About This Item
The Tidal Wave 2-speed energy efficient above ground pool pump lets you choose the pump speed that best fits the job for great energy cost savings. Slower flowing water means less friction in your filter and plumbing system, and thus less energy usage, so set the pump to low speed for everyday operation. When more power is needed to vacuum the pool or run other accessories, switch pump to high speed. Featuring corrosion proof polymer construction that will deliver years of reliable service, these pumps also provide a convenient hair/lint trap to ensure crystal clear water. The Tidal Wave high performance pump is quiet, efficient and self priming. Top discharge design fits most filters and its extra large clear lid allows for easy cleaning. Replace your old inefficient pump with this 2-speed water moving dynamo. Comes with a 6ft cord – 115volt AC Available in 2 sizes: 1 HP and 1.5 HP
- Dual port design for either vertical or horizontal discharge; fits most filter systems
- Meets new local codes requiring energy-saving, multi-speed pool pumps
- 1750 rpm low speed - energy saving speed for normal operation
- 3450 RPM high speed - for extra power when using pump with additional equipment like a pool vacuum
- Not legal for sale in California
- Simply toggle rocker switch at the rear of the motor to change speeds
- Comes with power cord and fittings

Customer reviews & ratings
so far good product
Excellent Product at A Great Price
After searching many possible sources for this needed replacement pump , I found Wal-Mart's Price , Availability , and Fast Delivery to be Very Helpful.
Meets all expectations and a good price
Replacement for our above ground pool and seems to be very good so far.
Pump worked fine as a replacement for an old motor that finally stopped working. The 2-speed option also should help in reducing our electrical consumption.
Quiet, easy to hook up
Quiet, easy to hook up A very nice replacement pool pump. UPS screwed up the delivery of the first pump so I cancelled it and reordered. Unfortunately had I known lt would be 2 weeks instead of one I would have ordered the 1 1/2 horse but the 1 horse works fine.
Check Your Technical Measurement Requirements.
Seem like it will work just fine (it's October, so I won't know until next spring) and is one of the best deals I found after shopping around extensively (especially for a 2-speed). However, my 3-star review is based on the hookup measurements and placement for horizontal flow. The pump does have the optional hookup for horizontal flow, but you should be aware of the position of the output for horizontal flow. I was assuming the horizontal flow connection was standard, but this was not the case. I had to turn my base around so the pump could be lowered to match up to the connection to the filter. I was able to do this without too much trouble using some blocks/bricks, but am a bit worried about the extra stress at that interface from the pump not being secured to the base now.
I have bought from them before. No Problems....
I am not sure if I like the pump or not. I cannot use it as of yet. It did not specify what size hose would fit on this pump and my hose from my pool is just a tiny bit smaller than what goes on the pump. So now I am trying to figure out just exactly what I need to make it fit.
Blue Wave 90 day pump, don't expect much more.
Bought this on US Deal Mall marketplace last June, worked fine for the next 3 months. Stored it and took care of it as I had the pump before which lasted 15 years+. This one leaked and ran weak when I set it up this year. Neither US Deal Mall of Blue Wave will do anything for you. It's basically a disposable, 90 day pump at best.
