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.
I am replacing my pump and it's currently got 1.5" piping. Is there a way I can get this pump (with the 2" piping) to work with it?
This pump is only available in 2" ports however If you have 1.5" pipe it is not a problem to go up to the 2" ports on this pump and this can be accomplished by the purchase of two standard pipe fittings which can be purchased at your local hardware store. The problem would occur if you had 2" pipe reducing down to 1.5" ports as this causes a bottleneck, however going from 1.5" pipe up to 2" ports does not cause any issues.
Can you help me find replacement seals for this Pentair Whisperflo pump?
We have 2 different tune-up kits for the Pentair Whisperflo. The first one is for a standard pools and the second one is for saltwater pools. The saltwater tune-up kit comes with a heavy duty shaft seal and can be used on all Pentair Whisperflo pumps.
Is Up Rated ok or is Full Rated better? Would a energy efficient 1 horse power Full Rate be better than a 1.5 horse power Up Rated??
Hello Eddie. We get this question a lot. Full and Up Rated motors were the industries first attempt at making motors more efficient. This was before 2 speed and variable speed arrived. This is a link to and explanation of How To Understand True Pump Horsepower - Up Rated vs Full Rated. I believe it will answer all of your questions.

Pros: It is so quiet ...
Cons: None !
I have to thank INYO for the quick response to my order. I was in desperate need of a new pump and their unbeilevable turn around time on my order saved the day. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!!! I feel fortunate to have found this site. The price was the best I could find. And their service was even better. Kudo's to INYO. You have my respect and my business going forward. This is a really good pump, I'm very happy with it ... it's so much quieter than our last pump. I have to look at the waterfall so I know that the pump is on.
(5 out of 5 stars) Best price we found out there!!!

Pros: Exactly what we ordered!
Cons: A bit tentative to order online
We needed to replace our original pump motor for our inground pool. It lasted a good fifteen years! We wanted to do so with the same make & model so as to be able to hook it up without having to re-do any of the pipe fittings. We checked with our local pool supply company, and found the price to be twice as much!
