pool company lied to you. efficient motors are mandated on new total pool installs. existing pools can be repaired or replaced. consult with your local pool pump motor repair guy or electric motor repair shop for advice. asking the pool store is like asking a car dealer for advice. not all pool stores are the same BUT

I meant "lurking" in the internet forum sense, since it looks like you joined in 2012 but that was your first post. :)

Wow, I don't think I've ever seen a motor with Al windings. Must be a hot mess, literally.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

You don't seem interested in getting rid of the pool, but we did after our kids were grown and out of the house. It was the best decision we ever made. I spent many weekends repairing the automatic pool cover or pool sweep. My wife had to fish leaves off the cover with a long scoop during winter and balance the chemicals weekly all year long. We probably put in 10 hrs/wk on that thing and never used it. It didn't have a heater so just wasn't comfortable enough except for a three months a year. The kids played in it and had friends over, so it was worth it when they were young, but later, no. When we had it taken out our electric bill dropped $50/mo and we saved big on chemicals, too, in addition to the time and hassle factor. We have health club memberships and could swim laps there if we wanted to.

Hi,

I am thinking of buying Hayward SP2610X15 with 1.5 HP, a dimension of 10 x 12.3 inches and a weight of 40 pounds. Should I buy this?? What about its performance??

Thanks.

I really hope that in 6 years that pump has been replaced...

I've got 3 pumps for my tub x2 1/2HP and x1 1/4HP (filter pump only). I keep a spare one on the shelf now. Because if one dies then the circulation stops and the heater can't work, then things freeze when it's -20F out and bad things happen. I get less than a day between pump death and burst pipes so, spare pump on a shelf.

That would require lots of replumbing and reprogramming. Everything is smart enough to monitor pump currents and actual flow rates. If the pump is drawing current but making no flow (potentially clogged or dead) it will stop giving it power. It would be a pain to wire in anything supplemental that wasn't supposed to be there unless it was "dumb" and just ran continuously. And then that would cause other errors because flow would be detected when the pumps weren't running which would cause errors for sensor malfunctions during the calibration that runs every time it starts up. Oh well.

Yes you might need a flow switch to disable the second and a relay to limit power detection.

Or just a manual switch if you get an error message would keep you above freezing with little effort until the failure could be attended.
