I'm sure this is a replacement for my very old "Pentair WF 28 C" , but just want to make sure and get an idea of the savings I might expect from the "energy efficient" motor vs standard motor. Also, what is the "C" designation on my old pump? I can't seem to find anything on that ...
Regards, and thanks.
Hi, Randy. Your energy savings is approximately 25-33%. The "C" designation refers to the clamp style lid assembly.
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.

Pros: It is so quiet ...
Cons: None !
I have to thank INYO for the quick response to my order. I was in desperate need of a new pump and their unbeilevable turn around time on my order saved the day. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!!! I feel fortunate to have found this site. The price was the best I could find. And their service was even better. Kudo's to INYO. You have my respect and my business going forward. This is a really good pump, I'm very happy with it ... it's so much quieter than our last pump. I have to look at the waterfall so I know that the pump is on.

Pros: Extremely quiet
After 6 years of service (and 2 motor rebuilds) the original pump driving feeding the filter on our pool/spa combo was giving up the ghost. It was loud, inefficient and increasingly needing more TLC than it should have needed. After a brief email conversation with INYO's helpful staff, we picked the WhisperFlow. It shipped and arrived a couple of days quicker than expected. Installation was as expected, but the operating noise level of this pump is so low that I had to go check it a few times to confirm that it was in fact operating. I would not hesitate to recommend this pump to others, including the neighbor whose pump I can hear over my own.
