Is this pump dual speed or variable speed? Thanks, Marc
Marc, the Whisperflo Pump 1 1/2 HP - WF-26, model number 011773 is a single speed pump. The comparable dual speed Whisperflo would be the Pentair Whisperflo Dual Speed Up Rate 1 1/2 HP Pump - WFDS-26.
Pentair says this pump is uprated, I don’t see that in the description can you verify? Also is a good replacement for an uprated starite duraglass 1.5 Hp pump?
Yes the Whisperflo Pump 1 1/2 HP - WF-26 is a Uprated
I have a WF-26 Pentair system. What's difference of lower hp motor to a higher hp motor?
Also from a 1 speed to 2 speed system? Pros and cons?
Hi. The performance or water flow will be the difference between horsepowers. Single speed pump consumes more energy than a dual speed pump. The con of a dual speed with is plumbing restrictions, the low speed will not work with all pool types or applications if you have a high Total Dynamic Head (TDH).
how can I tell if my pump motor or pump has gone bad. when I turn the pump on a puff of smoke came from the rear of the motor and the breaker popped.
Hello, either there is a type of wiring problem, please check with wires are connected properly and not broken or corroded. It could be also since the breaker popped and smoke that something wasn't ground or connected which your motor is possibly compromised.
What is the difference between the WFE-26 and WFE-6?
Hi, The Total HP are the difference between the WFE-26 and the WFE-6 pumps. The WFE-26 pump has a total hp of 1.25 and the WFE-6 pump has a total hp of 2.20.
How much energy will this WF-26 Whisperflow pool filter use?
The WF-26 pump uses roughly 1,880 watts, if you run your pump 8 hours per day this equates to roughly 15.04 Killowatt Hours (kWh). The cost per kWh varies greatly based on the state you live in for example California and Hawaii are very expensive. If you take the national average of 13 cents per kWh you would spend $1.95 per day to run this pump 8 hours.
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.
(5 out of 5 stars) Excellent replacement pump
