    Blue Works SWG vs. Hayward?

    Avoid BlueWorks. Although the price and warranty seems attractive it is not worth buying this product for those reasons. I had two cells fail within a two year period. The company makes you pay for shipping so I ended up paying $80 shipping it back twice. This company is unethical and won't...

    Here's another one that seems comparable. Amazon.com : Pentair 340039 SuperFlo High Performance Single Speed Pool Pump, 1½ Horsepower, 115/230 Volt, 1 Phase : Swimming Pool Water Pumps : Garden Outdoor

    Two speed isn't practical as I'm running the in-floors 100% when the motors on and the pool gets pretty dusty in AZ. The WFE-8 is damaged and should be replaced. Is there a more affective wet end that will work with the X5035 motor and if so what? If I need to replace the wet end and motor...

    Mark you are correct as I was mistaken it was a Whisperflo. See attached photo. If you zoom in you can see the Pinnacle label on the wet end. Any idea if this would work for my in-floor cleaning system? pool pump | J Resolk | Flickr old wet pump below: pump | J Resolk | Flickr

    The whisperflo wet ends are different sizes. I don't have the pump cover on the old whisperflo and I think the waterfall whisperflo is going to be a different but I'll check. if they are the same I will proceed. If not then maybe I'll swap motors. I'm thinking the Xtreme Power system should...

    Mark I actually still have the old whisperflo pump (see attached) but not the front plate though. pump | J Resolk | Flickr I thought it was the same SF as my waterfall pump of 1.1 but its actually 1.3 SF. Not sure how the SF plays into the overall performance but the Whisperflo actually...

    The reason i can't upload the pics is due to a site limitation. I have another whisperflow on my waterfall that I could switch out.

    Appears the motor is wired correctly. I would share photos but having difficulty uploading them for some reason. I'm surprised the new motor is running at a much lower pressure. The only difference is the new motor SF is 0.1 less than the previous motor. Would that alone cause the PSI to drop...

    New motor is Extreme Power model # X5035 purchased through Amazon. A head curve was not provided in the owners manual. Old motor was a Whisperflow 2HP (not sure of the model). I was thinking the motor could have been wired for 110V. Will take a look tomorrow.

    Thanks for providing the review info Jon. If the pump is truly 1/3 less efficient than my Whisperflow then It would be seeing PSI around 20 but mine is about half that (~10). I'm hoping it's sometime really silly like a miswire. I couldn't read the terminal markings on the motor until I...

    The GPM was provided in the owners manual. It is not an actual measurement inside the system.

    Thanks for the explanation Dave. The SF on the old motor was 1.1 whereas the new is 1.0. The old motor was actually a little on the high pressure side so if I get the new one figured out than it should be a good range. Specifications of my pool system are below. ---------- 12K...

    The sequence of repairs occurred as follows: The gears were getting worn in the cleaning system so I replaced them and the paddle. No change to the system PSI. A month later the pump shorted out during a rain storm causing me to replace it with one of similar specifications. The PSI dropped...

    Replaced heads with new ones and they work so I don't think its related to pressure. Here's a picture of the system. There's a diverter valve for the drain/skimmer but none for the cleaner.
