    Need new Pump

    Good Afternoon,
    I have a 1HP Hayward Superpump. The motor is shot.
    I have a 3cf Hayward Sand Filter, and have 1.5" plumbing
    I have a floor drain and main strainer
    I have 1 Return Line.

    I need to order a new pump today, and trying to see what Pump to get.
    Some say to do a 1.5HP and some say 1HP or 2 Speed.

    Need suggestions on best pump to move the water.
    I have a 39-42,000 gallon pool. Depending on site calculators.

    What do you all suggest. Doing plumbing today to get ready.

    Thanks

    Cheapest and easiest with improved electrical use would just be to order a 2 speed 1hp motor to replace the motor you have and use the same pump.

    No reason to go bigger if what you have was acceptable.

    Re: Need new Pump

    Why are you getting a new pump instead of replacing the motor?

    Almost seems cheaper to order the whole pump and motor assembly. Just not sure what to get. Pentair or Hawyard. Is there a benefit to either one? I have to re-plum either way so I want to go with something decent.

    A Hayward super pump or Pentair Superflo are fine, very similar.

    A motor would still be cheaper, but either way.

    Verify whether your current motor is 115 or 230 volt.

    Going to take the recommendation and purchase a new Motor.
    Should I just by a Hayward Motor?

    THere are 2 numbers on your motor - the HP rating and the Service Factor (SF). Multiplying these together gets you SFHP. Your new motor (on high speed) should have the same or higher SFHP as your current single speed motor.

    The Motor is set to 230V took the cover off.
    The Label is all fried up, I was only able to make out this part of the Model # sp-1607-z

    You also have to buy a hi/lo end cover or other method of selecting the speed.
