    new pump and motor - anything mods for a salt pool?

    Greetings all,

    Bought a new pump and motor (Pentair SuperFlo, 2 speed, 1HP) and would like to know if I need to change any seals before I install it because of a salt pool? I've heard from a neighbor you may need different seals due to the salt.

    thanks!!

    Nope. Same shaft seal as for any pool.

    Now if you had salt levels approaching that of the ocean, then I think a different seal might be required.
