There are 4 bolts that go all the way through the motor and thread into the wet end.
The first place to start it to remove the face plate of the wet end exposing the impeller.
The impeller is threaded onto the shaft of the motor.
Take a big flat head screw driver and put it onto the end of the shaft of the motor and hold it tightly so you can unthread the impeller off the shaft of the motor.
Unthread those four bolts that go all the way through the motor.
You are done at this point.

SOURCE: Just wondering what the flow

There is no way to know the flow rate of your installation beyond a guess ... I guess you are pumping about 95 GPM with a 2.5 hp motor ... a 2 HP moves about 75 to 80 GPM. A 1.5 moves about 60 to 80. There are lots of variables least of which are accessories in the line ... chlorinator ... heater ... filter and its cleanliness ... etc. Other vairables include pipe size ... distances water pumped, number of turns - fittings - restrictions, etc. To get a good idea of the flow rate (important to know when calculating 'turn over' rates) get and properly install a flow rate meter.

SOURCE: My Spa needs a new pump. A Max E Pro Pump 2 speed

Yes, and I recommend and install them. Look at the voltage and Amperage information on both as well. It is typical to see 220V @ 12.9 amps. If you find this on both motors, they are the same size anyways.

It would take a while to explain, but motor manufacturers can rate a motor @ 1.5HP or 2HP and it can be the same motor. They use a rating called a "service factor" to screw around with the actual HP of a motor. But even if the 1.5 is a 1.5, it would be sufficient.

Flow master XP2 by aquaflo for spa; it clicks, but does not start. I could turn the shaft with a wrench, all plugs work.


the start switch has trash in it , use compressed air and blow out the back of the motor, this works most of the time for me. otherwise the motor will need to be dissembled and can be tricky do to easy to break parts. search your area for your local pool pump motor repair guy with free testing. and ahve him clean the switch

Xp 2 wet end leaking


Probably seals are worn behind the impeller.
It is recommended to replace the pump motor as well as the wet end. Be sure to get a pump with same 1.5HP, frame size (48 or 56), pipe size (2" or 3") and an XP2e wet end (replaces the XP2).

Option 2 is to replace the XP2 wet end with the XP2e ($60-$80). Make sure the shaft is not rusted to assure a good seal.
If you want to replace the seals (online $7-$25), you'll have to remove the wet end and then the impeller which may be difficult. I just figured out how to do this. See "http://www.fixya.com/support/t6782638-remove_impeller_aquaflo". Again, check the shaft for rust.

My Spa needs a new pump. A Max E Pro Pump 2 speed was recomended but I found a Aquaflo Flo-Master Xp2 Spa Pump 1.5 Hp Two Speed which is new for about $400. less. Can I use the Aquaflo model just as well?

Motor runs but will not pump


Remove the unit and open up the pump end and inspect the impeller for blockage or perhaps it is broken; clear or replace as needed. You should also replace the pump seal at the same time. If these seem beyond your ability a local electric motor repair shop should be able to do this for you for less than $60.

What do i replace my 4hp Flo Master XP2 wet end with? Everything now is for 3hp or less


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

Your wet end was most likely the 3HP version all along. Most pump manufacturers use the motor service factor to exaggerate the HP rating to try and sell the unit as 'better' than the competitors. You are best off using the part number molded into the original impeller as a means of identifying what pump you really have and ordering the wet end based on that information. If you can get the 8 digit number please post it in a comment to this message and we can verify the correct wet end for you. Another alternative will be to use a Waterway Executive model wet end if yours is indeed a discontinued 4HP rating.

If this answer does not fix your problem, please comment with additional details prior to rating the answer. Positive feedback is appreciated once your problem is solved!

I am trying to find a replacement for ann XP2


the 2" is inside diameter so you more than likely have a 2" suction/discharge. The motor is probably rated 5hp, especially since it is both a circulation and jet pump.

Water works spa pump- need to remove wet end... through bolts are out, motor shaft is free, impeller is frozen in housing... impeller has no visible nut/bolt holding it on, is this press fit or other? how...


Most of these are reverse threaded. There should be a place on the shaft that is flat on 2 sides a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench will fit into the slots. If not look at the back for a place to use a hex key. Hold the wrench/ hex key stationary with the Impeller facing you turn clockwise.
I know this sounds backwards but it should work.
Hope this helps

REMOVE WET END FROM MOTOR ON FLO-MASTER XP2


You will need to remove the six bolts/nuts on the wet end to expose the impeller. At the rear of the motor, remove the cap covering the shaft and restrain the shaft and spin the impeller off (counter-clockwise). Check to see if there is a screw in the center of the impeller and remove it by turning clockwise (if applicable). Once the impeller is off, you can remove the four through bolts from the rear of the motor using a 5/16 nut driver and the wet end should come right off.
