Pure Flow Salt Friendly
As salt pools become more popular we have built a pump specifically designed for the demanding water conditions of saltwater pools. The most common area of failure on pool pumps is caused by leaking from the shaft seal, o-rings and gaskets. Saltwater and Chlorine can be particularly harsh on these components.
The Pure Flow Salt Friendly uses an Upgraded Corrosion-Resistant Material called Viton for the shaft seal, o-rings and gaskets. This ensures that your pool pump will be running great for years to come so you can enjoy your crystal clear pool.
Great for Non-Saltwater Pools too!
The Pure Flow Salt Friendly is also great for Non-Saltwater pools. This pump is an excellent Heavy Duty Upgrade for Non-Saltwater pools and is our recommendation for all pools.

I just bought this pump in June of this year and its beginning to get louder then what it was a couple of months ago. I measured the sound reading and it's at 76 decibels. What do you think is going on and should it be replaced.
Hi, Bruce. The only thing that could be wrong is the bearings failing. We do not have stock at this time so send a replacement. We can get it back and issue you a refund or you can use it until completely fails. We're getting in, however, not sure exactly when.
I am looking for a replacement motor for my pool pump SMF-110. I have a saltwater pool. The new pump/motor was installed a year ago. It will not start (not capacitor). The defective motor is covered with rust which i believe was caused by the humidity and salt water.
Why is this called a "Salt Friendly" pump? Is this the type of pump i should have had? Is this pump recommended for salty environment and salt water pools?
Hi, Delroy. This pump is built with a heavy-duty shaft seal that is designed to operate in a saltwater water environment. It will provide additional protection. This Pump performance-wise is not a good replacement for the SMF-110 pump.
hello, I was wondering if this pump "PURELINE 1.5H.P." work to replace the one have, here's a picture of the spec's of my old pump.
i purchased pump number pl1611, on the pump it says pl1135, however is this the right pump and also i cant get it prime to save my life everything is working however the pump has no suction. the pipes have been checks and are clear.
Is this an appropriate match for a 20x40 inground saltwater pool with level yard - 1st skimmer 35 ft away- return port 50 ft away- pvc connect is 1 1/2". Currently replacing hayward super pump which only lasted 2 seasons- not sure if early burnout was due to incorrect size for needs?-(unable to read most info (HP-can't read) model ends in K2N143B1 - AMPS 1(?).0/7.5 - HZ 60 and the #SP1607Z1M
I am not so concerned as to why the pump failed, but really need to know of a 1 1/2 HP pump with 2 inch value will cause any problems using a conversion to the current 1 1/2 inch lines.
John, It can, however, that is based on the type of pump that you're using. If the pump is cavitating, then the pump is too large for the application.
I have a Harris 1.5 in ground pool pump salt water. Motor needs to be replaced. Do you have just the motor?
Guys I have a Vertical float tank 300 gallons, 30% salt this pump can handle that type of density and salt?
Bruno, yes the 1.5 H.P In Ground Pool Pump Salt Friendly - PL1611 will be able to handle this density and salt and operate your float tank.
I need to replace a Pentair 340039. Is this a drop in replacement?
I have an 18'x36' in ground salt. Do I need 1 or 1.5 hp? The label on the super pump is worn away.
When the pump quits I will get the #. Don't want to chance taking it apart . thanks
Hi, I’ve got an old Hayward superpump C48K2N143B1 1.hp that is beyond repair . I’m wondering if this pump would work. Pool is 11x24, 10,000 gal. Pentair DE filter. I don’t want to spend as much as a Hayward for replacement. Thanks
Would you be able to advise why going up by .5 hp would not be compatible with a pool system? My filter is a pentair fnsp 60 as seen in photo. Would there be any reason going up .5 hp would be an issue and if so would you be able to advise why?
Will this replace my Hayward 1hp system? See photo.
Hi Jeffrey, from an output standpoint the PL1611 would be a suitable replacement for the Hayward Pump in your photo. The plumbing ports on the PL1611 are not in the exact same spot as your current pump so you will have a little re-plumbing if you go that route. If you wanted a drop in replacement then you could go with the PureLine Prime PL2621 1 HP which has the plumbing ports in the exact same spot as your current pump, meaning no replumbing. The Prime does have 2" ports instead of 1.5" ports as shown in your photo so you may have to change the adapter going into the pump but this can be purchased at a local hardware store and is an easy swap.
Can you advise as to a variable speed pump that might work?
Hi Jeffery, I would suggest the PureLine Prime PL2625 Variable Speed Pump as a great replacement to your current pump. The output will be comparable on the high speed, the PL2625 comes with the top of the line Century motor which carries an 18-month warranty and the plumbing will be pretty easy since the ports are in the same location as your current pump. You will save a ton of money on your operational costs when you switch to variable speed. If the PL2625 is more than you want to spend then the PL1615 Variable Speed Pump would be a good option as well, it will have a little less power than your current pump and carries a 12-month warranty.
Hello! My wife and I just bought a new house and the pool pump recently went out on us. We had a professional come over to diagnose the issue and he recommended we replace it with a 1.5hp pump. Would this pump be compatible? Our pool is saltwater as well.
Hi, Mike. We will need to know the model of the pump housing if you want to replace the entire pump.
Purchased a pure line pump few weeks ago 1.5 hp. Everything was fine until two days ago. Pump is working only the basket is not filling up. So reading all the material I can the obvious reason is air. So the technical data in the manual reads I have a J15008. This also matches with name plate data on the motor. I would like to replace the o-ring on the lid. The picture matches what I have so I should get a JR07501002. Is that the correct one? Hope you understand
Is your 1.5 HP in ground pool pump equal to or exceed the Hayward SP2610X15 Super Pump 1.5 HP Pool Pump spec? Including the fitting size inlet and outlet.
Hi, Tom, the PL1611 Pure Flow Pump would not be as powerful as the Hayward SP2610X15 1.5 HP Super Pump. We would suggest the PureLine Prime Salt Friendly 1.5 HP PL2622 which would be just as powerful as the Hayward Super Pump 1.5 HP. The PL2622 is a drop-in replacement for the Hayward Super Pump, the only difference is that the ports accommodate 2" plumbing where the ports on the Super Pump are for 1.5" plumbing but a standard 1.5" to 2" plumbing fitting can be used to accommodate 1.5" pipe.
I have a Whisper Flo pump, the model number is 011772. It is a 1 hp. Is this pump a suitable replacement? I plan on switching over to a salt system.
Hi, Mark. Unfortunately, this pump is NOT a suitable replacement for your Whisperflo 011772 model pump. You can use the following pump as a replacement; Whisperflo Pump 1 HP - WF-24 / 011772, Super II Pump 1 HP Single Speed - SP3007X10AZ or the Champion 1 HP Max Rate Pump - CHAMPS-110.
Hi I am considering buy pump model PL1611. I was wondering what pump it compares to and why it is being discontinued. The price is in my wheel house for a new pump. Our pool system was damaged from Hurricane Michael and trying to get the pool up and running.
