    Hayward Superpump Question.

    I have a Hayward Superpump with 1 1/2HP 2-speed General Electric Pool Pump Motor on it. The label on it is mostly unreadable. I can get some numbers off of it:
    HP 1 1/2
    V 230
    PH 1
    RPM 3450/1225 ??
    Swim Pool Motor
    A 6.9/2.6
    Cat# C1112
    Cannot read the wiring diag.
    The way I read it, it is a 230 volt only (no 115) motor. 6.9 amp on hi-speed and 2.6 on low speed.
    Sound correct? Anybody with the same motor?
    Tried GE and Marathon a few weeks ago and never got a reply.
    Thanks

    What are you trying to figure out?

    The low speed RPM is 1725.

    I thought that the 1225 sounded strange.

    That it only a 230 volt motor and the amp is 6.9/2.6 at 230 volt.
    With how unreadable the label is, I am guessing at those numbers.
    Used a magnifying glass to get as far as I did.
    I did plug it in to 115 and it ran kind of.
    Ran much better on 230 and hi and low works.
    Now it has new seals and gaskets and ready to be wired in and plumbed!

    Re: Hayward Superpump Question.

    Just thought of something as I was pondering the wiring.
    Any thoughts on a timer? Would I need a timer for 2-speed or just a standard timer?
    Any recommendations?

    That's strictly a 230 volt motor.
    A two speed timer works better but you can use a single speed one and just manually switch between low and high.

    Those amp numbers are reasonable. It looks like it has an up rated standard efficiency motor.
