Spa Pump for Sundance Spas
We no longer assemble the pump (Sundance does not have the 6500-261 as a complete pump) see 6500-343 as current replacement. See Related Products.
6500-128, 6500-261, 6500-761, 6500-343

New Motor from US Motors with Sundance/Jacuzzi Piranaha Wet End

Comes Complete with the motor and wet end/pump housing. Does not come with the power cord or Hose Barb 6540-171*

Specifications
  • 240 Volt
  • 2 Speed
  • 12.7/3.4 Amp (measured at 4.5 HP). 10.0/3.0 Amps (measured at 4.2/2.5 HP with Sundance/Jacuzzi Wet end)
  • 4.2 Brake HP, 2.5 HP continuous duty wetend
  • 48 Frame
  • SPH30FL2S

The difference in the Factory Pump and ours is that ours comes with the original welded bracket on the motor instead of the separate bracket mount currently used by Sundance. Ours replaces the original welded on bracket found in your spa. We use the original motor manufacture (US Motors/Emerson)with the Jacuzzi Brands/Sundance Spas wet end used in that time period. Also the warranty on our pump is 1 year versus the Sundance OEM 6500-343 which is 6 months.

  • We only use a Viton Seal in our wet ends for long life. The viton seal is designed for harsh chemical environments such as salt, ozone and chemically treated water. Because of their better durability these seals are more costly than a standard seal used by most of our competitors.
  • Please note: This can be used for other Sundance pumps by adjusting the position of the wet end. Simply loose the rear 4 bolts (this is a thru bolt motor) and turn the wet end to the position of the original pump then retightening the 4 bolts. We send the pump in the 6500-261 position which is the 1:30 position.
  • * The 6540-171 Hose Barb is used on many of the Sundance/Jacuzzi Pumps (you would need to verify) and was originally made of plastic which eventually fails. Please note that the threads are NOT standard MPT threads and you cannot use an over the counter hose barb (from a Hardware Store). If you do it will strip the threads and cause leakage and ruin the Pump Housing (not covered under warranty). See the Related Products below to purchase this item.

This motor comes with a 1 year warranty from date of purchase.

Used in the following Sundance Spas:
  • Altamar - 1998-2004
  • Bahia - 11/2002-2006
  • Burlington - 2008-7/2010
  • Calypso - 1997
  • Calypso I - 1991
  • Cameo - 1997-2004, (replaces the 1997-1998 Aquaflo "XP" 6500-757)
  • Camden - 2007-7/2010
  • Certa - 2007-7/2010
  • Chelsee - 2007-7/2010
  • Hamilton, Hartford and Hawthorne - 2007-7/2010
  • Madison and Marin - 1998-2005
  • Majesta and Maxxus - 1999-2004 (#1 pump)
  • Optima (1997-2003)
  • 2005-2009 (end date changes with different models): Sundance Spas went to the 6500-343 on most models listed. The difference is that the pump and motor did not have a welded foot bracket so that the pump would fit any configuration. Pump housings are universal and can be rotated to any configuration. This can be used for other Sundance pumps by adjusting the position of the wet end. Simply loose the rear 4 bolts (this is a thru bolt motor) and turn the wet end to the position of the original pump then retightening the 4 bolts.
Used in the following Jacuzzi Spas*:
  • 2002-2003:J-330, J-340, J-350 J-370, J-380 Pump #1
  • 2004:J-385, J-375
  • 2005-2006:J-230, J-385
  • 2007: J-230
  • All J-200 and J-300 Series pump housings are universal and can be rotated to any configuration. 

*Also called Jacuzzi Piranha Pump

Wiring Diagrams

Wiring PDF Download

Please Note
We include the wiring diagram for your motor which is also on the ID plate of the Motor. The Motors are 240 Volts with 4 wires: Red (High Speed), Black (Low Speed), White (240Volt Common) and Green (Ground). Please note the manufacture of your motor and select the correct wiring diagram. It may vary from your original wiring on your original spa motor.

Single Speed Use: This 2 speed pump is used as the primary pump but can be used as a single speed. If you need it to run as a single speed, then you would would not hook up the low speed wires. Hook up the Black (High Speed) and the White (240Volt Common).
