Here is a diagram of detailed pump parts for your reference:


  1. I brought one two years ago for my above ground pool,the rsp10 and after two years the lid has broke. I would recommend going with another product.

    • if its the clear lid they get fragile if exposed to the sun, get a black plastic one and they are much more durable, but gosh dude, 2 years is good for a piece of plastic exposed to the elements. I am very pleased with mine, it runs all the time and the motor is still going fter several years.

  2. Call me about my pump 517 542 3570 your can`t get past your phone people to get a positive answer –Do they run the company???—you might want to find out!!!

  3. I have a Water Ace Punp Model Listed 96R5. The motor has quit running but will hum.
    It is a GE 5KC38SN2535DX 1.5 HP – RPM 3800. Where can I get a new motor or have this one repaired?

    • Art it sounds like your impeller is shot, if the motor is huming its most likely ok, get a new impeller and save yourself some cash!

  4. I have a Wayne 1 hp swimming pool pump (or had) it’s in parts. It is a pile
    of CRAP. Totally done after only 3 years. I definitely do not recommend
    anyone purchase this product.

    • Hi Heather,

      What didn’t you like about it?

      Did the motor go? Did the seal start leaking?

      Let me know, I would be interested in hearing your story,


      • Hey Joseph:
        I plugged it in being the start of pool season and it was seized. I un-seized it and it ran but was more
        noisy than usual. As a few days went by I just unplugged it because it was very loud. I figured bearings so
        I tore it down. The bearings at the wet end were gone so bad it somehow damaged the rod. I did take it to
        my repair guy and he couldn’t even get the bearing off-they even heated it. Good news though, he gave me
        a rebuilt one for $90.

  5. Hi;

    I have a 96R5 that is noisy at the pump area. It sounds like it might be the impeller scraping against the pump well (or whatever that is called).

    I took it to Leslie’s supplies here in Tampa and the guy suggested that it might be the seal and/or impeller that are giving problems. Leslie’s does not service that pump and neither does any other regular pool supply place. I bought the pump at Lowe’s but they don’t carry that model anymore and they also don’t carry or order parts.

    I’m not sure of what the exact problem might be with the scraping noise, but, even if I wanted the parts or service for it, I can’t find it anywhere.

    Any suggestions?

  6. I need the electrical schroud for the rear of the motor. One of the contacts was loose and melted part where it connects. I need either the contacts or the entir schroud including the contacts.

    • Hi, James.
      You would need to contact either the manufacturer directly or affiliate vendors who carry the parts. For your convenience, we updated with the detailed pool pump parts diagram.

  7. I have a water ace sump pump. I use it to water my garden. The pump is model R6S it is 1/6 horse. I need to find a power supply cord for it.

  8. I need a new part for my pool pump. it’s a 1.5 HP Water Ace on your diagram it’s part number 5. Impeller # on the back is 25054B003 (best I can read it anyway)

  9. Well I think I bought and placed the rsp15 around 10 years ago it is now priming and was told it had been squeeling for about a week before this the lid and lid gasket got replaced what next
