We’re doing a lot of pump replacements this spring…

whew, now that the whilrlwind of May is behind us – we can focus even more on service. Of course just about everyone in Michigan wants to get their pool opened by the end of May so they can swim through June! Today was hot – and we got even more calls today about service to equipment.

One of the issues people are experiencing this season is a pump and/or pump motor that is seized up and needs to be replaced.

Our favorite pumps to install if this should happen to you are the 1hp Hayward Superpump, which is good for most installations.

Hayward Super Pump is an in-ground pool pump that is built to provide years of trouble-free service while providing enough power to keep your spa running at its best. Its motor was designed with efficiency in mind by producing more overall flow while using significantly less electricity, saving you money. Its casing design effectively cancels out most of the noise to make the Super Pump one of the quietest pumps available. This pump is constructed of corrosion-resistant materials and built to the exacting standards that Hayward demands of all its products, allowing you to buy with confidence.

All pumps up to 1 1/2 HP are designed for use with 1 1/2″ plumbing, while the 2 and 2 1/2 HP models are designed for use with 2″ plumbing.

For those situations where you need a bit more oomph we install the Pentair 1hp Whisperflo pump.

It is called a WhisperFlo High Performance Pump for good reason. Its proprietary hydraulic design, unique FunnelFlo diffuser, and high efficiency impeller work together to move water more efficiently than any other high performance pump. And the advantages don’t end there. WhisperFlo’s oversized strainer basket extends time between cleanings, and the unique Cam & Ramp lid is transparent and easy to remove, making inspection and cleaning simple and quick. Built with heavy-duty components that are resistant to chemicals and corrosion, WhisperFlo is a workhorse that will perform for years to come.

There’s a WhisperFlo to suit any residential pool application, with 115v and 208/230v single-phase, and 208/230/460v three-phase pumps from 1/2 HP to 3 HP. Both standard and energy-efficient models are available. (Also available in 50-hertz models). With so many performance and convenience advantages, it�s no wonder more than 2.2 million Pentair pumps have been installed worldwide.
