Question about Hayward 2HP Pool Pump Motor A O Smith Electric Pool Motor for 56J Frame

1 Answer

Hello , I have a 5yr old pool complete with Hayward Filter and a 1hp pool filter motor and 2 hp spa air injection motor connected to an air switch the in ground pool is 32K gallons. Problem is with spa air injection system. Air switch turns motor on and sometimes the bubbler goes on other times the motor can run for 30 min with no bubbles. All jandy controls are in proper position. When system does not work blowing into air vent pipe will get it going. A service technician told me that perhaps the 2hp pump is too big and to go to 1hp ? It seems the 2hp pump can't **** in air to get the bubbler going . Could it be the motor or pump ?? Any ideas. Service guy gave up.

ALWAYS FREE.. SO IT SEEMS THAT YOUR NOT GETTING AIR, THESE BLOWERS HAVE FOAM IN THEM AND CAN ,AFTER A FEW YEARS GET CRISPY AND BREAK UP AND PLUG THE AIR PUMPS SUCTION PORT. THE FOAM IS USED AS A AIR FILTER AND A NOISE REDUCER , WHEN THESE BLOWERS GO BAD 90% OF THEM CAN'T BE REPAIRED ! = JUNK.. TO SEE IF YOU HAVE A RESTRICTION IN YOUR LINE OR LINES ,USE A SHOP VAC TO **** AND BLOW THE LINES IN AND OUT.. THESE BLOWERS ARE HELD IN USUALLY WITH ONE SCREW AND ARE EASY TO REPLACE ONE MORE CHECK 4 YA IS, THERE MIGHT BE A CHECK VALVE INLINE ON THE BLOWER , IT MAY BE BAD . BEST WAY TO CHECK IS TURN THE BLOWER ON FIRST , THEN TURN THE WATER PUMP ON.. HEY IF'N I WAS OF HELP GIVE ME A REVIEW OR A THUMB.. JAY YOUR LOCAL POOL PUMP WHISPERER IN FLORIDA

    the foam is inside of the blower. the only other thing i can think of is the fan came lose on the motor.. un hook from plumbing and test it to see the amount of preasure ,. a 2hp should be like a leaf blower

  • ejdellavecch Nov 21, 2010

    Thank you again,
    There is no "blower" it's a 2hp pump that pumps water to jets and picks up air from a vent. Will check pressure coming out of 2hp pump. Tks for your suggestions.

    The jet or jets that are in the wall maybe to small , remove one or all and see. its a venturi type system that you have, and if there is too much pressure on them they will not work. this is why i say to remove the jets , they make all sorts of sizes of jets so it may take a little tweaking.. i think we got it fingerd out finally
    Service guy gave up.
    one more thing now that i know its a venturi type, you can stick your fingers in the jets and plug them off, this will back flush the venturi . it should be done regular

  • ejdellavecch Nov 21, 2010

    Ok will check system tomorrow. Will take venturi's out ( if possible ) could be too much back pressure for 2hp pump to overcome. The 1hp /pool/spa circulation pump also runs. seems 2hp cannot overcome 1hp pressure for some reason. Bubbler goes right on when not in "SPA" mode water circulating in pool.

Hayward flo pump motor repair


What exactly is wrong with your pool pump? If it won't start at all, check for improper or loose connections, blown fuses or tripped breakers, and open your switches and replays. Manually check the rotation of your motor shaft. Make sure that there is free movement and no obstructions. If the motor hums, but won't start, check for obstructions and check the Centrifugal switch to see if it is stuck in the open position. If you have low flow, check pool pumps for clogged or restricted strainer/suction line and discharge line of filter. You could also have an air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return fittings). Low voltage could cause loss of suction. Check for plugged or restricted impeller.

We have aEC-65 hayward pool filter with a 1HP motor why does the pump slow down run at higher pressure ?


I believe that this particular model is a DE pool filter. Is that correct? If you are operating with a media other than DE, let me know. Assuming that you ARE using DE:
1. You DE could be coated to the maximum with pool dirt algae, etc. To correc this problem, you need to bump the filter.
2. You could have an overcharge of DE. To remedy,
Bump-Drain-Recharge.
3. Restriction in return line caused by small
eyeball fitting. To correct, change to a larger sized fitting.
4. You could have a partial closed valve on a return line. You will just need to open the valve.
5. Make sure that your pump strainer basket and pool skimmer basket are not clogged.
6. Make sure that your pump impeller valves are not clogged.

Usually caused by a small air leak somewhere on the pressure side of the system. A check valve on the line coming out of the pump going to the filter will solve problem.

We can't get the pressure up, the basket won't fill completly up with water. The hayward veri-flo is old and doesn't catch real well in each notch. Do you think we should replace it?


Failure to fill the basket completely means you have an issue at the pump basket (gasket), connection from the pump front to plumbing (threads need re-tightening or tape) or some other condition allowing air into the system between the pump and pool. This problem cannot be caused by the filter head. The problem is on the "suction side". From the top of the pump out all the way to the pool is the "pressure side" and would cause another condition such as leaking water. Examine and tighten everything before the pump and check the pump lid for possible gasket replacement. Rob
