Guys, Thanks in advance. Basically I inherited a year old Hayward SP15801c 1HP pump from my brother who got rid of his pool. He purchased the house with the pool and didnt want to take care of it so took it down and I got the pump so there is no asking him for assistance. Anyway, i cannot for the life of me figure out what the thread size is on the return side of this thing.
I know the inlet size on it is a 1 1/2 inch female, however the return thread is a larger, like 2 1/2 external male thread. After doing some googling I think it must be some sort of proprietary thread size for a hayward union, however i could never find the specific part number I need to order.
I called the local hayward pool distributor and the guy basically told me they dont make external threads and thought I was nuts. I called Hayward customer service and got a guy on the phone who provided me a part number, however the number he gave me is the actual housing that I have, not the threaded coupler I need to connect my hose to it. The following is what he gave me Hayward SPX1580AAT Pump Housing with Extended Thread which is exactly what I have. I just need to figure out what to purchase to connect my return hose to it. I would call them back, however I just sat on hold for 45 minutes and dont want to do taht again.
If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.
