If you’ve ever had to replace a handle on a Pentair 14971-SM10E1 pool pump, then you know it can be a daunting task. It’s not a complicated process, but there are a few steps involved that can be confusing if you’re not familiar with the process.
Fortunately, if you follow this guide, you’ll be able to replace the handle on your Pentair 14971-SM10E1 pool pump in no time.
The first step is to prepare the handle.
You’ll need to remove the old handle and discard it. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to take your new handle and attach the screws that come with it to the backside of the handle. Make sure they’re tight but not overly tight.
The next step is to attach the handle to the pump.
To do this, you’ll need to remove the four screws that are holding the handle in place. Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to slide the new handle into place, making sure the four holes line up with the screws on the pump. Once the handle is in place, you can use the screws to secure it.
The final step is to reattach the pump cover.
To do this, you’ll need to remove the screws that are holding the cover in place. Once you’ve done that, you can slide the cover back into place and secure it with the screws that were removed earlier.
And that’s it! You’ve now successfully installed a new handle on your Pentair 14971-SM10E1 pool pump. If you follow these steps, you should have no trouble replacing your handle and getting your pump up and running again.
