I just bought a variable speed motor from you guys and I'm installing it on a Dura Glas pump. It's a 1.65 v-green, variable from 600 to 3450 rpm. What impeller should I be using?
 Reply

A  Answered on 9/26/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Would recommend using impeller part # C105-137 PEB.

What is the flange size for the 4 mounting bolts center to center for the bolts?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/18/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Ed - All 48Y and 56Y square flange inground pump motors have the same bolt pattern. The distance center to center on the bolt holes is 5".

Can you use the impeller off of your old motor?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/19/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Len - Yes, as long as the impeller is in good condition and is designed for a motor that is 1.65 total HP or less.

Can this motor be installed on a 2 HP Pentair Whisperflo pump?
 Reply

A  Answered on 11/21/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Yes, it can be used on a 2HP Whisperflo but you would have to change the pump impeller. The 2HP impeller is too heavy for the ECM16SQU. The impeller that you would need is Pentair part number 073128 (5074-27B).
 Reply


?     Asked on 1/17/2015by Rod

I would like to install this motor on my square flange Pentair 3/4 HP pump. From what I can see, it will fit and I have the right impeller. Is this correct? Along with the shaft seal, is there anything else I should look at or change while I am in there?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/19/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

Hello Rod - The ECM16SQU will work with your pump and impeller. Besides the shaft seal, we would recommend replacing the diffuser o-ring and housing gasket.

My pump motor died and wanted more power.

Written on 2/1/2023 by Guest

1. Shut off power to the pump at the breaker to prevent shock.
2. Remove the electrical whip from the rear of the motor.
3. Remove the clamp assembly bolts holding the seal plate to the pump housing. Remove the assembly and place on something that you can work on. (Bench or Something)
4. Remove the diffuser.
5. Using an Allen wrench to hold the rear of the motor shaft and prevent motor shaft rotation.
6. With Motor locked, rotate the impeller to remove it.
7 Remove the pump seal plate with Large Socket
8 Remove the mechanical pump seal from the seal plate and impeller.
9. Using the Go-Kit i bought from the site, replace the mechanical pump seal.
10 Then i took the new motor and attached the seal plate with the original bolts.
11. Using the same Allen wrench as before, lock the motor so you can attach the impeller. Make sure the Impeller is sized for the new motor. If its the same HP then the impeller from the original pump will work, otherwise use this site to help you get the right size. I find that hand cranking as hard as i could works.
12 Take the new motor assembly to the pump area and attach back to the pump housing with the original bolts.
make sure the seal is seated correctly.
13. Wire up the motor with the electrical lines from the old motor.
14 Turn on the breaker for power
15 Turn on the pump to test for leaks and make sure that it works.

My original pump was still running but wanted a variable speed pump to be self sufficient and save money on my electric bill. I haven't had it long enough to see if my bill will go down but I really like the operation of the new pump. Alot quieter than my old pump. I kept my old pump in case of emergency. So far so good.

Noisy bearing from current pool motor

Written on 1/10/2022 by Guest

After contacting INYO Pools, I received some very helpful advice from Rich Nagle at
Inyo Pool Products. He did some research and determined that the ECM16SQU is compatible with my current pump. Thank you Rich for your hard work... The replacement of the old motor was straight forward. I followed the step-by-step instruction video on INYOPools.com. They were very clear and easy to use. The programming of the controller instruction video was also very thorough and straight forward. It took me about two hours.

Replaced bad vgreen 270 with 165

Written on 8/17/2021 by Guest

This is probably not a common scenario, but I had a 270 motor and the bearings went out after the warranty expired. It was my fault anyway by not installing the seals properly. I wanted to replace it with the smaller motor, but I wanted to use the 270 user interface on the new motor. Vgreen support said it was not compatible because the wiring harness was different.
I looked at the specs and the only difference is that the 165 provides 12 volts to the interface and the 270 interface requires 10 volts.
I measured the current when the interface was connected to the old motor and it was 100 ma.
I inserted a 20 ohm 1/2 watt resistor between the RS plug and the wire connecting to the UI. The RS interface is the same in both cases except the voltage. The resistor dropped the voltage to 10 volts and the user interface works perfectly.

Older Single Speed Pool Motor Failed

Written on 6/29/2020 by Guest

Needed to replace pump or motor. Knowing that the replacing the pump would take piping adjustments including replacing valves I decided to go with replacing the motor.
InyoPools was extremely helpful in assisting me via chat in finding a replacement motor that would fit my pump and be the right speed and power for my pool.

My current motor was a 1.5 HP with at 1.1 Service Factor, yielding a max 1.65 HP.
They helped me find the right replacement once I gave the specifics about my pump, an old American UltraFlo.

Rather then ordering a single speed pump at around $200+, I opted for the Variable Speed Motor at twice the price. From a cost perspective it was a wash since my energy supplier (PECO) in PA is offering a $200 rebate for replacing single speed motors with efficient variable speed ones. So I went with this one.

It is a great motor and itself was easy to install once I had all the parts I needed, i.e. Gasket Go Kit with motor seal and o-rings necessary.

In my specific case, I was not able to re-use the seal plate for the pump, as I was unable to remove it from the old motor, so I had to purchase a new seal plate. InyoPools helped me out with that product as well.
Motor is installed and working well.

Replace bad motor on the pump

Written on 4/17/2020 by Guest

I looked hard and long for a variable speed motor for my pool pump. I asked if this motor would fit on my pump. I was told yes. I was even given the right part number for the gasket kit needed to put the motor in. Got the pump motor in a couple of days. Took the old motor off. Read the instructions and had the pump motor on and running in a couple of hours. Programed the pump to what I needed it to run for. Started the pump up and it has run great since I put it on. Nice an quiet.

The motor seized. It was a single speed

Written on 3/9/2020 by Guest

First of all I bought all the tools needed to the other side of the house which weren’t too many. I remembered watching the tutorial that was linked to me by the company and there was no issue whatsoever as I followed the instructions from memory. Even programming the variable speed was easy. It seems I was worried for nothing.

Old motor burnt out

Written on 12/29/2019 by Guest

Decided to go with a variable speed motor to save energy cost. Replacing the motor and seals was a chore. The new motor must of been a little longer than the old one so the power wires were short. Had to buy new wire and replace it. Ran into a few unexpected problems along the way but got the job done.

No problems, delivered in 3 days, installed in 3 hours. Runs as advertised.

Written on 11/25/2019 by Guest

Decided to do some plumbing alterations before installing pump. Discharge (outlet) of pump was a hard 90 over top of old motor (in line) and in the way. Turned pump new outlet 90 degrees from axis of motor allows easy access of control module on motor.

Took me a few moments to figure out which electrical wires on the breakers was red and black, both lines coming off breakers were same color. Line feeding breakers from house, one red and one black, indicated which breaker/line was which.

I choose to eliminate my mechanical timer between breaker and motor, since motor module has 24 hour timer. Curious what the pros do in this situation. Also installed new wire from breaker to motor, old single strand wire (27 years) was stiff/brittle. Used same gauge (rated 12 AWG) new multi-strand wire.

Bought new weather tight conduit/wire connector from local hardware store to connect conduit/wire to motor control module. Motor installation was relatively straight forward, both wiring and I mounted it on the old (27 years) Duraglass motor mount.

I bought a new pump seal with the motor. Seemed prudent if your investing in new motor and time to replace it, might as well install new pump seal. Motor running nicely.
