Thank you for your prompt response to my last question. I have one more. The WF-26 pump I currently have operates with an Intermatic timer. if I upgrade with the Whisperflow VS motor upgrade kit, can I bypass the Intermatic timer?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/4/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hello Joel, yes you can bypass or just leave your Intermatic timer on with no trippers and just use your variable speed pump internal 24 hour clock for your running programs.

Why do I need a new impeller when I upgrade to this kit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/27/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello.  The new Impeller is included in the Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit - 1.65HP - MKIT32VS16 in order to provide the correct Impeller mating to the VS Motor's horsepower.   Impellers are rated for horsepower and must be mated with motor horsepower to produce the desired pump performance.

I do not know which whisperflo pump i have because the sticker faded. So I am not sure if the upgrade kit is compatible. My replacement pump i currently have is US motor 56y 1.5 HP 230 volt square flange (if this helps). Also, if i were to replace my single motor to this VS motor, would I have to change my pump or any other piping along with this new upgrade motor? A local pool guy said he will come and change "everything" but wasn't sure if he meant all pipes just to make the new motor work.

Hello Tony.  The Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit - 1.65HP - MKIT32VS16 would be compatible with the Pentair Whisperflo Pool Pump with the 1.5 Hp motor.  The MKIT32VS16 contains all the necessary parts, seals, and gaskets to complete the motor change.  Your current Whisperflo Pump Body will remain installed, no plumbing alterations are necessary.  If you wished to transition to a new variable speed pump, the replacement would be the Pentair SuperFlo® VS 1.5 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump - EC-342001

?     Asked on 4/24/2022by Tim

Is this compatible for Whisper Flow WF-28?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/25/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello Tim.  The Pentair Whisperflo model WF-28 has a total horsepower (THP) of 2.20.  The Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit MKIT32VS16 has a variable speed motor/drive rated at 1.65 THP.   If the pool's circulation demands can accommodate a 0.55 horsepower reduction, the MKIT32VS16 is compatible.  If the pool's circulation demands can not accommodate a 0.55 horsepower reduction, the VS Motor Upgrade Kit MKIT32VS27, 2.7 THP is the better selection.  Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit - 2.7HP - MKIT32VS27

Hello Bruce.  The Pentair Whisperflo WFE-6 has a total rated horsepower of 2.20.  The Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit 1.65 HP model MKIT32VS16 is a compatible replacement if the circulation demand of your pool can accommodate the 0.55 drop in horsepower and subsequent drop in water flow.  If the pool has Solar Heating (single or two-story) water features (fountains, waterfall), the Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit 2.7 HP MKIT32VS27 would be the better selection. Pentair Whisperflo VS Motor Upgrade Kit - 2.7HP - MKIT32VS27

If I replace my two speed Whisperflo motor with this VS, what will I do with my current timer/switch? Does it get bypassed completely and I just use the programming on the motor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/14/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Rich N.

Hi Blaine, the new variable-speed motor has its own timer onboard, so you can keep it powered up all of the time and bypass your old timer.  View our article on How to Save Money Using a Variable Speed Motor for tips on how to set it up properly for maximum savings on your electric bill.
