48 Frame Versus 56 Fram Spa Pumps

There are a couple of ways to determine what size frame motor you have. Generally speaking, you can look at the motor specifications located on the top or side of the motor, or you can measure between the thru bolts. These are the bolts that run the length of the motor and screw into the four legs of the wet end volute or seal plate. Since all manufacturers do not do everything the same way, the best way to determine is by measuring the distance between the thru bolts. This is consistent with all motor manufacturers. See the example above.
