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 this 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 and seal leakage is one item which will void the motors 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.

I purchased this motor and no paper work came with it. In particular, is there warranty information? Do I need to register the pump with the manufacturer?

A  Answered on 5/30/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Greg. No paperwork is required to be completed. Contact Inyo Pools if there is an issue with the motor for warranty purposes.

Is this pool motor a good replacement for the marathon c1246?

A  Answered on 6/25/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, this motor is a compatible replacement but maybe a wider version so the original would actually be the model USQ1152

Replaced Pentair wmf4 pool pump

Written on 10/16/2018 by Guest

Watch a ton of videos. Ponding in spring gasket part fell off and didn’t find it until the motor was installed and leaking. Also dropped brass screw while mating electrical connections and fell inside the pump. Had to take it all apart again.

Motor would not start

after very attentive consult online with people at INYO, I ordered the correct motor. I used the online DIY photos to remove the motor, remove the parts that belonged on the existing pump and switched motors. Very smooth with the help of INYO.
