When a pool or spa pump stops working, it's often the motor that's at fault. So, what do you do? If it is just the motor, don't worry, there's no need to replace the entire pump. Simply purchase a replacement pump motor to get your pool or spa up and running.
If it's time for you to replace your pump motor, here are some things you need to know. First, the motor and the pump are made by different manufacturers (ex. You may have a Hayward pump with a Century motor attached to it). Because of this, the pump itself is not the best reference to use when searching for the motor. The easiest way for you to find the right replacement is to look at the nameplate on the motor itself. Find the manufacturer's name and the part number.
Next, enter that part number into our convenient search engine at left. If you find what you think is the right motor, compare the specs to your original motor to ensure a match. Comparing the photos is another good way to further confirm the right motor, but don't merely choose your replacement based on the picture.
What if you can't find what you're looking for? Don't worry. We offer many motors not listed on our website, and all of them come with our low price guarantee. If you don't see it, there's a good chance we can still get it to you. Just let us know what you are looking for.

One final note: When replacing a pool or spa motor, it is recommended that you replace the shaft seal as well. This is a small, round, two-piece seal made of metal, rubber and ceramic. It is located on the end of the shaft next to the impeller and prevents water from penetrating to the motor bearings. This is a pump-specific item, which means the pump, rather than motor determines which shaft seal you need. If you provide us with your pump manufacturer and the model/series of the pump, we can determine if we can offer you the correct replacement.
