Product Description

SAVE UP TO $513 ANNUALLY!

Enjoy your time in the water without getting soaked by high energy bills. Maximize energy savings with the new imPower™ pool pump motor. Thanks to its innovative design, the imPower motor is inherently more efficient than traditional induction motors. In fact, consumers can see savings as high as $513 per year after replacing an equivalent motor with the imPower motor. The secret lies in an advanced electronic control along with an innovative motor design, which enables the motor to operate at lower speeds and higher efficiency – saving you money.

Note: Most California residents are eligible for a $100 rebate with your power company when upgrading to a variable speed pump. Please contact your local power company for details.

DOING MORE WITH LESS

There’s more to the imPower pool pump motor than just energy efficiency. It’s lighter and more compact than typical induction motors and operates with less noise, offering virtually silent filtering operation. And, the imPower features TEFC - Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled construction and a high-strength bearing system. What does all that mean? Simply that this motor is as tough and reliable as it is smart. So you won’t have to worry about ongoing high maintenance costs. The imPower motor is easy to install and easy to operate. The speed control requires no electronic or programming
knowledge. It works on a single-or two-speed timer, as well as automation control your pool system may already have. And, because it’s designed as a drop-in replacement, it’s easy to install whether to a new pool construction or as a replacement motor.
RELIABLE

There's more to the imPower pool pump motor than just energy efficiency. It's lighter and more compact than typical induction motors and operates with less noise, offering virtually silent filtering operation. Also, the imPower features TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) construction and a high-strength bearing system. What does all that mean? Simply that this motor is as tough and reliable as it is smart. The imPower motor is also built on the ECM technology that we have manufactured for the HVAC market for over 20 years, ensuring that the benefits of the imPower motor can be experienced for many years.

EFFICIENT

imPower's three-speed design makes it ideal for pumping applications. As the affinity law of hydraulics states, if the speed of the motor is halved, the power is reduced by a factor of eight. The lower speeds with the imPower motor enable the pump to filter at lower speeds, resulting in energy savings for the homeowner. Anytime that a contractor can help a customer save money, the contractor ends up coming out ahead as well.

The imPower motor is inherently more efficient than traditional induction motors, thanks to its innovative brushless permanent-magnet design. As compared to a single speed induction motor, the imPower motor is over 12% more efficient on high speed, over 50% more efficient on medium speed, and over 80% more efficient on low speed. Consumers can see savings as high as $513* per year after replacing a single speed motor with the imPower motor. It's an upgrade your customers will love.

 

EASY INSTALLATION
AND VERSATILE

Designed as a drop-in replacement for an induction motor, there are three easy ways to install the energy-saving imPower pool pump motor.

  1. Install the imPower motor directly to your existing single-speed timer. The motor operates on high speed for 2 hours and low speed for the remaining hours set on the timer. The homeowner can change the speed via the buttons on the top of the motor control panel to any of the three speeds. No difficult programming to learn. Easy!
  2. Install the imPower pool pump motor to a two speed timer. The imPower motor can allow for any of the three speeds to be operated by the two speed timer by allowing the second speed to be changed between the medium and low speeds which can be accomplished in 10 seconds.
  3. Finally, install the imPower pool motor to a third party automation controller. The automation controller can select any of the three speeds via a low voltage DC signal for the ultimate flexibility. All programming is done on the automation controller.

With any of the three optional installations, there is no additional time needed for installation versus a standard single speed induction motor.

Product Specs This motor works as a replacement motor for the following pool pumps: Hayward Super Pump, Hayward Max Flow, Hayward Super II & Jacuzzi Magnum. This variable speed motor is also designed to replace any existing 56J fulll-rated pool filter pump motors rated at or below 3/4 HP 1.65 SF or up-rated motors at our below 1.0HP 1.25 SF.

Is the I'm pool motor made any more. ?

A     Answered on 7/26/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Bob, Unfortunately, this motor has been discontinued. 

?     Asked on 4/22/2017 by Rev. Larry Yerger

The speed control on my pump is not working properly... Or at all... It comes on, runs for 2 minutes at high speeds and kicks down to low... No lights flash on the control panel and nothing I do change this. I cannot reduce it... I cannot increase it... So I cannot vacuum my pool... I need a fix... Earlier you posted that there's no wiring diagram available for direct wire...but is it possible to hard wire to only run on high?

A     Answered on 4/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Rev. Larry Yerger. Unfortunately, we do not have a wiring diagram that would allow to bypass the controller on the motor. You will have to replace the entire motor with p/n UST1102 or UCT1102.

The motor controls on the pump are fried, and I want to direct wire the pump. What wires are the motor leads for high speed. (230v)

A     Answered on 10/26/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gerald. Unfortunately, we do not have a wiring diagram of how to bypass the controller.

What is part number for the shaft seal for this motor?

A     Answered on 8/2/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The shaft seal is specific the pump housing, not the motor. If you can provide the model of the pump housing we can locate the correct shaft seal.

Does this model have a capacitor? If so, where is it located?

A     Answered on 7/7/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, From the specs and manual of the motor a capacitor is not listed.

how to wire motor to run high speed only

A     Answered on 5/10/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

Like any other motor schedule, you would set the times you wish the pump to run and select the speed at which the motor is to run. Reference the Marathon ImPower Owner's Manual.

Can you purchase a replacement electronic management system for this motor?

A     Answered on 4/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Unfortunately the electronic management system is not available separately.

I'm trying to find a replacement motor for my pool pump but my model number doesn't match what you have listed as the model number. My model number begins with a C48 and yours begins with an SP. Please help.

A     Answered on 1/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

What we have listed on our chart pages is the pump model number. The model number you have will just identify the motor. If you look on the plastic housing on the pump there should be a sticker which will have the pump model number. You can usually find this by the discharge port on the pump. Once you locate it you can choose the correct replacement motor. Be certain to change the shaft seal and gaskets as needed. You can use our >How to guide if you need help.
