PureLine 1 HP Replacement Pool Motor for Pentair® & Jandy® brand pool pumps

Is your pool pump motor running loud, leaking or humming? These are all signs that it’s time to be replaced. The PL2853 PureLine Replacement motor is designed as a drop-in replacement motor for some of the most popular 1 HP pool pumps like the Pentair® Whisperflo, Pentair® Challenger, Pentair® Super Flo, Jandy® Stealth and many more.

The PureLine replacement motor is made of the highest quality components like sealed ball bearings, which means it is an ultra quiet motor. Because of its high-quality construction, the PureLine replacement motor is backed by a full 2-year warranty.

When it comes to replacing your motor Inyo has you covered. We have created a ton of resources to make this project a snap, like our Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor. This video walks you through all the steps to replace your motor. Most of our customers decide to tackle this project on their own, and by following our video they complete the project in about an hour.

When replacing your motor we highly recommend a tune up kit which includes all the seals and gaskets for your pump. Many times when you use your old seals you may have leaking. Seal leakage is one item which will void the motor's warranty so make sure to protect your investment with a tune-up kit. Below we have listed the tune up kits for some of the most popular pool pumps.

Sf-n1-1a. Is this correct motor for pentair superflow. Model number196238

Hi, Your pump is actually a 1 HP Full Rate Pump which is equivalent to a 1.5 HP uprate motor so you would need the PL2854 1.5 HP Up Rate Replacement Motor We do show where you purchased the 1 HP up rate motor would you like for us to bill your credit card the difference and ship out the 1.5 HP Up Rate Motor, also we would suggest this Super Flo Tune Up Kit when replacing your motor. Finally here is a Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor which you may find helpful when tackling this project. We will put your order on hold until we hear back from you on how you would like to proceed.

I have a Whisperflow (WFE-4). The current motor PN is 011513. Is this the correct replacement motor?

A  Answered on 4/20/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Greg, Your motor is a Full Rate 1 HP motor which is equivalent to a 1.5 HP up rate motor, so you would require the PL2854 Replacement 1.5 HP Up Rate Motor we would also suggest a Whisperflo Tune Up Kit when replacing your motor.

"Screaming" Pool Pump

Written on 4/10/2019 by Guest

1) I shut off the breaker in the panel for POOL.
2) I took off the cover for wires, unhooked them.
3) I used a ratchet to separate motor from the pump.
4) I used a hex key to separate the "flange" from the motor, that has an impeller.
5) I cleaned the gasket recess, lubricated it, and inserted the new gasket.
6) I cleaned up all of the impeller, housing, etc.
7) I attached the flange and impeller to the motor.
8) I attached the motor assembly to the pump.
9) I attached the wires to the motor, using a new wiring "clamp."
10) I primed the pump with about a gallon of water.
11) I reset the pool breaker, and NO more screaming motor/pump = purrs.

My factory installed pentair pump quit working.

Written on 6/30/2018 by Guest

Finding the right pump eas easy! I emailed inyopools, gave them the motor number from the factory pentair motor, and they replied back in a couple hours with three different options. I chose one and it was delivered in about 5 days.
I ordered the bearing and seal kit with my motor for an extra $30. Overall I saved $200 from purchasing at my local pool store and an additional $130 saved by doing it myself.
Install was easy and straight forward. I followed the instructions on the YouTube video from inyopools on YouTube. The only issue i had was when re installing the the impeller it is necessary to hold the shaft still with a screwdriver or pair of pliers. The motor from inyopools had a small rubber plug covering the back of the shaft that appeared to be part of the metal plate covering the back of the motor. It took some searching and experimenting to discover it. It would have been handy to have some kind of diagram or instructions in the box for that reason.
