The Badu® EcoM3 uses a state of the art permanent magnet brushless DC motor controlled by advance logic electronics. This technology greatly decreases the operating cost, lowers energy usage, and reduces noise. Perfect match for most residential pools ranging from 10,000 to 25,000 gallons. The Badu® EcoM3 continues to set standards for the future by using 100% recyclable "environment friendly" plastics. Please note: Optional Remote that is pictured is no longer available.

Would this pump work for a pond fountain? If yes, how many gph?

A  Answered on 6/2/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

This pump would work for a fountain. You would just have to clean the basket when debris gets in. The Gallons Per Minute are best represented here with this chart.  There would some other variable such as plumbing size and how far away the pump is ( Total Dynamic Head ) .

Tools Needed

Screwdriver, Adjustable Wrench, hack saw & PVC cement

8 yr old pump motor froze solid

Written on 3/25/2017 by Guest

We live near the ocean and a pump's ODP (open drip proof) motor just don't last. So I bought a variable speed TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor and pump. Installation was fairly simple:
1.) Disconnected old pump wiring ( obviously I turned the power off first, otherwise I wouldn't be typing). Screw driver and channel locks.
2.) Cut the piping to the old pump. Hack saw. Original installation had no unions.
3.) New pump inlet was 1 7/8" lower than original pump. I put a 16X16" concrete stepping stone on top of my old slab and this was the perfect height for the new pump inlet.
4.) The pump has unique unions. I add two standard PVC unions into the old piping, so in the future it will be easy to remove, and plumbed the piping back together.
5.) Did not need to mess with the wiring. The old wiring/ conduit had plenty of slack to reconnect.
6.) Turned the power back on. New pump is super quiet. Looking forward to saving some energy.
