How to Find the Correct Swimming Pool Pump Motor

If your swimming pool pump is starting to run loudly or making strange noises, it might be time for a new pump motor. Though replacing a motor can seem daunting, we’re here to help you easily identify your replacement motor.
Starting off, It’s important to note, the total horsepower (Service Factor x Horsepower) of your new motor needs to be greater than or equal to the total horsepower of your old motor. Below is a picture of a pump label, where you’ll find all of the information you’ll need when purchasing or replacing your pool pump motor.

We’ve highlighted the most important considerations: horsepower, voltage, amperage, hertz, service factor, and phase. Matching up these items on your new pump will ensure that your water will be filtered correctly. We also recommend that you purchase a go-kit that includes new shaft seal gasket and other miscellaneous gaskets and seals that should be replaced.
Now that you have a idea of what you will need, replacing your pool pump motor yourself will save you money and make you more knowledgeable of how your pool filtration system works.
