I have to replace a Pre 92 Purex Aquatron pump Can you tell me which replacement pump which would be easy to switch out and not have to do a major amount of re- plumbing I have the Purex filter which was part of the original package and both pump and filter are mounted on angle iron frame
Hi, Paul. Unfortunately, any pump you use as a replacement the plumbing will have to be redone in accordance to the current pump installation requirements. If you can provide me with your Feet of Head calculation and flow rate requirements I can locate a suitable replacement.
can I purchase just the motor without the skimmer
Yes, if you are just needing to replace the motor that is possible, you just need the motor and shaft seal for a motor installation. If you provide you motor model number I can help you with the correct motor replacement and shaft seal.
Are motors included with the pumps or are they sold separately?
Hi Birkes, yes the motor is included will all of our pumps.
I have the Pentair 011772 with a date code of 08/16/2013. It was installed when I purchased the property in 2014. I have noticed the pump getting louder, small bubbles coming out of the returns for several minutes after start up (new issue), reduced suction at the vacuum head and reduced pressure coming out of the returns. I was thinking about a new pump until I saw the date code. Any recommendations? The sand filter was refreshed recently with new sand and all new o-rings. Thanks n advance

Hi Judy, You will need to calculate the total feet of head for your pool using "Step 7" of our How to Size a Pool Pump for Your In-Ground Pool. Once you have the total feet of head calculated you can use the performance Curve chart under Product Description to see the GPM of your Whisperflo Pump 1 HP.
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.
