New here, already like this site, need more time too look around.
I did search and couldn't find an answer to this question.
I have a pool pilot and salt generator, in ground pool is roughly 26000 (18x36 with shallow and 8' deep end). It came with the house, I have in 4 years put in new sand filter, new chlorine generator (the plates that wear), and a new liner.
It has a hayward superpump, and the 1.5hp 56J motor is making bad noises. I work on overhead cranes, 460V electric motor, and variable frequency drives, so this swap is not beyond my skills.
I found a 56J Vgreen motor for $400 at inyo pool with free shipping. I researched all I could, looks like I can make it work with the pool pilot, so I bought it, should see it this coming week. It is the 1.65hp model, which since I am replacing the 1.5hp single speed, I felt like this would be fine.
Can anyone offer any insight as to anything special to do to make the 2 work together? Should I not try it? Let me know. Just trying to plan ahead to make the swap in 1 evening, going to get the pump seal kit locally.
Thank you --Jim
