Contrary to the advice given when selecting a filter, a bigger pump is not always a good thing. Unless you have been advised by a pool professional, or someone in the know that your existing pump was undersized, it would be wise to keep the same horsepower as you have now.

I replaced impeller and the housing cover doesn't fit


Compare old and new impellers, the new one must be bigger. Return it for the correct one.

Brand new motor replaced old pb4. After installation it just hums and does not pump. Before installation it works fine without water going through? Any body know what is wrong?


Double check the wiring installation. One wire wrong will stop it. Don't let it hum! Compare old motor to new, are they the same voltage? Can you rotate the motor by hand? It should be free.

I tried to replace an A.O. Smith B615 pump with a new one but the shaft doesn't seem long enough to reach the threaded nipple int he impeller. Help?


I suggest you compare the new motor with the old motor. If they are different then you need to get the right one.

I hope this helps.

The jacuzzi magnum force pump can it be used for a fish pond


This is a lot of pump for a fish pond. You should use the safe-guards as you would find in a pool, two drain's separated by 3 or so feet and/or a couple skimmers. You dont want the fish getting pulled into the drains/skimmers. It will also be a lot of $ to run the pump compared to a smaller 'fish pond' pump ... of course your pond may be much larger than the average garden variety.

Personally, I dont think this is a good idea for a small pond. Tell me more about your pond.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

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...


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 bought type a-c filters at walmart. they don't seem to fit right and the pool flow is slower. is there aanother type filter i can purchase?


I would buy the specific filter you need, not an "A slash C" designed to fit both. Various places online sell these and are about half priced compared to walmart. Check Amazon for a starter.

Whirlpool Pump - Hums, no water flow...


The impeller and/or motor shaft is stuck or seized. If accessible you can try rotating the motor shaft with a visegrip plier or similar tool to see if it will come lose. Otherwise you should consider having the pump taken out and overhauled. Often the shaft seal begins leaking and result in water damage to the motor bearings. Bearings can be replaced, but compare labor and parts for overhaul to simply replacing the whole pump.

Pump justs makes a buzzing sound and does not start


Either the start capacitor, start switch or winding, or perhaps some combination of the three is failing. You can take it to a local electric motor repair shop and see if it can be repaired or get a cost to replace just the motor and probably the pump seal. You would still save money compared to the cost of a whole new pump.
