Pool & Spa Parts
OEM Pool Parts
All replacement parts are OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), except where otherwise specified. Pool pump and filter parts, like o-rings and gauges have generic options, as do filter grids and cartridges, but if you see the manufacturer part number listed as Manuf#:, you can be certain it is not a generic replacement. All parts are new and carry manufacturer warranty; we do not sell used pool equipment parts. Many electrical parts are not be returnable, and other items carry a 30 day return period. See our complete returns page for more information.
Help Selecting Pool Parts
Our pool technical support department can assist you with advice on the parts we sell, but we stop short of providing exact diagnosis and identification of the parts needed to fix your pool equipment problem. Not being there, in the field, with diagnostic tools, can lead us ~ to lead you, astray (or vice-versa). Yet we are glad to help, in any way we can! If you need help buying pool parts, give a call to our helpful pool parts personnel! You can also email your pool parts inquiry to sales or product sales @ poolcenter.com.
Know Your Make & Model
When searching for the correct pool equipment parts, it helps to know the exact make/model/Series of your pump, filter, heater. For example, the Hayward (Make) Superpump (Model) SP1600X (Series). Our website is laid out first by pool equipment category (pump, filter, heater, etc), and then alphabetically by manufacturer. If you don't know the make/model of your pool equipment, try to find a label that can give some indication. Write down any part or serial numbers or names. If this fails you, click through our schematic diagrams to find something that looks similar to your equipment. If you still can't determine the make/model of your equipment that you need parts for, take several digital photos, and send them to us in an email!
Pool Part Numbers
Most do not have the part number stamped onto the part - but some parts do, and will have the sku, or part number (pn), printed, molded or stamped into the plastic. The numbers are hard to see, when they are stamped and not colored, but can help if you are unsure of the Make/Model of your pool equipment.
Dashes or Dashless? Some part numbers have dashes, or trailing or leading zeros. If your part number has any of these and you are having trouble locating the part online, you may try searching without the dashes, or without trailing (or leading) zeros.
Part number, Model number, Sku, Serial Number. You may find many numbers on your pool equipment. Pool motors, for instance, have many numbers printed on the motor label, and only one of them is the Sku, aka Part Number. We list, on our pool parts pages, the "manufacturer's part number", and also an internal sku number.
Pool equipment owner's manuals are a valuable tool for the pool owner. It helps to have a printed list sometimes, that you can take out with you to the equipment pad, to help you identify the accessories or spares you need. Of course you can pull up our website on your smartphone or tablet, but sometimes a paper schematic is helpful. Owner's manuals also include installation information, performance data and troubleshooting guides.
We list many owner's manuals on the product pages (not in the pool parts department). If you would like to print out a .pdf owner's manual, for your particular piece of pool equipment, visit our Pool Store, and find your pool equipment. If we don't list the owner's manual on our product page, you can probably locate it on the manufacturer's website. Here again, it is very helpful to know your pool equipment Make/Model.
Owner’s Manuals often have a Problem-Solution type of troubleshooting guide in the last few pages. Also useful is the schematic diagram on our parts pages; the exploded diagram helps you see how the parts connect. Search engines can provide a jumping off point, searching on a well-thought out query with all pertinent information. Pool Forums, Q&A sites, and Pool Blogs can be searched to find the answers you need. Manufacturer websites sometimes make available tech manuals, in addition to owner’s manuals or use and care guides. Pool articles, like those found in our Pool Info section, can also be useful in understanding larger principles and granular details involved in a pool troubleshooting.
