Question about Pentair 1.0 Hp Whisperflo Pump
Due to corrosion its hard to read the label on both capacitor & pump housing. I can see that pump housing says 3450rpm and type: Y56Y. Blank line next to HP. I want to purchase one or more capacitors online and since they are cheap enough I don't mind buying more than one if I can't be sure of size. I can get them online for $4 but I'd pay $40 local. Should I try 30F? A local shop could easily fix this but I'm trying to save a few $ and see if I can fix first. Thankyou.
There are so many models of what may appear like the same motor, but the internals may vary????
If you can take off the cover & look at the capacitor itself, that is your best bet. You need to at least be at the equivalent of the same range of MFD!!!! Example 72 - 93 MFD!
You can go slightly higher, but not by much!
If you can't read what you currently have, then contact Pentair directly. They may be able to assist you with the right information.
