You are buying a 4 HP 48 Frame Waterway Executive 2 1/2" X 2" Wet End / Pump and Bleeder Barb Kit complete with Screws, Volute, Impeller, Seal, Face, Wear Ring, Bleeder Barb and Silicon. The Bleeder Barb Replaces one of the plugs and is used to reconnect your previous 3/8" bleeder hose that was on your previous pump.. The difference between a 48 or 56 Frame wet end is the spacing of the Motor Thru bolts. The 48 Frame will be 3 5/8" between or 5 3/16" in a X Pattern and the 56 Frame will be 4 1/8" Between or 5 3/4" in a X Pattern. The pump amperage will be about 14.0 Amps at 230V that this wet end fits.. There are no 4HP at pumps that are 115v..
Note: A regular 2" pump union fitting measures about 3" edge to edge but this wet end is different on the front suction side and it measures about 3 5/8" edge to edge so be sure your wet end has a large suction side fitting before ordering this..
Look on the label of the motor for the two amperages if you have a 2 speed pump, if its a single speed look for a single amperage. It will look something like this: 10.0/3.5 The 10.0 is the high amperage in this example. 8.0 = 1 HP 10.0 = 2 HP 12.0 = 3 HP 14.0 = 4 HP 16.0 = 5 HP NOTE: Your pump or motor may say a different Horse Power than what you see here, DO NOT go by what is listed on the motor, go by the amperage on the label. NOTE for the NOTE: TRUST ME ON THIS, everybody lies about their Horse Power. But the amperage does not lie. Most people are told they have 5 HP pumps, if you do the math two 5 HP pumps at 16 amps is 32 amps. Plus a 5.5 KW heater is 21 amps. That means with both pumps running and the heater on it will draw 53 AMPS. I bet your HOT TUB is on a 50 AMP breaker. Therefore contrary to what you have been told you DO NOT have a 5 or 6 or 7 Hp pump.
