Can this pump be exposed to the weather? Or should it be in a enclosed housing?

A  Answered on 10/17/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gary. Yes, this pump can be exposed to the weather. However, placing the pump in an enclosed room will extend the life of the pump.

I have a SP2807x10 hayward pump, century 1HP ph1 SF 1.1 c48k2n143B3 My original Hayward lasted 15 years....The pump above hasn't gone 3 years. Needless to say I'm not a happy camper. My pool is 11,000 gallons ( a mom and pop get wet and get out, no bells no whistles pool.) It appears this pump is the correct fit. Have they had a good track record? This is our retirement home, Should this pump last at least as 1/2 the original Haywood? Thanks A Joe Scimeca Home 321 766 6873

A  Answered on 10/10/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, these pumps have had a very good track record. We really can only speculate what the issue was that could cause the motor to fail in three years. Technically there can be multiple reasons. The motor on these pumps is a genuine A.O. Smith Century motor just like the original Haywards have as well. Please call in and maybe we can look into some other options for you.

Hi Jim, if you have a WF24 Whisperflo Pump then this PureLine Prime 1 HP pump would be a great replacement. The WF24 Whisperflo has 2" plumbing and so does the PureLine Prime. The ports on the pump are not in the exact same location so you will have some minor re-plumbing.

I have a Hayward super pump 1 hp SP-1607-Z1-M that is probably 13 years old and leaking so it is time to replace I am sure. Would this be a good replacement and why over another Hayward?

A  Answered on 2/15/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Megan C.

Yes, it is a great replacement for the Hayward Super Pump 1 HP Single Speed - SP2607X10 The part number SP-1607-Z1-M only confirms the motor as an A.O. Smith 1 HP Round Flange Up Rate Motor - UST1102 the part number SP-1607-Z1-M does not determine what model pump you have. Please provide the model number off of the pump housing not, the motor. The pump offers the same great quality as the Hayward Super Pump at a more economical price. The PureLine Prime Pool Pump 1 HP - PL2601 also includes the 2" quick disconnect unions ($40 Value) for the 2" ports of the intake and discharge of the pump.

My husband needs to replace our pump on our inground pool. I saw your PureLine brand. I've never heard of it before but would love to save money but will this one last? The last pump we bought says its an Emerson 1081 motor. (We need the entire assembly with skimmer) The model number on the motor says C55CXKMB-5012. I think we had Hayward in the past. This motor didn't seem to last as long as the Hayward. Will this one work for me?

A  Answered on 5/10/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The PureLine Prime Pump is a great pump. The nice thing about the PureLine Prime is that it uses an AO Smith / Century motor which is an extremely reliable motor. Based on the model # you provided this would be the properly sized pump for you.

How do I know how many feet of head I have in my pool?. My filter flow rate is 62 GPM and I have 1 1/2 " piping

A  Answered on 4/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Riad, A very rough estimate for feet of head is to take the average distance of pipe on your suction side. For example if you have 30' of pipe going from your pump to your main drain and 40' of pipe going to skimmer # 1 and 50' of pipe to skimmer #2 then you have roughly 40' of head (30' + 40' + 50' = 120' / 3 = 40' of head). In this example the PL2601 outputs 50 GPM at 40' of head so we would suggest going up the the 1.5 HP PL2602 PureLine Prime which outputs 60 GPM at 40' of head. For a very detailed way to determine feet of head then read our Article on How to Determine Feet of Head.

I have an older Northstar pump that I believe is 1.5 hp. Im thinking about replacing with a pureline pump. I replaced the motor on mine last year and it is screaming this year. Im going to run it long enough to get the pool clear ( I just opened it up). My biggest issue is that the pump is about 50 feet from the pool. I need a pump that will handle the distance. any advice?

A  Answered on 4/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Tracy for your pool we would suggest a 2 HP PureLine Prime Pump as a suitable replacement for the 1.5 HP Hayward Northstar. The ports are not in the exact same location so you will have some re-plumbing.

I currently have a Purex WF-4 and would like a replacement pump. I am looking at your Pureline Model PL2601. Would that be the correct replacement for my pump? Please let me know so I can get one ordered. Thank you

A  Answered on 1/23/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Michael, The WF-4 Whisperflo is equivalent to a 1.5 HP PL2602 Pureline Prime the reason being is that your WF-4 Whisperflo uses a full rated motor and the PureLine Prime uses and uprated motor. The full rate motor has a higher service factor at 1.65 and the uprated PureLine Prime has a lower service factor of 1.0. When you multiply the service factor by your HP you get the true hp meaning your WF-4 has a true HP of 1HP x 1.65 SF = True HP of 1.65 HP where the 1.5 HP prime has a true HP of 1.5HP x 1.0 SF = True HP of 1.5 HP. With all of that being said I would highly recommend the PureLine Prime pump it is a great pump and the 1.5 HP would work just fine for you.

A  Answered on 11/17/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Adam Y.

Redneck Rep, Good morning. We do not carry that particular pump. If you would like to replace the motor on it we can help you with that. We would just need the model on the motor. If you wanted to replace the entire pump that pump would be a good replacement you would need to change the plumbing.

I had a Hayward super pump that runs a in pool spa. It was not hooked to the filter.can I go with a less expensive pump?

A  Answered on 8/23/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

If there is nothing wrong with the pump housing I would just replace the motor and seals, especially if it's an older super pump. The older super pumps are probably in the top three pumps out there. If you have a leak or crack in your current pump housing then the PureLine Prime would be a good replacement and you won't have to change the plumbing. The new super pumps only have 1.5" ports where the older models have 2" ports. The PureLine Prime has 2" ports and would directly replace your current super pump if replacing the entire unit is what you decide to do.

I have a Hayward Super Pump 3/4 hp with 1.5" water lines and ports. If I change to the PureLine 1 hp with 2" ports will that be a problem?

A  Answered on 5/26/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Don, If you are going from 1.5" pipe up to 2" ports that will not be a problem. The issue comes into play when you go from 2" plumbing down to 1.5" ports. You should also be fine with going from a 3/4 HP up to a 1 HP as in most cases the flow differences are not that significant. If you like you could email us the size of your pool along with the make and model of your filter so we can double check, but you should be just fine with the 1 HP.

A  Answered on 5/21/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Bob, If you have had a 1.5 HP pump on your pool with 1.5" plumbing then you would be fine with this pump as it has the same flow rating as the majority of 1.5 HP pumps on the market.

Is the PureLine Prime Pool Pump 1 Hp a compatible direct replacement for my pump / motor combo? The current motor is 230 /115 Volt and SF 7 Amp motor. The pureline prime lists to be a 6 amp motor; will this be a problem for swap out?

Hi Ken, Yes the 1 HP PureLine Prime is a direct replacement for the 1 HP Hayward Super Pump you listed. The motor on the PureLine Prime can be wired either 115V or 230V and when wired 230V it draws 6 amps. This would not be a problem if your current motor draws 7 amps, it will just mean that the new pump will be costing you less to operate as it uses less energy.

My former pump stopped working

Turned off the electricity.
Cut the PCV pipes.
Took off the old pump.
Planned the best position for the new pump, which was a little bit biggeer that the former so I needed to make sure to have space in between the filter and the pump and also the pipes surrounding it.
Connected the main pipes to the filter and to the main pipes first and then connected the pipes that were coming off the filter as I had to cult them too to allow for more space.
Then, connected the electricity cables to the new pump.

Older Leslies super pump was getting loud ( bearing) and the impeller casing was leaking causing much unwanted air in the giltration dyste

Disconnected power.
Moved power from old pump to new. (Wires match up) Unscrewed fittings to filter and suction lines(s) reused existing pool plumbing and connected to new prime pump. Included adapters 2-1.5” were spot on. EZ swap out as all
heights of the pump are the same.
Primed new pump, switched on, checked for leaks. Now a super quiet sealed filtration system is running st 100% 👍🏻

Old pump died a rusty death

Written on 3/31/2018 by Guest

I was replacing the pump, pump motor and filter unit all at the same time.
I took lots of pictures of the existing setup for reference before I started.
I used a saws-all to cut the pipe from the pool into the pump and the pipe from the filter back to the pool to remove the old unit.
I had purchased all of the PVC connections and couplings from the local big box store along with 8' of new pipe.
I purchased more of each piece then I planned to use, in case I screwed something up. I returned the extras when I was done. This saved me a trip in the middle of my installation!
I cleaned the ends of the pipes where I had just cut them off.
I then positioned all of the new equipment where the old equipment was located and quickly realized I needed to make some changes. I was using quick disconnect unions at all of my connections, the old system did not. They take up a little more room so the new filter would be slightly further away from the pump than the original.
I installed all four of the quick connect union pieces to the pump and filter.
I glued a quick connect to the pipe from the pool and connected it to the inlet of the pump to get the exact position of the pump set. I then measured and cut the pipe I would need to connect the pump to the filter and dry fit it all together. (Note, when dry fitting ensure that all connections are completely inserted in the couplings. After dry fitting it didn't line up. I cut my pipe down a bit to make it fit. I should have trusted my measurements. When I glued it up and the parts were fully inserted, I was short. This is where the extra pieces came came in handy.)
I continued to measure, cut, fit and glue all of the pieces until I was connected back to the return pipe to the pool.
I then wired up the pump with the existing wiring from the old system. (After inspecting and insuring is was the correct wiring for the new system.)
I let the glue cure for the next 18 hours.
The next day I primed the pump and fired it up.
The new system has been running for a week now and my pool looks amazing.
I replaced the old pump with the PureLine Prime Pool pump because the inlet and outlet positions were an exact match to the old pump. This made connecting it up to the existing pipe a breeze.
All in all it was pretty straight forward install that anybody with basic DIY skills could handle.

Needed to replace Hayward Super pump

1. Shut off the power for the pump at the breaker/ fuse panel and ensure power is off.
2. Remove wire access on old pump and remove the wires from the pump noting whether the pump is wired for 120 or 240 volts.
3. The fittings on my old pump were glued to the pump casing, I had to cut the PVC pipe as close to the pump as I could. (If your existing pump has unions on it you can skip to step 6, this will also save you time.)
4. After cleaning up the PVC pipe dry fit the pump to the existing plumbing.
5. Glue the unions to the PVC pipe, and thread the unions onto the pump casing.
6. After the PVC glue has cured (about 2 hrs) connect the pump to the pool's plumbing. Ensure the fittings are properly lined up and the couplings are tight.
7. Using the instructions provided with he pump connect the wiring to the new motor.
8. Turn power back on at the breaker/ Fuse panel
9. Prime the pump with water, and secure the lid.
10. Turn on the pump and check for leaks.
