    Hey everyone. First pool and first post. I picked up a non working heat pump tonight for next to nothing but I cannot find ANY information bout it anywhere. It is a Purex Triton MiniMax 5000. Does anyone know anything about this pump? I can't even find BTU of it. Thanks!

    Is there a more specific part number on the ID plate ??
    Might be something to contact customer support to see if there is a manual (w/trouble shooting guide) on line or something in PDF they can send you. http://www.pentairpool.com/products/...t-pump-405.htm

    Maybe this is close and might be of some help http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ws5VKqcg86I

    Anyone? I just can't believe this is some mystical pump that there is no info available on showing that it was ever even produced.

    Re: Pentair MiniMax 5000 Heat Pump????

    No joke, I feel your pain or at the very least frustration. I couldn't even pull up a picture of one and I'm usually pretty good with pictures. Every time I tried a search with different search engines IF it pulled up a minimax 5000 the actual article wasn't on a minimax 5000 !!! What the ...

    It's really rare I get that shut out on trying to find something as the harder it gets the more I feel I'm on a mission from God as Belushi would say. In the end, no joy.

    Haha well i appreciate it. It is definitely WAY bigger than i need for my 21ft agp. Ran a hottub and big 12 ft deep pool. Paid $25 so worth a try. Would u think if would be 500k btu based off other numbering conventions with pentair?
