Product Description

Power-Flo Matrix Above-Ground Pump Series

The Big news in above-ground pumps is the PowerFlo Matrix by Hayward. It features an industrial-size strainer basket to collect a lot of debris without a lot of maintenance.

The high-quality Noryl impeller offers wide openings to prevent leaf and debris clog. While this pump is impressively equipped, the PowerFlo Matrix is also very efficient. It has a heat-resistant, double-size seal and a protected rear-mounted switch for high-energy efficiency. Plus, its heavy-duty, high-performance motor provides years of trouble-free operation thanks to an integrated automatic thermal overload protector. PowerFlow Matrix clearly the superior choice in above-ground-pool pumps.

The Power-Flo Matrix has been engineered as a uniquely superior above-ground pool pump. With a single push of a button, this truly versatile pump changes from a veritical to a horizontal discharge and back again. Its large profile and integrated styling makes the Power-Flo Matrix a swimming pool pump like no other.

I see different answers in the Q&A for this product. How many amps does this motor draw? I have a 15 amp GFCI, one of the answers states 16 amps on high so it has me worried.

A  Answered on 2/28/2022 by InyoPools Product Specialist Craig C.

Hello Scott.  Hayward Technical Service recommends a 20 amp breaker with GFCI plug protection be used in conjunction with the Hayward Pool Products PowerFlo Matrix Pump 1.5 HP Dual Speed model SP15932S.  The SP15932S Pool Pump is rated at 15 amps on high speed.

Would this pump be a good replacement for my old 1/2 hp single speed pump (115AC). If not what would be?


A  Answered on 5/23/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Dennis, No this pump would not be a good replacement pump as it is a Non Self Priming Pump and you will need a self priming pump. I would suggest this 3/4 HP Waterway Champion Pump as a good replacement for you.

    Does this come in a dual speed version? Thanks.

    • Commented on 5/24/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

      Hi Dennis, the 3/4 HP version does not come in a dual-speed but there is a 1.5 HP Dual Speed that would work for you. Here is a link to the 1.5 HP Dual Speed Waterway Champion Pump

      • Commented on 5/24/2021 by Product Owner

        Ok..how about a dual speed that is 115vac?

        • Commented on 5/24/2021 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

          Hi Dennis, Your best bet is going to be a variable speed. So instead of just have two speeds to choose from 1725 and 3450 (i.e. dual speed), on a variable speed you literally have thousands of speeds to choose from (anything between 600-3450 RPM). I would suggest this 1.4 HP Waterway Variable Speed Pump which can be wired 115V.

Do you have PowerFlo Matrix Pump 1.5 HP Dual Speed - SP15932S for 220v?, if so, what is the price?. Thanks.

A  Answered on 11/10/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Abel, unfortunately, these Hayward Powerflo Matrix pool pumps do not come in 220/240 voltage. That voltage is most commonly associated with inground swimming pool pumps. 

?     Asked on 5/10/2020by Walter Moser

I have a 12' round pool (52 inches deep) and it is connected to a Hayward Power-Flo 1hp (single speed) Matrix pump. It works fine but is loud and is 8 years old. I am considering a replacement but because I live in California I am required to replace it with a 2-speed unit. What do you recommend?

A  Answered on 5/10/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Walter, I think this W3SP15932S will be your best option. Or if you just want to replace your motor then you could go with this 1 HP Dual Speed Replacement Motor and this Shaft Seal and this Dual Speed Switch.

What size of union connector do I need to connect this pump to the skimmer and filter? We are currently using 1.5 pvc pipes for our pool plumbing.

A  Answered on 12/21/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Leia, the union connectors for this Hayward PowerFlo Matrix pump that can have 1.5 inch PVC glued into them is part number 2110-12

?     Asked on 4/24/2020by Humphrey Michael

How do you switch the motor speed?

A  Answered on 12/22/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Hi Humphrey, this pump will have a toggle switch on it for changing the motor speeds. 

?     Asked on 4/13/2020by Aaron

Would this pump work well with the W3S244T sand filter?

A  Answered on 10/15/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Andy O.

Hello Aaron- On High speed, this pump will be too powerful for you. I would recommend something like the Power-Flo II 1 HP 1-Speed Pump - SP1780 - W3SP1780 based on the GPM rating of 62 on the W3S244T.

?     Asked on 12/14/2019by Shawn Baylor

Currently have a 30' diameter pool 52" deep with a dual speed Hayward pump part #7-193347-01. It is making a squealing noise I thought maybe a bearing was going out. The pump has been running 6 months a year on high for 8 to 10 hours per day for six years. It is hooked up to a salt system. Do you think it could be repaired or has it run its course? Also should I be running it on high or could I use the low speed? What pump do you suggest I get to replace mine if need? Thank you.

A  Answered on 12/16/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Shawn. The squealing noise is almost certainly failing bearings. The bearings (10000379) or the motor (SPX1515Z2ES) can be replaced. You can run your pump on low speed if it will provide sufficient water flow. This PowerFlo Matrix Pump - W3SP15932S can be use as a replacement. 

?     Asked on 4/2/2019by Brad

Hi-- I'm interested in the Hayward SP15932S 1.5HP and the Hayward SP15922S 1HP. What is the current (Amperage) draw of both of these at full speed? At 1/2 speed? What is the flow rate (GPM) for each of these at half speed and 10ft head? Thanks! full speed flow rates: SP1592 86 86 75 58 27 SP1593 91 91 80 62 32

A  Answered on 4/16/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Brad. The Matrix 1.5 HP Pump - SP15932S amps are 11.0/2.9. The Matrix 1 HP Pump - SP15922S amps are 10.8/2.8. As for the flow rate on low speed, I was not able to locate that data anywhere. 

?     Asked on 11/19/2018by dan

I am installing an ag 18x54 pool with a main drain. I was thinking about a two speed motor 1.5/.75 hp. Is this the one I would need or would you recommend another? Also, I was thinking about going with a 220v motor. I have the ability to use either voltage.

A  Answered on 11/29/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Jamie H.

Hi Dan, the Hayward Matrix Pump 1.5 HP Dual Speed - SP15932S will work well for your application.

?     Asked on 8/20/2018by Bill

Is this pump California OK.

A  Answered on 8/20/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. Yes, it is. 

?     Asked on 6/28/2018by Jon

My current pump is a dual speed 1.5hp with a twist lock cord. I noticed this one says it is 3 prong? Is this pump available with a twist lock cord, or can it easily be switched from one pump to the next?

A  Answered on 6/29/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

The Matrix dual speed pumps do not come with the twist lock cords but you can change it to cord part number 5111-26

?     Asked on 4/12/2017by Mike

Will the ST15932S work on a hot tube. I do not need the strainer/ basket it is built in to the tube. The motor was a Hayward SP1515-Z-24-E 115v 1.5-.18 3450/1725 rpm. The tube has the high/low switch for the jets. It is a 4 prong with red to high and black to low.

A  Answered on 4/12/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, the SP15932S will replace your current SP1515.

Do any of these pumps have a decent warranty if purchased online. Looking to replace a starite P2R

A  Answered on 11/4/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

The Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro would be a great replacement for your current Sta-Rite Dura-Glas. There is a 1.5HP dual speed option as well, part number P6RA6YF206L.

?     Asked on 8/30/2016by Marty

Hi, my Hayward model sp57152cp is shot. From looking at replacement pumps the sp15932s seems to be the best choice, I think? With my old pump the 2 speeds are controlled with a rocker switch, low-off-high. Does the dual speeds on the sp15932s work the same way?

A  Answered on 8/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, it has a toggle switch that allows you to switch from high to low and low to high.

?     Asked on 6/12/2016by Matt

Hi, I have the Hayward SP 1515. I want to connect the ground wire. Does it get connected to the screw under the on off switch? Thanks, Matt

A  Answered on 6/19/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Matt, The ground wire which is "green" is located near the power terminal and bonding lug is located under the motor end cover near the on/off switch.

?     Asked on 4/8/2016by Hank

I am replacing my old Sta-rite pump that has burned out. It was a JWPS5FL-A2. I am using a Sta-rite sand filter T-210WF. 2.18, 44 gpm,20, 50 psi, 200lbs sand. I have ordered a Hayward Matrix Powerflo 1.5 dual speed pump as a replacement. My pool is 46x18 oval at 52 high. I am trying to go with this pump due to the energy savings and looking at solar. All my pluming is hard piped. I have a Union on the pump to filter line for easier repair or replacement. Is this a good match or will it work ok?

A  Answered on 4/9/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Hank, The Hayward SP15932S model pump is a good replacement pump. I'm not certain if the hose with connector will match up if not you will need the MPT to Buttress Adapter.

?     Asked on 3/29/2016by Chris

I have a 42ft x 22ft oval with 52in walls. Will this 1.5 hp pump be sufficient or do I need a 2hp?

A  Answered on 3/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Chris, This 1.5 HP pump would be sufficient for a pool your size depending on your size filter and desire run time.

?     Asked on 10/11/2015by Al

I am replacing my 1.5 HP broken pump with a Hayward pump. Given that I have a small size pool (in the order of 15,000 gallons), feeding Hayward star clear plus filter system C12002. I have both intake and discharge to be 2 inches. The 1.5 hp Hayward pumps are all 1.5" intake and discharge. There s 2 hp pump with 2" requirement fulfilled but it sounds too much. What do you suggest ?

A  Answered on 10/13/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

With a C12002 model filter you do not want to go any stronger on your motor for that is too much pressure. Though the ports are 1.5 inches on that pump you can still install it with 2 inch lines. You just need reducer fittings to install.

?     Asked on 9/6/2015by Aidan

Is this pump single phase or 3 phase?

A  Answered on 9/7/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Aidan, The Hayward Matrix Pump 1.5 HP Dual Speed is a single phase pump, a 3 phase model is not available.

?     Asked on 8/7/2015by Joe

I came home today and turned on the pool pump Hayward model SP15932S it just makes a humming sound on either speed. It was working fine when I turned it off this morning do you think it's the motor or that the pump impeller may have jammed somehow?

A  Answered on 8/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Joe, You can take apart the pump and inspect it but it sounds like the motor capacitor or entire motor needs to be replaced. You can view our blog on Pool Motor Troubleshooting for more detail info.

?     Asked on 7/8/2015by Mark Kassel

My pump died on a 24ft above ground pool. Filter on pool i previously upgraded to Hayward S180t, however at that time i did not replace the original waterway 1hp pump unit. From reading online I find that a Hayward 1.5hp pump is what the replacement should be. Question I have is why would I want a 2 speed vs a 1 speed, it appears Hayward makes this setup in either or speed.

A  Answered on 7/10/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Mark, A dual speed pump will allow operate your pool on a lower speed to save on energy cost, you will have to have the pump run longer but you will save on energy versus a single speed pump.

Need to replace my Sta-Rite Model JWPAS5F-2A4 pump and motor (motor model S48B74A03 HP 1.5 with 2" inflow and discharge. Is this pump and motor a good replacement? Can I get it with 2" rather then 1.5" intake?

A  Answered on 6/4/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

I would actually suggest the Sta-Rite Dynamo Pump here as it is very similar to your JWPA pump which will mean the plumbing will be easier. The Dynamo pump does have 1-1/2" ports but we do carry 1-1/2" x 2" unions which would easily adapt this pump for 2" plumbing.

?     Asked on 5/21/2015by Jose

Currently the Hayward on now not working, it is a 2HP, should I remain 2HP or can I use a 1.5HP?

A  Answered on 5/21/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Wes B.

Jose, If you're current pool pump is a 2 hp you should replace it with a 2 hp. You do not want to run into complications with the pool if the 1 1/2 hp is not strong enough.

A  Answered on 7/4/2006 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This pump runs on 115V power. This unit comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. If the pump needed repair, you would call Hayward directly and they would put you in touch with a warranty service station in your area.
