What does full rate pump refer to verses this pump

A     Answered on 1/30/2017 by Stacey M.

Hello Randy, From the specs of the 011774 that is a 1.5hp full rate, even though it says 2hp, because a 1.5hp single speed has the Total Horsepower of 2.25hp. So this is a full rate pump.

Does the Whisperflo 2HP pump include the 1.5 and 2 inch slip unions? Thankyou

A     Answered on 6/5/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Al, The Whisperflo pump does not come with unions, you will have to purchase them separately p/n 11201-0154. The unions can be used with 1-1/2" or 2" pipes.

Does this pump come with the motor also? I currently own this model but it's making lots of noise. Trying to decide if I want to attempt to rebuild the pump and replace the motor or buy a new unit.

A     Answered on 3/11/2016 by Andy O.

Hello Shawn, The 011774 Whisperflo Pump 2 HP is a complete pump, which means it comes with the motor and strainer housing.

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 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.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Great product, shipping not so

from Dallas, TX ()

Pros: Quiet operation, ships in one piece, previous pump/motor lasted 16 years. I got what I ordered.

Cons: Damage from shipping. No con's for the actual product.

This replaces an identical WhisperFlo which finally gave out after 16 years. The new one is working well but I was concerned I may have to file a claim after noticing damage from shipping. The plate at the back of the motor (away from the pump) was broken off as well as the pedestal. The box was well-padded on top but the shipment from Florida to Texas did not holdup very well on the bottom. Fortunately, the damage seems to be only on the motor end. The pump shows no damage. The pump is up and running quietly.
