Prime Salt Friendly

As salt pools become more popular we have built a pump specifically designed for the demanding water conditions of saltwater pools. The most common area of failure on pool pumps is caused by leaking from the shaft seal. Saltwater and Chlorine can be particularly harsh on the shaft seal.

Upgraded Corrosion-Resistant Material

The PureLine Prime Salt Friendly uses an Upgraded Corrosion-Resistant Material called Viton for the shaft seal. This ensures that your pool pump will be running great for years to come so you can enjoy your crystal clear pool.

Great for Non-Saltwater Pools too!

The PureLine Prime Salt Friendly is also great for Non-Saltwater pools. This pump is an excellent Heavy Duty Upgrade for Non-Saltwater pools and is our recommendation for all pools.

I have a Pentair Whisperflo 1.5 HP pump with an SF HP of 2.21 HP. The pump is almost dead and needs replacing. This pump replaced a 2.5 HP pump about 8 years ago but never could deliver the flow to run the deck jets, spa return and weeping wall at the same time. I like the features and options of the PureLine pumps and I am wondering if the 1.65 HP or the 2.7 HP pump would be the best bet? I will also be replacing a 1 HP (waterfall) pump. Single or VS for it?

Hi, David P. Replacing your Whisperflo pump with the Prime 2.7 HP VSP Pump will still not be able to run those features at the same time. If you have 2" plumbing, then my recommendation would be the IntelliFlo Variable Speed Pump - 011018

I just bought a house with a ~35455 gallon rectangular inground pool. As far as I know, the pool is 13 years old with the original equipment. It has a Pentair 7-177474-01 1 HP single speed pump installed with a Pentair FNS Plus DE 48 sq ft filter. The filter appears to be appropriate, but I'm looking to make the pump more energy efficient as it runs 24/7 with possibly switching over to salt sometime soon. It looks like I need to move 50 gpm for 2 turnovers, would this be a good replacement?

This PureLine Prime 2.7 HP Variable Speed Pump would be a great replacement for your current Whisperflo pump and you will save a ton on your operational cost. You could actually get by with the PL2625 1.65 HP Variable Speed Salt Friendly PureLine Prime as on the highest speed it will be more powerful than your current pump. The plumbing ports on the PureLine Prime are not in the exact same spot as your current pump so you will have a little re-plumbing.

Can this pump's variable speeds be controlled by the Jandy Aqualink RS controls?

Good day, for the Pureline Variable speed PL2626 you will need a V-Green Automation Adapter Kit - 2517501-001
