The USQ1152 Replacement Square Flange 1.5 HP Pool Pump Motor is a very reliable motor. This 1.5 HP replacement motor is manufactured by AO Smith, now Century Electric, and will include the manufacturer’s one year warranty.
AO Smith motors are the same motors that are used on many of the major pool manufacturers (Hayward, Zodiac/Jandy, and Pentair/Sta-Rite) pumps, making them the true OEM replacement part. If you look on your current motor label, you will most likely see both the pump manufacturer’s name, and then “Made by AO Smith” smaller towards the bottom.
The USQ series motors are the replacement motor for many popular pool pumps and some well pumps. Some of the pumps include: Pentair WhisperFlo, Sta-Rite Dura-Glas, Max-e-Glas, Dyna-Pro, Max-e-Pro, Challenger and more. **We still recommend confirming the motor replacement if your existing motor doesn’t show the USQ1152 model number on the label. You can send a picture of your label to us using our motor replacement form for assistance, found here.
A.O. Smith was recently acquired by Century Electric Motors.You can expect the same great quality motors from Century Electric. Motors are now labeled as Century Electric formerly A.O. Smith.
When replacing your pool pump motor, Aqua Supercenter recommends that you also replace your pump shaft seal or purchase a Go-Kit that includes a pump shaft seal and other wear items. Need help determining which Go-Kit or Pump Seal you need? Check out our Go-Kit & Pump Shaft Seal Replacement Guide.
