My inground saltwater pool filter pump (Hayward SP3010X15AZ) motor failed and I need to replace it. The original is a 1.5Hp, 3450RPM single speed A.O.Smith motor: C48L2N134B1 , SER 8K04, SF 1.0
Leslie pools suggested either getting a complete new pump for store price of $575 or replacing the motor only with an Emerson for about $375. (seems they don't sell the A.O.Smith.)
Does anyone has thoughts about Emerson? Or any other model I should look into for replacement?
Looks like I could get the A.O.Smith online for about $200+, but then would need to put the stuff together myself.
The pump is in storage for the winter now, so I could get the parts now and put it together at opening for the next season.
