Product Description

PureLine 1 HP Replacement Pool Motor for Pentair & Jandy brand pool pumps

Is your pool pump motor running loud, leaking or humming? These are all signs that it’s time to be replaced. The PL2853 PureLine Replacement motor is designed as a drop-in replacement motor for some of the most popular 1 HP pool pumps like the Pentair Whisperflo, Pentair Challenger, Pentair Super Flo, Jandy Stealth and many more.

The PureLine replacement motor is made of the highest quality components like sealed ball bearings, which means it is an ultra quiet motor. Because of its high-quality construction, the PureLine replacement motor is backed by a full 2-year warranty.

When it comes to replacing your motor Inyo has you covered. We have created a ton of resources to make this project a snap, like our Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor. This video walks you through all the steps to replace your motor. Most of our customers decide to tackle this project on their own, and by following our video they complete the project in about an hour.

When replacing your motor we highly recommend a tune up kit which includes all the seals and gaskets for your pump. Many times when you use your old seals you may have leaking. Seal leakage is one item which will void the motor's warranty so make sure to protect your investment with a tune-up kit. Below we have listed the tune up kits for some of the most popular pool pumps.

What is the expected life of a challenger pump? My motor has seized up and the unit was installed 11 years ago so debating on replacing the whole pump/motor assembly.
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/19/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

So that will really vary on maintenance, however, I would say on the average of about 15-20 years. If the housing isn't warped from heat, cracked or leaking then they can last a very long time.

You will not need a bearing with this motor but we do recommend replacing the seals and gaskets but we would need to know the model name or number of the front pump housing that the motor attaches to. If you are not sure of that you can email images of that to upload@inyopools.com so we can further advise.

My motor recently started running quite a bit louder than normal. It's a Century Model #193985XCN/Jandy Pro Series. I think this is the proper replacement pump (this one or or the AO B2853). I also think you would recommend the Jandy Shaft Seal (Jandy Part #5020-087) but just want to make sure I am looking at all of this correctly. Thanks for your help! Kevin

?     Asked on 6/3/2019 by Tim

What is the difference between the Pureline PL2853 (139.99) & the AO Smith B2853 (157.99) motors? I see one has a 2 yr warranty vs 1 yr on the other and there is a difference in amps. What does a lower amp rating, PL is 5.7/11.4 and the AOS is 6.6/13.2, mean in regards to operation of the motor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/11/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Matt S.

Essentially they are the same motor style, the B2853 but made by two different manufacturers. The lower amp rating means it costs less to operate.

I have a .75 HP Pentair Whisperflow pump that is dying. I've never been satisfied with the suction on the skimmer furthest away from the pump and would like to replace my .75HP motor with a 1 HP motor. Besides having to upgrade the impeller would the rest of the pump housing be compatible? Current motor: 071313 Current Empeller: 073127
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/22/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Chris, Since your current motor is a Full Rated 3/4 HP which has the same True HP as a 1 HP Uprated motor, this would mean you need to upgrade to a 1.5 HP Up-Rated Motor to see an increase in power for your pump. This would mean you would require the PL2854 1.5 HP Up Rated Replacement Motor and this 1.5 HP Up Rated / 1 HP Full Rated Whisper Flo Impeller and this Whisperflo Seal Kit. This would be all you need to upgrade the HP. We put together this Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project.

          Hi Tony, No you don't need the complete pump. The humming is a bad capacitor in the motor and a motor replacement with Tune Up Kit will get you back up and running. Here is a Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor which should be helpful when you tackle this project. The only side note is that if you live in California you will need a variable speed motor if you live any other state than this single speed motor will be fine.

You will actually need the PL2854 1.5 HP Up Rated Replacement Motor as you current motor is a 1 HP Full Rated Motor which is equivalent to a 1.5 HP Up Rated motor. To explain this it easiest to show the math which I will do so here 1 HP Full Rate x 1.65 Service Factor = 1.65 True HP. 1.5 HP Up Rate x 1.15 Service Factor = True HP of 1.65

Hi, Jerry. Yes, this PL2853 motor will work with the Sta-Rite Supermax - PHK2RA6E-102L model. You will also need to get the SuperMax Tune Up Kit - GOKIT78

My motor hums but does not start. Any suggestions other than replacement? If I need to replace a Pentair model SF-n1-1a part #340038. What are the choices and what is the advantage of each? Thanks

Hi, Thomas. You will need to test the capacitor using our How to Test a Pool Pump Capacitor. If the capacitor fails, then it will need to be replaced. If it's okay, then you can check the windings using our How To Use a Multimeter to Test a Pool Pump Motor - Winding Resistance. Your options for replacing the motor is this PL2853 (standard), B2853 (standard) or B2661 (energy efficient). You will also need the Super Flo Tune Up Kit - GOKIT78

By the way, my current pump motor is WFE 3, 3/4HP and service factor is 1.25. So which 3/4 HP motor fits my current one with a higher service factor ?my another concern is How to wire the motor with current wiring ? Thank you.

The 3/4 H.P Pool Motor Square Flange 56Y Up Rate (B852, B2852) and the 1 H.P Pool Motor Square Flange 56Y Up Rate - B853 are comparable motors. Please view our How To Understand True Pump Horsepower - Up Rated vs Full Rated guide. Please do not forget the Tune Up Kit Pentair/Purex Whisperflo Saltwater - GOKIT32SALT or the shaft seal when replacing the motor. The How To Wire A Pool Pump will walk you through the wiring.

A  Answered on 4/20/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Greg, Your motor is a Full Rate 1 HP motor which is equivalent to a 1.5 HP up rate motor, so you would require the PL2854 Replacement 1.5 HP Up Rate Motor we would also suggest a Whisperflo Tune Up Kit when replacing your motor. Finally here is a Video on How to Replace a Pool Pump Motor which you may find helpful when you tackle this project.

Hi, Your pump is actually a 1 HP Full Rate Pump which is equivalent to a 1.5 HP uprate motor so you would need the PL2854 1.5 HP Up Rate Replacement Motor We do show where you purchased the 1 HP up rate motor would you like for us to bill your credit card the difference and ship out the 1.5 HP Up Rate Motor, also we would suggest this Super Flo Tune Up Kit when replacing your motor. Finally here is a Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor which you may find helpful when tackling this project. We will put your order on hold until we hear back from you on how you would like to proceed.

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.

"Screaming" Pool Pump

Written on 4/10/2019 by Guest

1) I shut off the breaker in the panel for POOL.
2) I took off the cover for wires, unhooked them.
3) I used a ratchet to separate motor from the pump.
4) I used a hex key to separate the "flange" from the motor, that has an impeller.
5) I cleaned the gasket recess, lubricated it, and inserted the new gasket.
6) I cleaned up all of the impeller, housing, etc.
7) I attached the flange and impeller to the motor.
8) I attached the motor assembly to the pump.
9) I attached the wires to the motor, using a new wiring "clamp."
10) I primed the pump with about a gallon of water.
11) I reset the pool breaker, and NO more screaming motor/pump = purrs.

My factory installed pentair pump quit working.

Written on 6/30/2018 by Guest

Finding the right pump eas easy! I emailed inyopools, gave them the motor number from the factory pentair motor, and they replied back in a couple hours with three different options. I chose one and it was delivered in about 5 days.
I ordered the bearing and seal kit with my motor for an extra $30. Overall I saved $200 from purchasing at my local pool store and an additional $130 saved by doing it myself.
Install was easy and straight forward. I followed the instructions on the YouTube video from inyopools on YouTube. The only issue i had was when re installing the the impeller it is necessary to hold the shaft still with a screwdriver or pair of pliers. The motor from inyopools had a small rubber plug covering the back of the shaft that appeared to be part of the metal plate covering the back of the motor. It took some searching and experimenting to discover it. It would have been handy to have some kind of diagram or instructions in the box for that reason.
