To replace impeller on a sls200 pool pump,does it unscrew clockwise or anticlockwise

Reverse clockwise. Make sure to replace the shaft seal when you change the impeller, or else it will leak 99% of the time. You need to stop the shaft from moving to turn the impeller. See video, impellers and shaft seals are the same how to get to the shaft in the back is not so hopefully its exposed in the back and you don't have to take it all apart.

Reverse direction of electric motor

If your motor runs backwards, you wired the motor backwards. Change your wires around and it will run the correct way.

How is the pump seperated from the motor. I am replacing the motor only.

From this question I assume you already have a motor. Anyway, most motors separate from the pumps by first taking apart the pump and removing the impeller. Some impellers have a screw in the middle that have left handed threads. Once this screw is removed the impeller can be unscrewed by holding the motor shaft with a wrench and turning the impeller counter clockwise. To gain access to the motor shaft to hold it there usually is a cover at the end of the motor that comes off. When the impeller is off there are usually bolts that hold the pump to the motor. When reassembling the motor it is important to replace the ceramic seal and gaskets. I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a QC 1072 A.O. Smith pool pump motor. How to get the impeller off? Which direction does the impeller spin off? Where to but impeller and seal? Thank you very much Greg

The impeller is just screwed on the shaft. COUNTERCLOCKWISE to remove. Some have a screw in the center attaching it to shaft. This is removed by by turning CLOCKWISE.(reverse threads) Remove back cover and secure shaft with a wrench. There are flats on the shaft to hold it. You might need a large pipe wrench to loosen impeller. Wrap with rag so you don't damage impeller.

I have a 1 1/2 HP Magnum Force Pump by Jacuzzi. After making some strange grinding noise, I opened it up to find lots of white powdery material flaking off where the Seal Housing (#18) meets the motor...

Thank you for posting your question here on

Yes, the seal has been leaking and it needs to be replaced; probably the motor bearings too.

Removing the impeller requires you lock the shaft as you turn the impeller off counter-clockwise. To lock the impeller you will have to remove the motor end cover or a cap covering the shaft end depending on which version your particular motor has. Look at the end opposite the pump and imagine a shaft from one end to the other right in the center.

Once you remove the cover you will see a slot for a screwdriver, a flat for a wrench, a hex hole for a hex key or some combination of these. Lock the shaft and spin off the impeller. Some are so tight you will end up breaking them in the process. Simply replace it and the seal. Be sure the motor shaft is in good enough condition to allow the new seal to work properly. If too much shaft material has rotted away the new seal will leak soon after it is installed; you would need a new motor at that point.

How do I remove the impeller so I can change the seal assem bly

Check the center of the impeller for a screw. If it has one it will be a left hand thread and to remove you will have to turn in a clockwise direction. Then insert a screwdriver in a vein of the impeller on the left side and give it a firm hit with a hammer to break it free from the shaft then it should just spin off in a counter clockwise direction.
If it still won't come free open the back of the motor and get a wrench on the rear end of the shaft. Depending on the brand of motor will tell you what size wrench. good luck.

We are having issues getting the impeller apart on the jacuzzi magnum force pool pump and need some instructions on how to proceed.

I believe the jacuzzi pump impeller has a locking screw directly in the middle of the impeller. You'll have to turn it clockwise to remove it. Then you'll need to remove the cover from the back of the motor using a 1/4" nut driver. Depending on the motor, you should be able to use a 7/16" open end wrench to hold the motor shaft from turning as you turn the impeller counter-clockwise to remove it. Some motors are different, some have a keyed shaft or require a special tool to hold the shaft while the impeller is removed. Hope this helps.

The suction and water flow is greatly reduced

It's possible to wear out the impeller. To remove the impeller: after removing the motor and impeller from the housing, you remove the cover from the electric end. Carefully find a flat on the shaft that usually fits an open end wrench close to where the shaft goes into the motor. Not on the end of the shaft where the spring thing is. Hold the shaft with a wrench while turning the impeller, don't let the wrench break anything. Double check the threads on the new impeller to see if they are left-handed. The impeller should unscrew in the direction of the motor's rotation.
Put in a new seal while you're there.
