    Advice on this motor.

    I currently have a Century pool and spa motor and it went out. Already had the capacitor checked.

    Hp 1.5
    Hz 60
    V 115
    amp 8.0
    rpm 3450

    I am strapped for cash right now and this seems like a good deal for a replacement




    Horsepower: 1.5
    Voltage: 110 V
    Power ( max ): 1500 W
    Max Flow : 330 L/Min
    Power Cord : 53"
    Max Head: 16 M
    Inlet/Oulet Size: 1.5"
    RPM: 3450
    Max Temp: 104 F

    The only difference I see is this one is 110v and my old one is 115v. Will this work ok?

    That's not the same as the pump you have now.
    The voltage is fine. Anything between 110 to 120 is the same. It's just how they market it.

    So do you guys think this is a decent motor pump combo? http://cgi.ebay.com/1-5-HP-Swimming-...item25665b7b7f

    I don't have an opinion about it. I think there is a topic about a similar pump here but I can't seem to remember what the topic was.

    I could buy just a motor for a similar price but this seemed like a good deal. Since Its a new pump motor and basket. Not sure what to do. If i just buy the motor then i have a old pump. which i can afford right now.
