This is genuine brand-new Tiger River Spa Silentflo 5000 circulation pump (part number 74427 aka E5-NSHN1_14) that replaces all of the previous versions of the Watkins SilentFlo® 5000 and Watkins SilentFlo® 5002 circulation pumps.
This new design uses less electricity and moves more water per minute than the older circulation pumps (20% more than the SilentFlo® 5000).
This small circulation pump is used on the following models:
The new E5 circulation pump is designed to replace your SilentFlo® 5000 and SilentFlo® 5002 with no retrofits to your tub. The sunction/inlet is 1-11/16" from the floor and the return/discharge is 4-1/4" off of the floor which is the same as the SilentFlo® 5000 and SilentFlo® 5002). The impeller is accessible by unscrewing the top ring off the pump for easy access for cleaning if needed. Installation instructions are included.
Please note that it does not come with a cordset, so you will have to use the one from your existing pump. If a new one is required please call our store, or write note in comment section of ordering process.
Tech Note: This pump should NOT be operated without water present in the spa. If a "dry run" occurs , the pump has an internal safety device that will automatically shut it down. To reset this pump simply power down the spa for 30 seconds then power it back up.
Replaces old part numbers 34378, 74416, 73588 and 73491.
