1 Answer

5 yr old Hayward 1 horse power super pump. For some reason this yr it is using twice as much electricity as the 4 yrs prior. The impelor is clean and free of any blockage. The only noticable difference is the housing is extremely hot. No noticable difference in the sound. It is still cleaning the pool properly, any suggestions would be greatly appricated. Thank you........Tracy

First I find it interesting you know the pump is using twice as much electricity. Did you measure the current with an amp meter? or are you looking at your bill. If you're reading an amp meter, then how does it compare to the Full load amps on the name plate. If it less than or equal to the full load ,then there is no problem with the pump. The motor will be hot on a hot day and running 24/7. A pump will draw more current when it does more work(pumping more water) Is it possible you have either cleaned the filter, allowing the pump to pump more water? Have you changed the discharge jets to a larger size? While any of these would drop pressure, it will increase the load on the pump. Have you selected a combination of suction from skimmer & main drain, where you previously only used one? Just a few ideas. Good Luck!

I need a seal for my 1.5 horse power SPL pool pump, but I cannot find it. The company I bought my pool pump no longer carries Jacuzzi pumps. Is there somewhere I can get it or another seal I substitute?

Any pool store in your area should have a 201 mechanical seal available. If not, try looking under pump repair for a shop in your area. It is a very common seal and is interchangeable with the Hayward super pump seal so it should not be hard to find.

Your pump is protected by a thermal device that shuts it off when over heated. Are you running 110 or 220? In my experience, your pump will run cooler on 220 ... consider coverting if appropriate.

2 yr old inground pool Hayward pump louder than normal. Bearings were checked and seals replaced prior to opening this summer.

If there is air in the pump it cavitates and can make it run louder, otherwise it is the bearings in the motor.
