What is Service Factor?
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?
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?
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 replace the motor on my pool pump but all these numbers and abbreviations on the motor label are really confusing me. What do they mean?
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. If you are still having difficulty figuring it out you can call us at our toll free number or you can send us a photo of your motor label here.
I just finished replacing the shaft seal on my booster pump. As soon as I turned the pump on water was leaking from the shaft seal. Is it defective or am I doing something wrong?
Depending on the model, the installation of a booster pump shaft seal can be slightly different than a pool pump shaft seal. Some booster pump and pool pump shaft seals require that a silicone sealant be used on the outer areas of the metal seat of the shaft seal. The seal will need to be lightly hammered into the body of the pump. You can use a 1 inch PVC coupling or a piece of 1 1/4 inch PVC pipe and a rubber mallet. This procedure will apply to any pool pump or booster pump using a >PS-1000 style shaft seal.

After 10 years of service my pool pump motor finally quit. I had replaced the seals and bearings once a few years ago. I turned off the power at the breaker removed the motor and end of pump. Removed pump impeller, installed new seal on impeller and reassembled. The new motor is so quiet that I have to put my hand on it to see if it is running.

(5 out of 5 stars) Great Customer service - packing could be better
Reviewed By: Inyo Customer ()
Incredible customer service. Delivery of pump was "ok"....took about a week, but I selected the cheapest shipping option. In the process of assembling the new pump, so I cant review the pump yet. One bit of constructive criticism: Dont use popcorn as packing material! They ended up getting shredded in the shipping process, and found their way into the pump itself. Took about 20 minutes blowing it all out. Air/bubble wrap would have made for a much cleaner unpacking experience
(5 out of 5 stars) Amazingly Fast Shipping and easy install

(5 out of 5 stars) Do it yourself, carefully

Pros: Exact replacement, easy changeout
If you have loud bearing noise in your pool pump motor, this is the fix. Just follow these steps carefully: 1. Get the model number and any information from your existing pump motor. 2. Give the motor information to inyopools and let them select the correct motor replacement. Don't guess. 3. Give the pump (wet side) information to inyopools and let them pick the correct replacement seal package and add that to your order. Do not use the old seals. 4. Follow the instructions on the inyopools site for the motor replacement. It took me 2 hours taking my time (and I am familiar with electrical wiring so I didn't have to figure that out). The motor was a perfect replacement and the seal package had all the seals I needed (plus 2 others for other applications). The support from inyopools was timely and accurate. I can barely hear my new motor when running and it works perfectly. There was no reconfiguration needed for my pool controls, it was truly a plug and play.

Pros: customer service, delivery, price
Cons: wiring instruction for DIY?
DIYfer. Needed a replacement for pool pump motor. Searched online and found this motor for an acceptable price. Customer service/ service techs were very helpful in finding the proper motor size to fit the pool pump (called a couple of times). Shipped very quickly and was able to install with little problem. Would have preferred better directions for wiring although was able to deduce correctly from how previous motor was wired.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great fit

Friendly, helpful staff. They got the exact match for the motor I needed, saved me hundreds of dollars. I would have liked an instruction or diagram included with the motor (I ended up with two extra O-rings??). Overall great buy, fast delivery and professional helpful staff!

This was ordered to replace a like motor that had quite working. Was what we ordered, installed easily, and is working well.
(5 out of 5 stars) The replacement motor you want
Reviewed By: Jimbob from Raleigh, NC ()
Pros: Easy to install
I installed this motor on a five year old Pentair pump with failing bearings. It took me under an hour and I had never done it before. It's working great and is quieter than the pump was when it was new. You should replace the seal and use the kit they sell at INYO and you can replace some gaskets at the same time.

Pros: Customer service, shipping time, price and product
Cons: None that I can think of
Best of all is the wonderful customer service help provided by Inyopools. The product was here in the time specified and the price was considerably less than the 5 other companies I checked with first. The product was as specified and ordered and hasn't given me any problems to date. It was installed about a month ago.
