Hi,
Is there a coverplate where the wires come out of the pump? If so, remove the plate and there should be a wiring diagram inside.
Good Luck

SOURCE: why does the spa empty when the pump shuts off?

This problem can be caused by a couple things. the two most likely culprtits are either the absence of check valves and or incorrect actuator settings when the pump shuts down.

Your spa is most likely higher than the pool. You most likely have a spill over (waterfall) feature from the spa into the pool. This is so the spa water can be recirculated in pool mode. One of your actuator valves may be slightly off closed position in order to allow spill over in the spa, or you may have a dedicated overfill pipe in the circuit to feed water to spa in pool mode.

Whichever spill over piping you have set up, when the pump shuts down, water from the spa ( higher level than the pool) will backfeed through the overflow spa circuit, back through the pump and into the pool through either drain or return. Effectively rendering your spa level the same level as your pool.

To fix this problem, simply install check valves into the spa runs and as a secondary measure put one into the pool return run ( the run that feeds water to pool).

This will insure that when the pump shuts down, no matter which position the valve actuators may be set, water can not back feed through the pump circuit from spa to pool.

SOURCE: How do you remove the impeller

Take off the back of the motor, put a wrench on the shaft and turn the impeller by hand to loosen. It may be reverse threaded.

Replacing a waterway 56 executive spa pump 3 hp with 4 hp. how do I wire plug into 4 hp pump


The pump motor should have a label on the side of the motor showing a diagram for Common, High speed, Low speed and the right positions for the connections.
Common is always the white wire
High speed is normally red
Low speed is Black
Green wire is always green

I need to clean the fiter basketon my Waterway pump system. How do I keep from pouring out once I remove the filter cover?


You should have a valves on the hoses from the skimmer to the pump & the pump to the return.
If you don't have these valves then the pool is draining into the pump from the skimmer and/or return. If you do not have any valves block the skimmer and/or return port & isolate the pump so you have clean the basket.

NOTE don't forget to open the valves/ unblock the lines when you turn the pump back on so it does not burn out.

I have a Waterway 48-Frame 2HP 115v pool pump for my above ground pool. I just purchased it about 2 weeks ago from Rec Warehouse. It was working good no problem for about a week and half then all of of...


Check to see that the pool pumps mounting is secure. Loose mounting could cause the motor to run loudly. It could be bearings rubbing or a bent shaft. If it is new, this should not have happened. If you check the mounting and feel that it is secure, I would return the pump to an authorized Waterway service agent and let them look to see if the bearings or shaft are damaged. I would do this quickly while you can still return the pump if its defective.
