are the water input and output 1 1/2 " male or female ?
Garry C on Dec 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The unions are 2" female.
Is this model suitable for in ground or above ground use only?
Andy on Apr 28, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I am using it for an in-ground pool but I see no reason that it is not suitable for either. My machine area is equivalent top that of an above-ground pool relative to elevation and exposure. Go to the Waterway Plastics website and they have a comprehensive library of product specifications and manuals.
Can this pump control a salt chlorinator?
A shopper on Mar 22, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I don't think it can control it directly. I have both my salt water generator and pump tied into the same terminals on my intermatic timer so they both turn on at the same time.
Is there any special seal that needs to be added to protect motor in a salt pool application?

Great pump
I purchased this pump to replace an aging single speed pump that was making a lot of noise. I had never replaced a pump before, but was easily able to cut out the old one and get this one in place in a couple of hours. The installation directions are pretty terrible, but it's pretty intuitive if you are familiar with the way these work and basic plumbing. Once installed, it was pretty easy to figure out how to program and it runs great. It's super quiet and very flexible in it's programming. Much simpler than the Pentair I had at my previous house. I would highly recommend.

No diverter valve
Once set up this pump does great, but it comes with no manual so you'll have to get online to find it. Its advertised as having "patent pending technology automatically actuates a diverter valve to direct the flow of water to the pressure pool cleaner and increase the pump speed and pressure." In fact it DOES NOT have this. There is no mention of it in the downloaded manual and the company never responded.
