Hi Peter, You would need the BN25V1 1 HP Hayward Power Flo Motor You would also need a tunue up kit, there are two tune up kits for variious Power Flo-Pumps the Power Flo 1500 Tune Up Kit and the Power Flo 1700 Tune Up Kit. Could you post a couple of photos of your pump and we could help let you know which one you need.

Thank You

Thanks for your prompty response and advice. I took the old motor apart and with the help of a lot of WD40, I was able to get it going again. Let's see how many more years I can get out of it. Thanks for your help.

Hi, the old motor run for about 2 days, it was leaking water and running extremily hot, than it stopped. I tried a used sand filter that my brother-in-law got for me, but after a week, the water refused to get clear and I just hated. Nothing like my old DE filter which would give sparkling water in 24 to 48 hours.

Note the horizontal connection of the motor to the filter. I think to take the motor apart from the basket will be difficult, so rather than buying only the motor and the tune-up kit, I would like to buy the full assembly with the attached basket.  Which unit would you recommend as a replacement? I have been seeing most units with vertical connection to the filter, do you carry a similar unit with the horizontal connection?

Thanks

Hi Peter,

I'm sorry to hear that you couldn't get that to work. You would need this 1 HP Power Flo LX Pump the discharge port on this pump can be rotated. Here is a Guide on How to Rotate the Discharge Port of your Power Flo Pump which I think you will find helpful.

Thanks

Patrick

Hi Patrick, thank you for your prompt reply. I'm concerned about all the step I need to do in order to rotate the discharge port. Since I'm buying this unit new, could you have your technicians make the rotation?  I'm not a very handy person and I'm afraid that I will screw up something in the process. Please lert me if that is possible and I will place the order as soon as I get your reply.

Thanks again,

Peter

Hi Patrick, do you know the whereabouts of the pump I ordered. UPS Tracking details shows me that it left Melbourne, FL on the 14th, it was delivered and received in Longwood, FL at 9am on the 15th, and I guess it has been seating there since, because i have not received any further communications, except an invitation by INYOpools.com to review the product that I have yet to receive.  I thought the rotation was going to be a simple process.  Please, let me know when I can expect to receive the pump.

Thank you

Hi Peter,

We did receive the pump and we have rotated the discharge port for you. The pump did ship out yesterday from Florida and it looks like it will be delivered to you on Friday. Sorry for the longer than expedited shipping as the warehouse has been quite backed up.

Thank You

Patrick

Hi. Pretty certain the bearnings are shot on my Jacuzzi Magnum so I plan to by your motor 

I want to make sure to buy the seal and anything else recommended. Looking for that part #. It's a salt water pool and I saw somewhere that that makes a difference.

PS - also, please let me know if I order Monday what delivery to Buffalo would be.

Please advise so I can purchase asap.

thanks!

Hi Lonbeme,

We don't have a Salt seal kit for your Jacuzzi Magnum but we do carry a salt shaft seal. For your replacement, I would suggest the Jacuzzi Magnum Salt Shaft Seal and a Jacuzzi Magnum Housing O-Ring and you should be all set. I would estimate 3-4 business days for delivery.

Thank You

hi- your site has some great advice .  i read your section on upgrading motors and would like to know if i can replace my (dead) sta-rite c48k2pa105, 115/230 volt, 1 hp, , sf 1.25 motor with one of the century variable speed motors without having to replace the entire pump.  pool = 16,000 gallon.

thanks in advance for your time!

Hello TNBadger - You can replace your Sta-Rite C48K2PA105 with a variable speed motor. The correct Century model would be ECM16SQU.

We can recommend a seal kit if you know the Sta-Rite model name (Dura-Glas, Max-E-Glas, Dura-Glas II. Max-E-Pro, etc.)

 I need a replacement pump motor. I currently have a Marathon pump motor Mod#5kc38sn6084ax   Cat #C1245  It is marked as a frame 56Z ..the search leads me to  a century motor but has a 56Y frame. Will this work? Please let me know what motors I can use, including any energy efficient ones that are available. 

InyoRob posted this 02 November 2016

Hello Bob123 - In your case, the 56Y will replace the 56Z frame. The direct replacement for the C1245 is motor model B2853. The B2853 is a standard efficiency model. The most energy efficient option is the Century V-Green ECM16SQU. This is a 1.65HP variable speed motor. The total HP is higher on the ECM16SQU than your current 1HP uprated motor. However, it is still a much more efficient motor. As you can see from the chart below, running the motor on lower speeds will significantly reduce power consumption.

V-Green Power Consumption

If i opted for the vgreen motor, would i have to replace the impeller as well.

InyoRob posted this 03 November 2016

Bob123 - You would not need to change your current impeller. The only parts we would recommend replacing are the seals. If you let us know the make and model of the pump, we can recommend a seal kit.

Replacing a pool motor for whisperflow unit.  The impeller on the original is held onto the motor with a large phillips screw.  It will not come lose. Follwing the video it said use a wrench to hold the shaft on one end and  channel locks to losen the impeller end.  Now the impeller which is a hard platic is cracked.  Any thoughts?  Should I drill out the screw and get a new impeller?

 

Thanks

Hello alan0829,

When trying to remove the impeller screw please remember it is reverse threaded, so you will need to turn right to loosen it from the motor shaft. If you have tried but it still will not come loose, then you will most likely need to drill out the screw. Here is a parts list link for the Pentair / Purex Whisperflo Parts list that will include a replacement impeller, motor, and seal kit available for your pump. Let us know if we can help further. Thank you for the question!
