NOTE 1: The pump photo shown to the right does not show a capacitor mounted on top of the motor. We cannot guarantee if the motor that is shipped will or will not have the capacitor attached on top of the motor. Make sure there is plenty of room under the spa for a motor with 6 inches long x 2.5 inches tall x 2.25 inches wide capacitor on top of the motor.

The pump image shows the pump discharge on top pointing to the 12 o'clock position. The pump discharge can also be rotated every 90-degrees (3, 6 or 9 o'clock positions) by loosening the four long bolts at the back of the motor. The pump intake (suction) is located in the front center face of the pump.

The pump normally ships from the factory with the discharge pointing "UP" which is the standard position for shipping, but they can be turned or what is called "clocked" into any position (12, 3, 9 or 6 o'clock position). Rotation of the pump discharge can be done in the field, but we recommend having it performed by a professional spa technician who is experienced. Or choose the option to have the pump professionally rotated at the factory before it ships. This is to avoid water leaks and operational problems due to improper removal and installation in the field that will affect the warranty. As you face the front end of the pump wet end, available positions are 12 o'clock (Up), 3 o'clock (Right), 9 o'clock (Left), and 6 o'clock (Down, which is very rare).

If buying this pump as an exact replacement that does not require retrofitting, it is highly recommended to replace the pump union o-rings at the same time. Old pump union o-rings may cause leaks that can damage the new pump and affect the warranty. O-rings for pump unions are only available with a pump union purchase.

Keep in mind that if your pump is rated 56-frame, you might want to consider the 56-frame Pump

Is Your Pump Above the Water Line?

If you need to install your spa pump near or above the waterline - as is common for in-ground spas - you will need a PUMP POT. The pump pot help prevents water from draining back into the spa when the motor is turned off

The Center Discharge Pump is a replacement option for the following Waterway E-Series and Aqua-Flo FMCP Pump models and part numbers: 3420620-15, 3410610-15 (1SPD), 02615005-1010, 1-00-0029, 02615205, 02615020, 02515000-1010, 02615005-1, 3420620-15BS, 02515515-2 (AF FMCP 1.5HP 115/230V CD; Must Confirm Motor Voltage), 303627 (Must Verify Voltage), Leisure Bay 303655, 342062A-15

Our Center Discharge Pump is also the replacement option for the "Relia-Flo" pumps by Caldera Spas. Verify motor amp rating and voltage, the pump discharge type and size fitting to match. Note that the new motor will not have the cover with heat vent connection. The original motor cover with heat vent connection may be used on the new motor if it fits, otherwise retrofitting a heat vent is required.
