So heres my probelem. My cuurent pump just died and it appears the previous owner installed a rebuilt pump. I called the place that rebuilt it and they were no help at all, so I figured I'd ask here. It seems they removed the factory label and the one they replaced it with is missing some info, and as such i'm having a hard time figuring out what pump is compatible. All the new label shows is.
Manf AO Smith
So I understand all the above, but there is no Model/Serial # or What the service factor is. Whats even more crazy is that it seems to be a single speed pump but is hooked up to a timer and a pole switch at the recepticle. When you flip the switch the pump operates at the same speed. So I'm guessing there used to be a 2 speed pump there and it was replaced with a single speed pump. In either event, my plan is to buy a 2 speed motor to replace it with, but from what Iv'e read service factor seems to be an important aspect in compatability. Does anyone have any advice, or should I just take a shot in the dark and buy another AO Smith thats 1.0/.16 HP with a SF of around 1.65? Any help someone can give me would be greatly appreciated
