    Help Please!! Need Replacement Motor - Pentair WFDS28

    Hi,

    I am hoping someone can help me quickly. We need to order a new pump motor ASAP. Our old pump is a WFDS-28, 2.0 SF 1.1, THP is 2.2. RPM 3450/1725

    I spoke with someone at InYoPol and they told the Century Pump would be the B983 which is 1.5HP with a SF 1.47 = THP is 2.2. RPM 3600/1800

    I know the total HP is the same so that is good, but I need to make sure it has enough power for our solar panels which are 30 feet up on our roof.

    I was looking at the Century Motor B984 (2hp*1.3sf=2.6thp RPM 3450/1725) but he told me that would be way too much power vs what we currently have.

    One option you have is to spend $60 at harbor freight and drop a sump pump in the pool to be able to add chlorine and circulate the water while until you get it replaced.

    Thanks but we have our robot in the pool right now. Looking for confirmation on B983 vs B984,
