 I would like to replace our Hayward Super Pump self-priming, Model #C48K2N143B1 with a Hayward Variable Speed Pump at I HP or 2HP or whichever you recommend. The pool is 20X40 and holds 22,600 gallons.

Thank you

Hi, Rob,

I appreciate your help in answering my question and steering me in the right direction. I will definitely be replacing the whole pump as the pump we have is on its last legs. 

Thank you so much for your assistance

Hello Eve - If you want to replace the complete pump, we recommend the Hayward Super Pump model W3SP2603VSP. That is a 1.5HP variable speed pump that runs on 230v. Click Here to View More Details on the Hayward W3SP2603VSP  

If you want to replace the motor and keep your existing housing, you could use part number ECM16CU. That is a 1.65HP variable speed motor. Click Here to View the ECM16CU variable speed motor

If you decide to replace the motor, we recommend replacing the seals. The seal kit is GOKIT3. Use GOKIT3SALT if you have salt water.
