: 011518 A tune up kit includes the shaft seal assembly, and a few Orings/seals, is this correct ? Thank You ! Scott

The gokit32 would be your seal kit if you have a chlorine pool and gokit32salt if you have a salt pool. They do come with the shaft seals, other o rings and gaskets.

Pumps my 1-1/2hp pool pump (Centurion CF11 N1 1A) went out when I fired it up (12 years old) Looking at maybe upgrading to energy efficient pump... considering Pentair or maybe Sta-Rite. Your Pentair WFE-26 (547.99) and WFE-6 (515.99) seem very similar but they are described as "up-rate" (26) and "full-rate" (6). What is difference and do you think these are similar to my current pump. (24700 gal pool; 230/115 pump we are wired for 230)Other or better suggestions? Last year I picked up a used sa

Based on your pool size you need a Gallon per minute rating (GPM) of 52 GPM's to turn your pool over in an 8 hour time period, I show that your current Challenger pump outputs roughly 60 GPM's and we show that the part # you provided for your current pump is for a 1 HP. The sand filter you have has a GPM rating or 62 GPM's where the large Sta Rite filter has a GPM rating of 110 GPM's. The uprated WFE-26 pump outputs a GPM of 80 and the Full Rate WFE-6 pump has a GPM of 100. With all of this being said I would suggest going with the WFE-26 if you are going to stay with your current set up and swap out to the Sta Rite filter as the current sand filter can only handle 62 GPM's if you do intend on adding water features or see the need for the increased GPM's in the near future then I would go with the WFE-6 and swapping out to the S8M150. Lastly note that the amp draw is less on the WFE-26 so your operational cost would be roughly 20% less then that of the WFE-6. You may view or p

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?

A     Answered on 2/16/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.
