Replaced an aging (and leaking) single speed pump with this one. I did not have to modify my existing plumbing as I replaced Hayward with Hayward which was nice. Unfortunately the instructions did not come with an indication of which screw terminal is for what. Kind of important with a 2 speed pump. It took me a while of digging on the internet to figure it out. Dinging a star for that and for their stupid warranty practice. The only way to get more than a 90 day warranty is to have a pool professional install it. That's $400. For something that took me a half hour. $400 for 30 minutes? $13 a minute? Really? So I figured heck with the warranty and I'll put the 400 towards repair or replacement if this pump fails. 400 will almost buy a new one and would only get me a year warranty. Of course Hayward isn't the only one I've seen with this dumb policy. They all have it. At least if I install it I know it was done right, no shortcuts were taken, and I don't have to check the "professional" work.
This is a 2HP repacement for 1.5HP pump. It does move a lot more water (on high) and I was able to open up my pool return ports with bigger openings for better flow. This pump requires a 2" in and 2" out minimum which I have on my pool. I'm guessing 1 1/2" would starve it for water or cause bad cavitation.
One additional beef - I don't like the o-ring placement in the lid. It's recessed pretty far which makes it difficult to clean before reinstalling. The water level in the pump is above the lid normally. So when you open the lid, water comes out and so does grass and whatever else the filter basket has stopped that will float. Some of it gets on the o-ring and is a PAIN to get to to clean it off before closing the lid. If you have trash on it you will get an air leak. My old Hayward pump was super easy to clean the o-ring before closing it up. Putting this lid on is easier though; the old one had 2 screw down points. This one is a twist on.
