Instead of hardwiring the pump PL 2605, can't I use the wire harness from my old Hayward pump and connect it to the PL 2605 in order to plug it into my outside receptacle
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/3/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi GK, as long as your wiring harness is 230V and not 115V then you will be fine using that as plug for this pump.

Based on the total horsepower of the current model pump that you have the better option would be the model PL2606. If you are using a standard timer that allows or cuts of the circuit feeding power to the pump then yes you can still use that timer on this replacement pump.

Hi, Andy. Using the info provided, this pump will not be a suitable replacement. The pump you have is a high head pump and this is a medium head pump. The performance scale is different. The Hayward TriStar VS Pump - SP3202VSP will be a better option.

?     Asked on 9/6/2018 by Dan

I notice on this pump the top RPM is 3450..I think my current motor is a single speed which is 3450 RPM.. will the variable have a problem with the flow rate that the heat pump needs to operate? I noticed that once the PSI got up to about 23PSI (which I assume lowered the flow rate) the heat pump had a issue with flow..not enough. I'm guessing with anything less than 3450 RPM the heat pump won't work..any thoughts?
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/7/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dan. Operating this pump at a lower RPM can provide insufficient water flow to the heater. You will have to make sure that the motor is operating at the proper RPM in order to activate the water pressure switch on the heat pump.

Would this pump be suitable for replacing a Jacuzzi Magnum 1000 pump. I have a 23000 gallon pool where there’s only a skimmer, an indirect return from the Pool bottom to the skimmer and just the two jets all on 1.5” plumbing? The pump is at same level as the pool but is 70ft away from skimmer and 50ft from the return jets. I have a 300lb sand filter and teledyne pool heater tied in. I plan to add 3-4 10ftx4ft solar panels in the near future that’ll be 12ft above the pump. Pool is perfectly clear

A  Answered on 7/21/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Gary. This pump will not be a suitable replacement for a Magnum 1000 Pump because they're two different styles of pumps which performs differently. You will need a high head variable speed pump like the Hayward Tristar VS Variable Speed Pump - SP3202VSP.

Hi there, my existing motor shows a Service Factor of 1.1 - I see that this combo shows SF 1.0 - am I ok to use this still? I currently have a Centurion motor (168453) that is going bad (bearings) and a Challenger pump of unknown age (6+). I know I already asked this, but wanted to clarify since I saw the SF variance - will this setup work for me? Also, this mentions a drop-in fit for a Hayward Super pump, but will it need much re-plumbing to match up with my Challenger?

A  Answered on 5/28/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi David, Yes the PL2605 will have a comparable Gallons Per Minute (GPM) Output as your Challenger and this would be the pump we would suggest as a Variable Speed Replacement for the pump you described. You will have a little bit of re-plumbing as the ports on the PureLine Prime are not in the exact same spot as the Challenger but it should not be too bad.

I currently have a Jacuzzi Magnum force 1.5HP Single speed, model 94027115. The unit still runs fine but I am researching options to reduce the energy requirements. I was reading that a variable speed unit would accomplish this. Do you have a recommendation? This is an inground 10,000 gallon sport pool with a Jacuzzi sand filter with a max working pressure of 50 psi. There is also a Trane heat pump in line with the system. Thank you. Phil
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/12/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Phil, This will be an awesome pump for the set up you explained. The Prime has 2" plumbing like your Jacuzzi Magnum, the plumbing ports are not in the exact same spot but they are close, meaning you will just have some minor re-plumbing. You are correct you will see big energy savings by going with a variable speed pump. With a variable speed pump you will have a full range of HP you can dial the pump into anywhere from .5 HP to 1.65 HP so for the majority of the time you will try to run the HP as low as possible to save on energy but you always have the ability to ramp up the HP as needed for things like vacuuming.

 Reply

A  Answered on 5/11/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Luis, That does seem like a large pump for the sized pool that you mentioned unless you have other things the pump is powering like spa jets or a waterfall. I really like this PureLine Prime Variable Speed Pump as it gives you the flexibility to ramp the HP all the way up to 1.65 HP if you ever ran into any demanding situations or you needed the extra HP to run a suction cleaner, spa jets or water features. The majority of the time, you would try to run the pump at the lowest HP possible while still maintaining good water clarity, this will save a ton on your power bill. I would check with your local power company to see if they are offering any rebates for switching to an Energy Star Variable Speed Pump, if they are then the PureLine Prime would qualify for Energy Star VSP Rebates. If you decided you wanted to go with a standard single speed pump then you could go with the 1 HP PL2601 PureLine Prime

We will need to know if your motor is full rated or an uprated model. That will affect the best variable speed pump we'd recommend.

Hi Tony, My suggestion would be this PureLine Prime 1.65 HP Variable Speed Pump. I really like this pump as it will save you a ton on your operational costs. The variable speed pumps also give you a lot of flexibility as they allow you run the pump from any RPM level between 600 - 3450 unlike single speed pumps where they run a the max RPM's of 3450 whenever they are turned on. This pump has 2" ports like your current whisperflow pump so you should be all set with your plumbing, however if you do need to use a reducer that is fine and would not be a problem.

 Reply

A  Answered on 4/27/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Kevin G.

Hello, Lori. The PL2605 will work for you based off of your current pump. However, I would not recommend running it at higher RPMs for extended periods of times due to the fact that it has a stronger HP than your current pump, which can damage your system.

Hi Gary, This pump would be a great replacement for your current pump and would actually be the one we suggest. With this variable speed pump you will save a ton on your power bill. Also since the PureLine Prime is now Energy Star Certified you may be eligible for additional rebates with your local power company. With not knowing the model of your Hayward pump we can't guarantee that the plumbing ports will be in the exact same location, but worst case you would just have some very minor plumbing.

Dennis, A variable speed would run almost constantly on a lower rpm without the need for a timer. You would control the rpms using the drive that is on top of the motor. A timer would only turn the pump on and off.

 Reply

A  Answered on 6/18/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Peggy, Thanks for the question! Based on all the info. you supplied I would suggest the PurelIne Prime PL2606 2.7 HP Variable Speed Pump The nice thing about the PL2606 is that you have the ability to ramp the pump all the way up to 2.7 HP if you need to for things like vacuuming, spa jets, water features, solar, etc... but for the vast majority of the time you will have the pump dialed down to a very low HP for general pool filtration and this is where you will see all of your energy savings. Typically you can see a savings of 50% - 75% operational cost savings over a single speed pump. I hope this helps!

If this pump is hooked to a timer, will custom settings be lost every time it shuts down?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/7/2017 by Product Owner

I wired ours direct and turn it on/off with the breaker. It is wired with saltwater system. It seems to do a pretty good job remembering the previous setting every time I turn it on. I only use the preset (1-2-3) or "Override" setting which is max speed, but on Override you can customize the speed. It usually remembers the preset but sometimes I have to hit the Start button. I love this pump. It was a direct fit for the old Hayward I replaced this year and was easy to install. It is quiet and does a great job pushing water. I do have to keep it on Override or setting 1 to push enough pressure for the heater to work.

Hi Michael, No if you install the PureLine on your own, then the warranty is not voided. I like the 2.7 HP Variable Speed PureLine Prime as it gives that extra HP just in case you need it. You still have the lower HP range that you can use for everyday filtration and this will really cut down on your operational cost.

I think the PL2605 would be a great option for you, especially if you are running the pump 24/7 as you can run the pump at lower speeds for longer periods of time saving your on your operational costs. You may also want to install a Pool Timer which would allow you to schedule the pump to come on and off at certain time of the day allowing you to run for say 12 hours and not 24 hours.

The PureLine Prime would not be a direct replacement to the Super II as the plumbing ports are in a slight different location meaning you might have some minor re-plumbing.

Cost of running my Single Speed pump were too high

Written on 6/21/2018 by Guest

I purchased this pump to replace my Hayward 1hp Super pump for my 25,000 gal pool. The costs of running the single speed pump for 8 - 10 hours a day from June to Mid September was killing me. The initial cost of a variable speed pump was putting me off until I found Inyo Pools and the PureLine Variable speed pump. With the Electric company rebate of $200 and reduced electrical costs, this pump has easily paid for itself in less than a year.

Installation was a breeze since it fits into the footprint of the Haywards Super Pump. All I needed to do was:
1:Uninstall the Hayward Super Pump
a: turn off the power to the pump
b: unhook the electoral wires from the super pump
c: Unbolt the super pump from the concrete footing
d: Unscrew the PVC fittings from the super pump
e: remove the super pump
2: Install the new PureLine Variable Speed pump
a: Bolt the PureLine pump to the concrete footing
b: Attach the PVC fittings to the Pureline pump
c: Hook up the electrical wires to the Pureline pump
d: Fill the skimmer basket with water
e: turn on power to the PureLine Pump
f: Push the start button on the PureLine pump
g: Program the pump per the directions

3: SAVE MONEY

That's it. I am no handyman. Although I can do minor repairs this was one of the easiest jobs I ever did.

Needed new variable speed pump

Written on 4/9/2018 by Guest

I removed the old pump, replaced with the variable speed pump. The wiring was tricky; the two holes for wiring on my old pump didn't fit the new pump setup. Luckily there were three holes for wiring on the new pump so I made an adjustment that works fine. The new pump was about one inch lower than the old pump, so I needed to raise the new pump up a little. Twenty minutes total time for the replacement.
