Hi,
Yes you could upgrade the motor from a 2.0 to a 2.5 but this will not result in an increase of your water/pressure flow?
This would slightly reduce the load on the motor as the impeller inside the pump is specifically matched to the your motors amperage.

SOURCE: 1/2hp Hayward Pump for existing inground pool

you will be fine with the 1/2hp. The Hayward will move quite a bit of water as well. It may not move as much water as the 3/4hp but it's very close and the 1/2hp will cost a little less to operate so if anything, you may just have to run it for one additional hour per day to compensate. You will be surprised how much water a 1/2hp will move. The only issue with smaller pumps is if you have pop-up cleaner heads or a suction driven automatic cleaner such as a kreepy krauly, however, if a 3/4hp will run it, a 1/2hp will run it as well. You can install a larger motor on the super pump but it will not move more water unless you upgrade the impeller as well. Just make sure you don't use a bigger impeller than what the motor is rated for because it will strain the motor and cause it to overheat. Hope this helps.

I think you have a failed start capacitor. Have your motor looked at by your professional pool supply.

Assuming everything is electrically correct, the motor probably has a short in the winding somewhere. The motor should have a one year warrantee on it. Any pool store ought to be able to trade it out for you.

I am looking for a parts diagram for an A.O. Smith pool pump motor SP3220Z1BE.


The motor is made by A.O. Smith in Tippton, OH. You can try calling them, and with any luck you may get a kind soul that can get you a splsh sheild. It is probably not a part you can purchase from a distributor, but that is an option you can also pursue. Good luck.
