HAYWARD Hi-Performance SELF-PRIMING PUMPS
INSTALLATION AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Your Hayward Ultra-Pro LX pump has been quality-built
and engineered to give you many years of efficient,
dependable service. The non-conductive, corrosion-proof
motor housing provides protection from the elements and
insulates the electrical motor parts from outside contact.
The advanced design reduces operation and maintenance
to simple, common-sense procedures.
GENERAL TIPS ON PUMP INSTALLATION
STARTING AND PRIMING INSTRUCTIONS
For best pump performance, locate the system below
the pool water line and as close to the pool as possible.
If you own an above ground pool please see Note: NSPI4 Article V, for safe and proper installation of the
equipment package. Make sure suction joints are tight.
Suction pipe should be as large or larger than discharge
pipe.
Fill strainer/housing completely with water. Never
operate the pump without water. Water acts as a coolant
and lubricant for the mechanical shaft seal.
Damp, non-ventilated locations should be avoided.
Motors require free circulation of air to aid in cooling.
Insure that the electrical supply available agrees with the
motor's voltage, phase and cycle, and that wire size is
adequate for the HP/KW rating and distance from the
power source. Motor must always be properly grounded.
If cord connected, use only a properly grounded outlet.
Electrical circuits should be protected by proper size
ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). All electrical wiring
should be performed by qualified personnel and must
conform to local codes and regulations.
MAINTENANCE
1. Clean strainer basket regularly. Do not strike basket
to clean. Inspect strainer cover gasket regularly and
replace as necessary.
2. Hayward pumps have self-lubricating motor bearings
and shaft seals. No lubrication is necessary.
3. Keep motor housing clean. Insure air vents are free
from obstructions, debris, etc.
Open all suction and discharge lines and valves, as well
as air bleed (if available) on filter. (The air that is to be
displaced from the suction line must have some place to
go).
Turn on power and allow a reasonable time for priming.
Priming time depends on suction lift and length of
suction piping. If pump will not start, or will not prime, see
TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE on back page.
Note: NSPI-4 Article V, standard for above ground and
on ground pools, advises that components such as the
filtration system, pumps and heater be positioned so as
to prevent their being used as a means of access to the
pool by young children.
4. Occasionally, shaft seals must be replaced, due to
wear or damage. See instructions
STORAGE/WINTERIZING
Pump and motor must be protected from freezing. Shut
off all electric power. Disconnect cord/electrical
connections and plumbing connections. Drain
thoroughly and clean out any debris. Store pump and
motor in a dry, well ventilated room.

TROUBLE SHOOTING GUIDE
A. MOTOR WON'T START
1. Check for improper or loose connections,
open switches or relays, blown circuit
breakers or fuses.
2. Manually check rotation of motor shaft for free
movement and lack of obstruction.
B. MOTOR CUTS OUT – Check for:
1. Wiring, loose connections, etc.
2. Low voltage at motor (frequently caused by
undersized wiring.
3. Binding and overload. (Amperage reading)
a. If pump develops a vacuum, check for blocked
suction line or strainer, or air leak in suction
piping.
b. If pump does not develop a vacuum and pump
has sufficient "priming water":
1. Tighten all bolts and fittings.
2. Check voltage to make sure pump is up to
speed.
3. Open pump and check for clogging and
obstruction.
4. Remove and replace shaft seal.
E. LOW FLOW – Generally, Check for:
NOTE: Your Hayward pump motor is equipped with
Automatic Thermal Overload Protection. The
motor will automatically shut off, under normal
conditions, before heat damage build-up, due
to an improper operating condition, can
occur. The motor will auto-restart when safe
heat level is reached.
C. MOTOR HUMS BUT DOES NOT START
– Check for:
1. Centrifugal switch stuck in open position.
2. Binding of motor shaft.
D. PUMP WON'T PRIME
1. Make sure pump/strainer housing is filled with
water, and that cover O-Ring is clean and
properly seated. Make sure strainer cover is
locked firmly in position.
2. Make sure all suction and discharge valves
are open and unobstructed, and that pool
water level is above all suction openings.
1. Clogged or restricted strainer or suction line;
undersized pool piping.
2. Plugged or restricted discharge line of filter
(high discharge gauge reading).
3. Air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return
fittings).
4. Pump operating underspeed (low voltage).
5. Plugged or restricted impeller.
F. NOISY PUMP – Check for:
1. Air leak in suction causing rumbling in pump.
2. Cavitation due to restricted or undersized
suction line and unrestricted discharge lines.
Correct suction condition or throttle discharge
lines, if practical.
3. Vibration due to improper mounting, etc.
4. Foreign matter in pump housing.
5. Motor bearings made unserviceable by wear,
rust, or continual overheating.
