      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great; but no switch Works great and is more quiet than our old Doughboy pump. The down side however is that there is no On/Off Switch.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs an On/Off Switch! I replaced my old reliable Power Flo LX 1.5hp of 15 years. No on/off switch now? Two electricians said the same things about no switch: That when you plug anything in that is "on" it creates an arc of electricity and the motor takes a small hit each time, eventually burning out the motor sooner. And that Hayward wants to sell more pumps. So what if the switch might have to be replaced? It is simple to do, and the pump will last longer with a switch for back washing, etc. Also, am not sure this pump has quite the power/flow of my old pump even though it is the same horsepower. Haven't hooked it up to my heavy duty timer yet. Will wait til next year as getting ready to close the pool soon. I am using my breaker as my "switch" for now, and it is a bit of a walk back and forth but better than plugging in while "on."

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from In The Swim For The Win! An excellent pump at a great price. Thank goodness I did my research because I almost bought the EXACT SAME pump from a national chain for approximately $150 more. I don't know about you, but I think $150 is a lot of money and I'd rather it in my pocket. In The Swim for the win once again!

      I see that the discharge of the pump is out the top of the pump but mine is on the side. Will this work for me?
      – Yes, this pump will work for you. By removing a clip behind the strainer basket and removing four bolts on the back of the motor, this pump can be changed from top to side discharge.

      Troubleshooting

    • Motor Will NOT Start – Check For:
    • – Improper or loose wiring connections; open switches or relays; tripped circuit breakers, GFCI's, or blown fuses.
      – Manually check rotation of motor shaft for free movement and lack of obstruction.
      – If you have a timer, be certain it is working properly. Bypass it if necessary.

    • Motor Shuts OFF – Check For:
    • – Undersized wiring; loose connections; etc.
      – Low voltage at motor or power drop (frequently caused by undersized wiring or extension cord use).
      NOTE: Your Hayward pump motor is equipped with an "automatic thermal overload protector." The motor will automatically shut off if power supply drops before heat damage can build up causing windings to burn out. The "thermal overload protector" will allow the motor to automatically restart once the motor has cooled, provided the power source is again up to proper levels. It will continue to cut On/Off until the problem is corrected. Be sure to correct cause of overheating.

    • Motor Hums, But Does NOT Start – Check For:
    • – Centrifugal switch stuck in OPEN position.
      – Binding of motor shaft.

    • Pump won't prime.
    • – Make sure pump/strainer housing is filled with water and the cover O-ring is clean, also be sure it is properly seated in the cover O-ring groove. Make sure strainer cover is locked firmly in position and lubricated with water based lubricant.
      – Make sure all suction and discharge valves are fully open and not blocked, that pool water level is at proper level, and that skimmer weir is not hung up or binded on skimmer wall.
      – Block off to determine if pump will develop a vacuum. You should have 5"-6" of vacuum at the strainer cover (Only your pool dealer can confirm this with a vacuum gauge). You may be able to check by removing the skimmer basket and holding your hand over the bottom port with skimmer full and pump running. If no suction is felt, check for line blockage.

      • If pump develops a vacuum, check for blocked suction line or dirty strainer basket, an air leak in the suction piping may be the cause.
      • If pump does not develop a vacuum and pump has sufficient "priming water":
      Re-check strainer housing cover and all threaded connections for suction leaks. Check if all hose clamps are tight.
      Check voltage to ensure that the motor is rotating at full RPM's.
      Open housing cover and check for clogging or obstruction in suction. Check impeller for debris.
      Remove and replace shaft seal only if it is leaking.

    • Low Flow – Generally, Check For:
    • – Clogged or restricted strainer or suction line; undersized pool piping.
      – Plugged or restricted discharge line of filter, valve partially closed (high gauge reading).
      How to correct: Sand filters – backwash as per manufacturer's instructions; D.E. filters – backwash
      – Air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return fittings). Re-tighten using Teflon tape.
      – Plugged or restricted impeller or impeller sheared off. Replace including new seal assembly.

    • Noisy Pump – Check For:
    • – Air leak in suction causing rumbling in pump.
      – Cavitation due to restricted or undersized suction line or leak at any joint, low water level in pool, and unrestricted discharge return lines. Correct suction condition or throttle return lines, if practical. Holding hand over return fitting will sometimes prove this point or putting in a smaller eyeball fitting.
      – Vibration due to improper mounting, etc. Put a rubber pad under metal mounting feet.
      – Foreign matter in pump housing. Loose stones/debris hitting impeller could be cause, remove any of the above
      – Motor bearings noisy from normal wear, rust, overheating, or concentration of chemicals causing seal damage, which will allow chlorinated water to seep into bearings wiping out the grease causing bearing to whine. All seal leaks should be replaced at once.
      – Equipment base vibrating.

      Pump Sizing Advice
      When sizing a replacement pump, Dr. Pool strongly suggests that you replace with the same size horsepower as your existing set-up! In most cases, up-grading horsepower shortens your filter’s expected life and voids manufacturer’s warranties.
