Finding the Tune-Up Kit for Your Pool Pump

  1. Which pool pump tune up kit do I need for this replacement pump?
    B 625
    serial 31913 CH
    part o-173840-23
    3/4 HP HZ 60 volts 230/115

    1. As we mention in the blog, to find the correct gasket kit, we need to know the model number of the pump housing.

      The SQ1152 can be fitted to dozens of pump housings that use different gaskets and shaft seals. To find the right gaskets for you, we need to know the pump model number.

  2. I just purchased the pump ST1152 – A.O. Smith Round Flange 1 1/2 HP Full Rate Motor (C1101, ST1152). Do I need a tune up kit for this. When I watched your U-Tube video, it did not mention this when replacing the pump.

    1. Kate – Anytime a pool pump motor is replaced, a new shaft seal should be installed as well. A tuneup or gasket kit includes a shaft seal and the rest of the rubber seals needed to keep your pump watertight. If the pump’s gaskets are a few years old, we suggest a kit to prevent any leaks when you reassemble the pump.

      The ST1152 is a motor that can be fitted to a few dozen pump housings. To find the correct gasket kit for your pump, we need to know the model number of the pump. The pump model number is found on the plastic pump housing.

  3. Just ordered a new pump motor. Forgot to order Go Kit/Tune Up Kit. Which is the correct kit for this motor:
    A.O. Smith 3/4 HP E.E. Square Flange Full Rate Motor (QC1072)
    (pump model is PE 5D-124L or PE SD-124L)

    1. What is the model number of your pump housing? The CT1072 is the model number of the motor.

      We mention in the article and the above comments (a few times) that the gasket kit is matched to the pump housing and not the motor label.

  4. HEY Matt , WHATS UP (JUNGLEBOY) FROM THE TFP FORUM, SO WHERE’S THE BLONDE WIG ?

    MATT, SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, BUT I NEED HELP.
    I have only one label on my entire pool pump and its on the motor. The motor reads the following :

    AO SMITH
    MODEL: C48K2N143B1
    1 HP

    AND THEN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE MOTOR IT READS:

    SP-1607-Z1-M
    HAYWARD POOL PRODUCTS INC.

    THE PUMP IS DEFINITELY A HAYWARD AS IT HAS THE BIG LETTER “H” USUALLY FOUND ON HAYWARD PUMPS, BUT NO LABEL. IT LOOKS LIKE A MAX-FLO. WHAT MODEL HAYWARD PUMP WOULD THIS BE ?

    WHAT WOULD THE CORRECT BEARINGS PART NUMBER FOR THIS MOTOR BE ?

    I THINK IT’S A HAYWARD MAX-FLO, BUT I NEED TO KNOW THE MODEL NUMBER SO I CAN HAVE IT FOR REFERENCE. I ALSO NEED TO ORDER THE COMPLETE O-RING KIT WITH SHAFT SEAL AND LUBE.

    THANKS

    1. Hello Jungleboy, that info is all motor and not specific to the pump model that is needed to find the gasket kit. You will need to look on the pump housing tag for a “PUMP MODEL NUMBER” or find a part number on the pump lid, housing, etc to narrow the search. “H” is going to be on every Hayward pump so it at least gets the search down to Hayward.

      To confirm the model of pump, you can also browse our Hayward pump parts breakdowns to confirm you have the Maxflo. I believe that motor should use two #203 motor bearings.

  5. I just did a complete upgade on my hayword super flo. A week later the motor went out. The motor was about 18 years old. I just replaced the motor. Since I just put the new seal only a couple weeks ago. Do I need to replace it again.

    1. Mike,
      As the article states a couple times, we need to know the model number of the pump housing not the mtoor. That motor can be fitted to dozens of different pumps but the gaskets needed to seal said pump varies according to the model.

      What model pool pump do you have?

  6. which gasket tune up kit do I need to go with:

    A.O. Smith
    Century Centurion
    Cat# B122
    Part# 0-164299-23
    Frame# M56C
    HP 1.0

    I am ordering the replacement motor from you, but also need the correct tune up kit.

    Thank you!

    1. The article (and my responses to the previous commenters) is pretty clear on the gaskets are matched to the pump housing and not the motor info. All the provided information in your original post is motor specific.

    1. The sticker on the housing that attaches to the pump is P2R A5YE-124L. Is that what you need? I’m not sure I see any other numbers.

  7. I have a Jandy Stealth pool pump that requires a replacement motor, can you please let me know the correct tune-up kit i would need? I have only been able to find the separate parts, no kit. Also, can you please confirm that the motor I have selected is correct?

    Pump Model: SHPF2.0
    Pump Serial: R10FC0394
    Motor: original motor is an A.O. Smith 0-193995-07, replacing with B748

    Thanks for your help

  8. Model#SP2615X202S
    Serial:21120705013877018

    Which kit do I need?

    There is a little leak. The plastic piece in between the motor and the pump looks like it might be worn down. Water is slowly spurting out. Thank you for any help you can provide.

  9. I have a Waterway 1 1/2 HP 2 speed Part #- PH2100-6p, Model – SD-10-2N11CB, Serial #- SD130611 5700. Is there a kit for this pump or just the shaft seal? Pump is approx. 5 yrs. old and has small drip. Motor still running well. Any videos on how to fix this?

  10. I’m a female with some mechanical experience. Call me Mrs. Fix It. The parts page shows an old style (obsolete) and new style, i’m assuming mine is, due to age. Do I need any other parts besides 2,11,14 16 ? Thank you for all your help!!!

  11. The one in your previous link for the Waterway Hi Flo. I’m guessing from the list I would need #2. O ring lid. #5. O ring od. #8. Gasket 2″ union. #11. O ring (256). #14. Seal Pump 1000. Is there anything I missed? Where do I find that little tube of lubricant that comes with the kits?

    1. Oh, sorry. I didn’t realize all these comments were connected because your replies weren’t directly attached to my replies.

      But yes, you are correct. Those are all the gaskets and o-rings you would need.

  12. What capacitor is needed for century pool pump… CAT B2852. SERIAL 05913CH And what o ring replacement kit do I need

    1. I do not have a listing for the capacitor in that motor. But do you have the old capacitor? If so, what are the ratings on the barrel? It should list a voltage and an MFD rating?

      Also, to find the correct gasket kit, we need to know the pump housing model number, instead of the motor.

  16. Hello Matt:

    The Jandy Pump is the Stealth SHPF 1.0 – 2, 1.0 HP, Serial Number R10FE0888. Hope this helps..
    Also, are there any special tools required for the motor and seal replacement?
    Thanks.

    1. There are a few models for Aqua Flo. There is a list of models with accompanying pictures of the pump and parts on this link. I would click through the pumps listed under Aqua Flo to determine which looks like yours. The seals and gaskets for the pump should be listed.

  17. Looking for a seal kit/gasket kit/go kit… (whatever it’s called) for century centurion B849. My pool pump is two years old but is already leaking from the bottom of the pump.

  18. Hello,
    What is the recommended seal tune up kit for a 5 hp Century Centurion motor? Part number 7-193410-01. It’s an older unit.

  19. I have a century centurion pool and spa duty

    Part 8-177773 with serial B85-F50155
    Where can i find tune up kit for this?

    Best regards

  20. I am replacing the motor on my pump which appears to by a Hayward unit made for Leslies? It’s stamped with a big RS for “Replacement Series” and has a SP3000D clear strainer lid cover. Which tune up kit do I need?
