 This replacement pump motor does not comply with California's Efficiency Regulations. These regulations can be found in Title 20, in the California Code of Regulations (CCR) sections 1601-1609. To meet California’s requirement, the replacement pump motor must be a variable speed.

To comply with current and upcoming regulations we recommend upgrading now to a variable speed motor.
We recommend using Century EVC225 2.25THP Variable Speed Motor
