Model # PL1611

Product Description

Same Quality as Hayward, Pentair, Sta-Rite, Jandy, Jacuzzi & Waterway!

The PureLine Pure Flow pool pump is one of our favorite pumps. This work-horse is designed to be energy efficient, quiet, dependable and all of this at a great price. The Pure Flow is designed and manufactured according to all the requirements of CSA and ETL.

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.


Salt Friendly Features:

  • Corrosion Resistant O-Rings
  • Corrosion Resistant Gaskets
  • Corrosion Resistant Shaft Seal
  • Dual Voltage Switch
  • Ultra Heavy Duty Pump

Salt Friendly Benefits:

  • Great for Salt Pools
  • Extra Long Life on Seals and Gaskets means No Leaking
  • Great as an upgrade for Non-Salt Pools

Will this replace my Hayward 1hp system? See photo.


A  Answered on 6/3/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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?

    • Commented on 6/6/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      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.

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.

A  Answered on 4/29/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

A  Answered on 4/25/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

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. Thank you

Advantage of using 230v vs 115v?

A  Answered on 3/19/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

Good afternoon, the advantage of using a pump at 230 would be the amp draw. At 110 this units draws 18 amps at 230 volts the unit draws 9 amps.
