    Hayward pump motor question

    I have a Hayward Power-flo-Flo-Lx 1.5 hp pump. My question is this up rated or full rated and what the service factor is.
    There is nothing on the motor label that specifies what it is except being 1.5 hp.


    Thanks in advance

    Most above ground pumps are up rated (SF around 1.0, or occasionally lower). Does it list peak amps or kw?

    It lists 12.0 amps. Doesn't say if that is peak or not. No listing for kw.

    That is a fairly typical up rated above ground pump. I can't give you the exact SF, as manufactures tend to approximate amps a little, but somewhere around 1.0.
