    Need help identifying pump motor for replacement

    i'm replacing the motor for my Jandy MHP 2.0 pump used for my spa jets. can someone help me identify which motor I need. I've contacted several pool companies online and there is a difference of opinion. some say i need a 2HP Up-Rated and some say i need a 2HP Full Rated. i'm just replacing the motor so i need to make sure everything matches up.

    i'm attaching a picture of the label if anyone can help.

    thanks.

    Hey Clay, here is the information about your motor!

    AO Smith Motor sku# B855
    Motor Shaft Seal sku# 634016
    Pump Body O-Ring sku# 635028

    You can go with either a Full Rated or the Up-Rated B855.
    You currently have the Up-Rated so the B855 should be a direct replacement.

    That's a 1½ hp full rated or a 2 hp uprated motor. A B849 or a B855 motor will work, but you'd be better off going with a 2-speed. That would be a B983 or a B985 or an E+plus B2983.

    Blake was faster but I'm posting anyway!

    thanks for the info. that will save me a little bit of money.

    if it's only for the spa jets, what would be the benefit of the 2 speed?

    If it's only for the spa jets then I'd stick with the single speed.
