Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent value for the price! After many years I've bought and used several different types of pool pumps. The best way for me to get a decent pump for a decent price was to watch the pump auctions on Ebay and at the last second put in a bid if the price was below average. Little did I know that Home Depot had an excellent pump - it is powerful, quiet, simple to install, and does an excellent job of moving the water fast. The price is literally hundreds less than retail pumps of the same quality. And best of all, I saved another $35 in shipping charges by having it shipped to my store for pickup. I highly recommend this product to anyone in need of a replacement pool pump. April 30, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good solid pump, easy installation Pump arrived ready to install. It came with two adapters and pipe thread tape. Items they didn't have to include but sure made the process of installation much quicker. Pump has been running now for about a month with no issues. June 11, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet, efficient pump Kit came with pump, two fittings (one for waste, one for return) for hose clamp-type connections, and plumbers / teflon tape. Did NOT come with nuts/bolts to fasten pump to plate or stand. Can use either 1/2" or 9/16" bolts/washers/nuts. Pump does NOT have an on/off switch - need to manually unplug pump for any maintenance or cleaning. LOVE the clear lid. VERY easy to remove. Pump might run a bit hot, but it doesn't bother me yet.
