Product Description

Premium-Efficiency 2-Speed Pool Motor with Integrated Timer


A. O. Smith’s new 2Green two-speed premium efficiency replacement pump motor with integrated timer packs tremendous value into an easy to- nstall package. Energy efficiency continues to drive the needs of the pool market, from legislation to increased awareness of energy costs and environmental impact. And thanks to the 2Green’s energy efficient high and low speed windings paired with an onboard timer interface, energy consumption can be reduced by as much as 58% over single speed motors. The all-in-one integrated motor and timer means less work for an installer and maximum energy savings for pool and spa owners. A. O. Smith’s 2Green is Title 20 compliant** and best of all, there is no additional wiring required for new construction or retrofit installations!


**California’s Title 20 legislation states that pumps > 1HP (total) must be 2-speed or variable speed, and must have a control to default to low-speed (i.e. timer)

?     Asked on 5/22/2019 by Steve

Is there a version of this motor for 115 volt?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/23/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Steve, Could you give us the information off of the motor for your current pump like HP, Amps, Volts, SF, Frame, Model #, etc.. Also could you give us the pump make and model information, common pump names would be Pentair Whisperflo, Pentair Challenger, Jandy Stealth, etc.. To supply this information click the reply link below, also if you could send a few photos those are always helpful as well. If you send photos then take a close up shot of the motor label as well as a wide shot of the complete pump to include the pipes going in and out of the pump. To supply photos simply click the reply link below and upload your photos. Once we get any of this information we can make the proper recommendation.

HI, Richard. Your replacement options for this motor will be the B2983 which will require an external controller - 2512558-001 / T106R or the ECM27SQU - Variable Speed Pool Pump Motor.

A  Answered on 6/3/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Warren. You can use the Century B2982 motor as a suitable alternate replacement. You will also need the Superflo Tune Up Kit - GOKIT78.

Hi, JPP70. You do not need an Intermatic 104 timer to operate this motor. It can be wired directly to the breaker.

Customer has A.O.Smith Century Dual Speed Pool Motor w/ Digital Controller - B2983T Out of warranty. He only operates at 3450 rpm and never uses the slow speed. Problem with the Digital Controller. Can the Digital Controller be disconnected and motor wired directly to the 220v from the Intermatic T-104 timer he is using to control On/Off times?

A  Answered on 1/30/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Harry. Unfortunately, the controller cannot be bypassed so that it can operate as a single speed motor.

I have a stay rite pump Model#C48L2PA105C5 and it is 1.5 hp amps 19.2/9.6 serial # 32012cg RPM 3450. What is the best replacement for that,
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

HI, Jodi. The Century USQ1152 would be the direct replacement for MOD # C48L2PA105C5. If you would like to replace it with a dual speed motor you can use the B2982T or this B2983T which will provide a higher flow on low speed than the B2982T motor.

Q: I have a Pentair 340039 SuperFlo High Performance Single Speed Pool Pump 1.5 hp with a service factor of 1.65. Is this the correct dual speed motor? A: Kevin, If that is the listed HP and SF, we do not have a 2 speed motor that will work. Please confirm the the SF is actually 1.65 and that is not the total HP. Q: I read the tag incorrectly. 1.65 is the SF HP. It looks like the service factor is 1.1.

Hi, Kevin. The Century 2-Green B2982T Motor is the correct replacement for the Pentair Superflo Pump - 340039. I would also recommend getting the Superflo Tune Up Kit - GOKIT78

Hi, John. Once you've removed all of the housing bolts then pump's drive end (motor) will slide out of the pump housing. Sometimes you will need to use a little more for in order to get the drive end to break free from the housing.

How do I go from a single speed 1 H.P. Motor to a 2 speed 1.65H.P. Motor. The new motor has 4 wires the old one only has 3. It won't run on high speed the way I have it.
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Marsha, A 2 speed motor that does not have a timer directly on the motor will either need a dual speed timer or a 2 speed switch installed. If you do not have either of those, The motor will only run on the speed it is wired for.

?     Asked on 7/8/2017 by Greg

I have a Pentair 340039 pump on my 40000 gallon pool. Is this pump too small for the application? If the pump is acceptable, what would be the proper dual speed or variable speed motor to use? This thing is noisy and expensive to run.
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Greg, The 340039 is large enough for your pool. As for a 2 speed, are you running 230v or 115v? The 2 speed motors will only run on 230v.

I have a dura glas pump with 1.5 48y square frame. what do I need to change to use this 2 speed motor? impeller, defuser, etc. my dura gals was installed in 1998. if I change it will the dura glas 2 impeller and defuser fit this pump? thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Rick, Are  you running 230v or 115v? If you are ordering the 2 speed motor with timer, you will need the replacement seals. The impeller and diffuser can be re-used as long as they are not damaged.

?     Asked on 5/15/2017 by Richard

I have an AO Smith 1.0 HP 230v pump (Cat B853) that mounts on a circular flange, and it recently went out as I was opening my pool for the summer. I'm looking at replacing it with a pump that has a built in timer, thinking maybe two speed? Suggestions? Also, what other parts would I need to make the change to two speed? The flange I have has sprung a leak so looking at replacing that as also. Lastly, how long does a typical pump last, consideration if buying one with a timer? Thanks
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/16/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Richard, The correct dual speed replacement motor for the B853 would be the B2980T 3/4 HP Digital Dual Speed Replacement Motor. You have a 1 HP Up Rate motor and the 3/4 HP Full Rate would be the equivalent HP to the 1 HP up rate. I will do the math to make sense of this 1 HP Uprate x 1.25 Service Factor = 1.25 True HP and the .75 HP Full Rate x 1.67 Service Factor = 1.25 True HP. The nice thing about the digital dual speed timer is that a seperate dual speed timer is not needed, so you just need to replace the motor. We would suggest a shaft seal but we would need to know the make and model of your pump, examples would be Pentair Whisperflo, Challenger, Jandy Stealth, etc..

I HAVE AN A O SMITH USQ1202 10.4AMP 2HP 48Y FRAME 230 VOLT SQ FLANGE MOTOR WITH THREADED SHAFT. WHAT 2 SPEED MOTOR WOULD REPLACE THAT? MODEL ETC? ALSO IS THERE A VS REPLACEMENT ? I HAVE A MaxEglas II set up. thanks ANDREW
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/7/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Andrew, The B2983T would be the correct dual speed replacement motor for you, this motor is a 1.5 HP full rated motor which is the same as your 2 HP up rated motor. This is a 56Y motor which means the barrel of the motor is a 1/2" wider in diameter but the motor mounting pattern is identical which allows 56Y and 48Y motors to be interchangeable, so this will be the motor you require. If you want to go with a variable speed motor then you would require the ECM27SQU 2.7 HP Variable Speed Motor if you go with this motor then you may want to upgrade your impeller to a 2.5 HP Max E Glas II Impeller to take advantage of the higher HP range of the variable speed motor.

I have a Sta-Rite 1.5 HP pump model # P6RA6F-206L. My pool is salt water. The pump is three years old and terribly noisy. I'd like to consider replace the motor only and use the rest of the State-Rite systems. What is a bolt-in replacement? I'm intrigued by the latest energy efficient 2-speed pumps available. Any additional considerations would be greatly appreciated. The noise of my current pump is driving me insane.
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/30/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The correct dual speed replacement motor is B982T and if you have a saltwater pool you need a saltwater shaft seal, part number 35-423-1096, to keep your shaft seal from corroding and water getting to your motor bearings.

A  Answered on 4/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

According to the part number you provided the correct dual speed replacement is part number B975T, I would recommend the variable speed replacement though, ECM16CU, it is the same price and is a better motor.

?     Asked on 2/9/2017 by Mark

I have a salt pool. The pump model number is P2RA5E-131L, a second box below the model number has 1C03M in it. The motor is a 1hp and now froze up, I would like to go to a 1.5hp dual speed with timer. It is 230v. Will this motor work as a replacement?
 Reply

A  Answered on 2/9/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, that is a good replacement but increasing the horsepower on your motor you will also need to upgrade your impeller, 5056-09DB, and the saltwater shaft seal is part number 5250-210.

?     Asked on 1/24/2017 by Gonzo

I'm replacing a Pentair WF-26 and believe this is the motor I need to go from a single speed to a dual speed. Currently my booster pump is wired to the load on the timer that controls the pool pump. Since this has a built in timer, I'm assuming I no longer need the pump timer, and will bypass that. Do I just wire the booster pump timer directly to source power and hope the clocks don't get out of sync and the booster doesn't run without the pool pump?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

Good morning Gonzo, You can find the correct replacement parts here.Pentair / Purex Whisperflo Parts. If you are looking for a 1.5hp with a service of 1.47 than Yes, this is the motor for you. On the wiring aspect. Your booster pump is wired correctly. It is wired like that so if the pool pumps not running it will not come on. Because if that were to happen you would burn up your booster as it's not getting water.

I have the Hayward TriStar 1.5 HP pump (approx. 8 yrs old). My motor just burned out and I'm considering the AO Smith B2983T. Is it a direct replacement? Do I need any other parts? Also, I have a Aqua Rite salt system - does the B2983T have enough power operating at low speed to engage the flow switch to activate the salt cell?
 Reply

A  Answered on 8/20/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Cal, This motor can be used on the Hayward TriStar pump. In order to confirm if this motor is a direct replacement, you will need to provide the pump model or the motor part number. You will also need the pump shaft seal and o-rings which can be found on the Hayward TriStar Parts page.

Hi Matt, You can upgrade to this motor, however you will have to change out the impeller to the TriStar 1-1/2 Hp Impeller With Screw (SPX3215C). I would also recommend replacing the Shaft Seal (SPX3200SA), Diffuser O-ring (SPX4000Z1), TriStar Housing O-ring (SPX3200T) and Strainer Cover O-ring (SPX3200S) since you're replacing the motor.

No the correct 115 volt dual speed motor is model number B2981T and the 230 volt model is B2980T. You also will still need a timer mechanism. Please view our Intermatic timer page to view your options.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.

What is Service Factor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/11/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.
