SOURCE: 1/2hp Hayward Pump for existing inground pool

you will be fine with the 1/2hp. The Hayward will move quite a bit of water as well. It may not move as much water as the 3/4hp but it's very close and the 1/2hp will cost a little less to operate so if anything, you may just have to run it for one additional hour per day to compensate. You will be surprised how much water a 1/2hp will move. The only issue with smaller pumps is if you have pop-up cleaner heads or a suction driven automatic cleaner such as a kreepy krauly, however, if a 3/4hp will run it, a 1/2hp will run it as well. You can install a larger motor on the super pump but it will not move more water unless you upgrade the impeller as well. Just make sure you don't use a bigger impeller than what the motor is rated for because it will strain the motor and cause it to overheat. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My brand new Hayward super pump motor is

While it is always possible the motor is bad 99 times out of 100 it is a connection issue on-site that leads to this. Based on your description it is usually a motor set for 230V that is only getting 115V. It will run if started while "cold' but rather quickly it will overheat and trip the overload. Once it cools again it will kick back on however it will run far less time before it shuts off again. This cycle repeats itself, each time the motor running for a shorter period of time.
Measuring incoming line voltage to ensure it is correct both statically and once under load is the only way to verify the issue is the motor and not the connection or line side of the electrical system. Make sure the voltage selector on the rear of the motor is set to match that incoming line voltage once measured with a meter.

sounds like the bearings are going out on the motor. The noise will increase as they wear out more until it locks up and throws the breaker. You can have the motor rebuilt or just replace the motor. Consult a pool professional to help out with this.

I have voltage to a Hayward Tristar pool pump...won't run!


Thank you for posting your question here on Fixya.com.

If you are certain of your test results and the line connections being on the correct terminals in the motor the only explanation is an open connection within the motor and the need for it to be repaired or replaced. Of course if it tests fine on a bench even after your trial on site it would seem far more likely there is a wire in the wrong spot. Triple check the connection diagram on the motor to your lead placement one more time and if you are sure everything is as it should be you’ll need to have it looked at be a motor shop to see if the motor can be repaired for a cost that is reasonable compared to the price of new.

Was pumping good, water level got low and pulled air. Pump now has very low flow. Pump is a SP3207EE


If it ran very long you could have overheated the plumbing and now you might be leaking air. If you can get it to run right by putting glue around the suction pipe at the pump while running this is your problem. If so you will need to replumb pump. Do the suction and the discharge as that will probally leak also.

Pump motor runs very shot time turns on and off continuously


You have to go by the name plate connection for correct voltage and two speed operation. Check name plate and verify incoming voltage. Connect motor accordingly.

Hayward Heat Pro Electric won't stay running


from the Hayward support site....

Why is my pump cutting off and on every 5-10 seconds?
  • Hayward motors are factory wired for 240 volts unless the motor is 120 volts ONLY. Check the voltage of the incoming supply power and ensure the motor is wired or can be wired for this voltage (data plate on motor will help provide voltage and wiring information). Also check for loose or badly connected wires. Contact a certified electrician for repair.
