Main Features of NE6171B Maxi Replacement Pump
• Self-priming Pump
This 1.5-hp, rated at 110-volt motor pump is self-priming, meaning it does need to be primed before operation. The pump has the ability to prime itself without human intervention. The water is stored via sump pit (such as skimmer) then piped to the suction side of the pump. However, it is recommended to double check its strainer basket if with enough water as a matter of inspection prior to starting the pump.
• Durable Materials
This product is made from durable polymer that does not corrode and rust, giving you the edge against conventional metal pump (example is cast iron) which easily corrodes especially when treated with chlorine. This truly prolongs the life of your pump.
This Blue Wave NE6171B pump could suck and deliver water at 62GPM at normal feet of head (20ft.). Remember that the suction power of a pump depends upon its distance from the pool (specifically the skimmer), but putting the pump assembly too near the pool is also not recommended as water splashing will put the electrical parts in jeopardy.
Better to locate the pump assembly near the pool but in safe distance. Cover also the parts that need to be protected from rain or splashing water.
• Interchangeable Connection, Clear Lid
The pump has 2-port design (1 ½-inch diameter suction and discharge) making it to mount in either horizontal or vertical connection in no time. The lid is also conveniently clear and very large to figure out easily what’s inside and for easy cleaning.
