What is Service Factor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/11/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/12/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.

I'm trying to find a replacement motor for my pool pump but my model number doesn't match what you have listed as the model number. My model number begins with a C48 and yours begins with an SP. Please help.
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/18/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

What we have listed on our chart pages is the pump model number. The model number you have will just identify the motor. If you look on the plastic housing on the pump there should be a sticker which will have the pump model number. You can usually find this by the discharge port on the pump. Once you locate it you can choose the correct replacement motor. Be certain to change the shaft seal and gaskets as needed. You can use our >How to guide if you need help.

Replacing a pool pump motor is not as difficult as it seems. You can try looking here. If you need help figuring out what the information on your label means.

I replaced the bearings in my old AO Smith motor but it failed after 3 weeks.

Written on 8/13/2022 by Guest

I disconnected the power supply from my old pump motor. Removed the four 14mm bolts connecting the motor and impeller to the pump housing and removed it. I put the motor on a work bench. I then removed four other bolts that hold a cover for the pump impeller that bolt directly to the motor and removed the cover. The impeller threads onto the motor shaft and I removed it. I bought a seal kit and replaced the seals in the housing around the impeller and reassembled the motor and pump impeller. I installed the new motor with the old impeller and new seals back onto the pump housing. I also replaced a seal that goes between the pump and impeller and the actual pump housing. I reinstalled the wiring and started the pump. This motor is identical to the old gold colored AO Smith motor that I removed.

Hayward Pool Pump SP2607X10 1.0 hp bad motor

Written on 6/19/2022 by Guest

Cut off breaker at electrical panel.
Close water valves.
Remove motor electrical cover at back of motor.
Use multimeter to verify no power present.
Confirm whether existing electrical voltage is 230v or 115v (mine is 230v).
Unwire motor.
Remove four bolts that connect motor to pump.
Pull motor, with impeller still attached, away from pump housing. Carry motor/impeller to a workbench or area suitable for disassembly.
Slip a 7/16 wrench behind electrical components to prevent the motor shaft from turning.
Applying slight pressure, use the tongue and groove pliers to rotate the impeller off the threaded shaft.
This exposes 4 more bolts to release the remaining housing from the motor.
Replace seals (I used the tune-up kit).
Reverse process to install new motor.
Make sure new motor wiring matches the original setup for voltage (230v or 115).
Verify electrical connections.
Engage breaker.
Test pump function.

Original pump died

Written on 12/14/2021 by Guest

Simply put I called INYO Pools told them what I needed to do. They walked me through what they needed to know and helped me place the order. A few days later the replacement kit with all the seals arrived. Then I simply watched the INYOPools video on YouTube on how to replace my pump and followed along with their installation instruction on my phone. It was EXACTLY how they described it. It only took about an hour total from opening the boxes to the pool up and running! It really makes me wonder why my pool people here wanted $1200 for a repair that cost less than $300 and 1 hour's worth of work!

Pool pump stopped working

Written on 10/5/2021 by Guest

I looked up videos on rebuilding the pump. It was very easy and Inyopools had all the parts necessary available to me. I purchased the motor since I had the gasket and seal replacement kit already. It only took removing the 8 bolts and using a 7/16 wrench to hold the shaft in place to remove the impeller. The videos were excellent I just paused until I finished each step. I did watch the entire video first.

My pump motor stopped working.

Written on 6/21/2021 by Guest

I disconnected the mounting and seal plate that houses the motor from the pump. Then I needed to remove the impeller, in order to replace the seal assembly, that I had from a previous purchase from Inyo Pools. Once that was completed, I reassembled in reverse order to include the new motor. finally, I reconnected motor to the pump. It operates like a dream and runs smoothly and quietly.

Old pump seized..stopped working

Written on 5/30/2021 by Guest

Very straight forward process for any pool owner. Pay attention to orientation and details when removing so when installing new motor..just reverse order.
1. Shut off power to pump at breaker. Open pump/drain screws to drain any water.
2. Disconnect bonding wire by loosening screws on top of motor.
3. Remove 4 bolts holding motor in place.
4. Pull motor from housing.
5. Remove back motor housing cap to disconnect wiring. Pay attention to terminal connections and voltage selection to ensure reinstall is the same.
6. Good time to check and replace/lube all gaskets.
7. Reverse process to reinstall pump.
8. Might be beneficial to add some-water to lines so pump primes easily.

Check for leaks.
Enjoy

It's Memorial day, 80 degrees, a beautiful day and we take the winter cover off and the water is green. we need to get things cleaned up, get the pump and filter working and get the water circulating. OK, cleanup is done fire it up! What the .........the pump is frozen up and WILL NOT MOVE.

I worked on it for 2 or more hours IT WILL NOT TURN!!! Son of a...... gun. We need to order a pump motor. My wife called a certain pool company and they screwed up the whole order. She canceled them and called INYOPOOLS. She ordered a new motor and some chemicals and stuff.

The chemicals came 1st and we had to wait a few days for the motor as the water was getting greener and greener. It finally came got it all in order and is working great and was swimming again today. The info and tips you sent were a big help too.

Thanks Inyopools!!!

Motor died because cottonwood clogged the air intake over a period of 3 years.

Written on 6/7/2020 by Guest

I removed the motor from the pump housing according to the instruction manual for the Hayward Superpump. You have to carefully lay out the parts as you remove them. The impeller was the most difficult to unscrew, but it came off as per the manual. I used a new Hayward shaft seal as I put the parts back together in the correct sequence. Rewired the new motor and tested for leaks. It took more than an hour to get it up and running again. I have purchased a new motor to have on the shelf for future use.

GFI breaker kept tripping sporadically and then would not stay on at all

Written on 7/19/2019 by Guest

1. Determined that the pool pump motor was the source of the breaker tripping.
2. Ordered and received new replacement motor from Inyo Pools, ordering was easy shipping time was reasonable as expected.
3. Bought new gasket set.
4. Re-wired the pump house switch box line to the motor.
5. Installed new gasket set on motor and then installed motor. Prep, wiring, install took about 3 hours including the new wiring. GFI breaker doesn’t trip anymore sporadically, pool motor stays running, pool motor runs nearly silent now and the pool is finally open here.

Bearings in old motor finally locked up

Written on 6/14/2018 by Guest

I started by removing the motor from the box. I then Inspected the item for any visible damage. I removed the old motor from the pump. Having both motors side by side I removed the impeller, and the back of the pump housing to the motor replacing any seals as I put the parts back on. I reinstalled the parts back onto the new motor. After that was done I checked the output of the electricity and switched the motor accordingly. I reinstalled the new motor to the pump, tightened everything down and filled the pump up with water. I then turned on the electricity checked the pump for any leaks and made sure the motor ran ok.

Pool motor burn up

Written on 4/6/2018 by Guest

Before replacing the motor I cut the power off first. I also took pictures before I took the motor off and then when I took the Impala off so I could have a picture to go back and reference at anytime. Then I removed two screws on the end cap and unhooked the wires. Then I removed four bolts holding the motor to the housing. Then I replace the seals. It's always a good idea 2 replace the seals when you remove the motor for any reason . To do that I had to stop the impeller from turning by sticking a screwdriver in the end and then using my other hand to turn the impeller . Then I replaced the seals. Be sure to take note how the seals come off so you can put them back on the right way . I screwed the four bolts back in to connect the motor back to the housing. I hooked up my wires backup and then screwed the end cap back on. Cut the power on and it purred like a kitten!

pool pump was making a lot of noise

Written on 3/20/2018 by Guest

I turned off breaker to pump; removed 4 bolts that held motor in place. opened back end of pump motor , took a picture of wiring for future reference. Disconnected wiring , took old and new pumps to workbench , discharged capacitor to avoid getting shocked, loosened screw holding it in place to allow me access to the motor shaft. This allowed me to use a 7/16" wrench to hold the shaft so I could remove the impeller from the front end of motor using slip joint pliers and turning impeller CCW. removed the parts of the impeller assembly. To remove the last piece remove 4 bolts which held the impeller assembly to the motor. turn the last piece of the impeller assembly over and use a flat tipped screwdriver to remove the ceramic ring. (when ordering pump also order bearing and seal kit.) after replacing bearings and seals reassemble everything in reverse order check your wiring picture and make sure to rewire correctly. Turn on breaker and prime your pump and turn it on.

Motor failed

Written on 3/15/2018 by Russell J.

Turn off the Breaker! Disconnect wires under motor end cap. Unbolt motor from pump housing. Remove the funnel shaped housing that covers the impeller. You the slide an open end wrench on the motor shaft at the opposite end of the motor. Not the impeller end. You have to do this between a couple of the electrical components, but it’s not hard. Just work your way around until you find good access. There are wrench flats on the motor shaft. I think it’s a 7/16 wrench. Hold the shaft and unscrew the impeller counter clockwise with your hand. Remove the old shaft seal from the housing with a screw driver. Install the new seal . Make sure you have the selector switch on the motor set to you correct voltage. The motor ships set for 220v. Reassemble everything in reverse using a new seal kit. You may want to lay out everything in the order that you took it apart to ease putting it back together. Pay attention to how the shaft seal goes on.

Hayward 1hp motor burnt out.

Written on 1/25/2018 by Guest

The motor I purchased was an exact fit for the original. It was a simple matter of cutting the power and removing the old motor. The new motor was an exact fit. Simply reversed the process and in business. Kudos for a inexpensive repair.

We heard a loud grinding and then clicking noise in our brine pool motor before it stopped working.

Written on 12/21/2017 by Guest

My brother first thought the capacitor was dead, but we put in a new one, and it didn't help. He told us that we needed a new motor, and that he could take off the old one, keeping the frame. So we took a picture of the motor's specs and searched for the best price online. I found yours on your site, ordered it on 9/22/17, and it was delivered on 9/26/17. My brother took off the old motor being careful not to break the seal, installed your new motor, and it purred like a kitty cat when we turned it on. Thank you so much!

Pool Pump went out.

Written on 7/12/2017 by Guest

Well I got a price at INYOpools.com on a motor that exactly met the specs of my old Super Pump that was 1/3 the cost. I could not believe it and it came with free shipping. So I gave it a try. I watched the videos on replacing it and wallah..... It works like a charm and quieter than ever before. Great website and great online assistance.

Old Hawyad pump quit

Written on 6/20/2017 by Guest

After confirming the correct pump needed with INYO, I placed the order adding the seal kit recommended. I took on this case motivated by wanting to save over $ 300.00 from two local pool shops quotes. After watching the INYO Pools tutorial video twice I started. About three hours later it was time for the moment of truth. With a flick of the breaker and the timer switch we were back in business. The process could not have been explained any simpler than it was. INYO was right there next to me every step of the way. I used the video on my smart phone and paused it after each step to make sure I was doing it correctly. Thank you very much for providing the expert installation instructions and the online support I needed for the "Bonding Wire". I had no clue what that was but your web site resolved the questions and I finished the job.

Motor stopped working

Written on 11/17/2016 by Joseph V.

I watched the video on the disassembling of the pump motor to see if it was doable on my part which I'm happy to report it was. I then called INYO Pools to make sure I was ordering the right motor. I also ordered a new impeller and seal kit to complete the rebuild. The tech at INYO Pools was also very helpful and told me to call if I ran into any problems. I'm happy to report everything fit perfect and it took about 2 hrs to complete.
