Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry Very Reliable Pool Pump
I've been running this pump every day for 3 years now without any problems whatsoever. I replaced my previous pump which failed after about 4 years of operation. I picked this one up from my local Home Depot and installed it in about an hour. As previously mentioned in one of the other reviews the lion share of the work required was to reconnect the piping to the new unit. Once connected this pump worked as advertised. It’s quiet and very efficient. I have a large pool and this unit moves enough water to the filter to keep it clean in all conditions. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking for a reliable and efficient pool pump.

This is the 2nd pump we bought. The first one locked up after 1 1/2 use and the second locked up after using it for 1 year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dave Great pump but it has its quirks
The pump was easy enough to wire up and install-- only took a few minutes. Works perfectly. My only observation otherwise is that is seems to become noisy in cooler weather--- giving off a loud version of the 60-cycle hum. On warmer days it makes little sound at all

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zedhed 15000 gallon pool 3 15" sand filters 7 spray outlets AWESOME performance
I am useing this pump to run our 15000Gallon pool and it is doing a great job. I have had it installed and working 24\7 for 2months (as of 8/1/14) and it is doing a AWSOME! I have it running through 3x 15" sand filters and out putting that pressure back to the pool with 7 3\8 spray outlets one of which is our pool slide. Quite on noise. I have to go check on it to see if it is running it is so quite..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NeedsNewPump Broken after 2 years
This pump only lasted 2 summers (2012-2013). It worked fine during that time, powerful and quiet. But when I turned it on for the first time this year (2014) and it is leaking through the housing. The system was completely drained over the winter, so the damage wasn't due to freezing of water in the system. Unfortunately it only has a 1-year warranty.

Purchased this pump from my local Home Depot store 6/29/14 and on 7/25/14 the product seized up. Returning it for exchange 7/26/14. The definition of insanity...keep doing what you're doing and expect a different result.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RD28 Great Purchase
I have a 30,000 gal in-ground pool. While out of town over a long-weekend the bearings went out on my existing pump motor. Pool supply store wanted $300 for the motor plus $70 for the impeller plus $20 for the shaft seal. Since the existing pump was over 10 years old I shopped around for a full replacement. Found this 1.5 hp Flotec and decided to give it a try. Total cost of the entire new unit was less than replacing the motor, etc on the old pump. Easy to install, the most difficult was removing the old pump and redoing the 2" PVC pipe to install the new Flotec. The pump was easy to connect to my existing wiring. Overall it took me about 2 1/2 hours to complete the removal of the old and installation of the new Flotec. I turned on the switch and the pump is running flawlessly. It's also very quiet. This was a great purchase and I would recommend the pump. I will write another review in about 6 months.
