What is Service Factor?

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.

What is the GPM of the Hayward Tristar pump SP3215Z1BE? Thank you

A  Answered on 1/12/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

The GPM of a 1.5HP full rated Tri-Star depends on the feet of head. At 40' of head, the pump will push 137 gpm.

I currently have the Hayward Tri-Star SP3205Z1BE pump which needs to be replaced. I have read that the replacing it with a variable speed pump will be much more efficient. 1.) If I replace the current pump with a variable speed pump, what pump would you recommend? 2.) Will it fit the current face plate attachment or would I need to reconfigure part or all of my system? Thank you, Tim

Hi Tim, Hayward now makes the Tristar Variable Speed Pool Pump which would be a drop in replacement for you current Hayward Tristar Pump making this a pretty easy DIY job. If you happen to have the Hayward ProLogic indoor control system then you would use the Hayward Tristar Variable Speed Pool Pump for Prologic Indoor Control Systems.

What is the SF of this motor (part no. 5112-256) and the amps? Also how is it differant from the motor part no. B842 Thanks

A  Answered on 6/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Richard, this Hayward Tristar replacement motor has a service factor (SF) of 1.60 for a True HP of 2.4 HP. The amp draw @ 115V is 20, @ 208V is 12 and @ 230V is 10. The B842 (B2842) can only be wired at 208V or 230V and not 115V and has a service factor of 1.47 for a True HP of 2.2 HP. If your current motor has a true HP of 2.4 and you replace with a motor which has a true HP of 2.2 then you run the risk that the smaller motor will be worked to hard and fail prematurely.

Hi , there Our motor pump that needs to be replaced is Hayward Tristar Max Rate Self Priming Pump SP3210Z1MR ..1.5 HP/1.10 SF /1.65 THP / Is this motor ( above ) compatible to replace the broken one we have ? Is there anything additional we have to purchase to replace the one we have ? Thank you ! G

A  Answered on 6/26/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes this is the correct motor replacement. At the very minimum I recommend replacing the shaft seal which you have two options on key 13 that you can view here on the Tristar's parts diagram.
