Question about Geo Global Partners 560 Gph Pond Pump

Open Question

Hi John, I use 560 global partners pumps for waterfalls and have had problems with the pump coming on and running at a low speed. If I turn off and back on it runs fine. This has been happening more and more with the newest ones sold at Home Depot. Any ideas on why this is happening? Dave

Spa waterfall isn't flowing


If you turn the valve to operate the waterfall feature on your spa and no water is coming out of it, my best guess would be the valve is broken and not turning to allow the water to go to the waterfall.
Pull the top of the valve off and look inside for a broken part.

Waterfall pump hums but won't pump


this sure sounds if the impeller is blocked and not being able to turn ,Dont let it run this way , can dammage motor of pump , remove intake cover (unplugged) and wash out with garden hose real well , see if impeller (black plastic blade) can turn with your finger (unplugged) , should move easy ! this might be an indacation of need for a filter on pump inlet !!!

I have a Century 1081 115v, 2 speed pump for my waterfeature. The motor runs fine in low and high spped, the pump impeller is spinning but it dies not pump water.It is a 3/4 horse. The waterfall reservoir...


I don't know the answer to this ... your pool service company can advise you. To my way of thinking, you are asking a lot of a 3/4 horse. I have a 1 1/2 horse lifting water in a two inch pipe about 4 feet to my water feature with no reservoir.

Since you have a two inch pipe, why not run a bigger motor? I have two HP on all my filtered lines which are 2" suction and 2" discharge.

Are you absolutely sure you have suction? ... and no air leaks on the suction side?

Replaced Single Speed Pool Pump Motor with 2-Speed Motor


You will need a two speed time clock to really take advantage of real energy efficiency savings. Intermatic makes one that fits in place of the original t104 time clock. You will need to run an additional wire to the pump as well. You will have the ground. Then one common wire that is always hot whether or not you are on high speed or low speed. You could make this a white wire. Then a black wire for your high speed that is energized in high speed and a red wire for the low speed. It is important that the high and low speeds not be energized at the same time, otherwise you will hear a very unpleasant sound coming from the motor, and failure and shortened life of the motor will be realized.

Replaced the pump, when tub was pwr'd on the new


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

There should be a cord from the motor that plugs into the control box for the spa. That cord should have 4 wires connected to the motor terminal board. The leads are normally colored White-black-red-green. White is neutral or line depending on voltage, green is ground, and the back and red are the hi and low speeds. The side of the motor should have a sticker that has the proper place to connect the hi and low leads. Look at those posts and note which color is there. Now interchange those two, so if black was hi and red low, make red hi and black low. Once done, the motor should go back to behaving normally.

How do I prime my outside of the pond waterfall pump?


I would take the intake hose off the pump and fill it with water and with the pump running I would hokk upthe intake hose.

I also would if possible have the pump lower than the pond.
