I bought this as an identical replacement(same model) for my 6 year old pump. I'm keeping this new one on a shelf ready to swap out with my old one as sometimes my six year old pump won't start for awhile after I unplug it to clean the filter. It might have a short or something I'm not sure, then I'm about to give up and swap out the pumps and the original pump magically starts working again. In my book, a pump model that lasts 6 years with no maintenance or issues until just recently is amazing. So, I bought another as backup for when that old one finally won't start anymore.
