Some of them don’t like the product. Some of the complaints were there was no on and off switch. Also the power cord was too short. But most people love it and recommend it. Take this review for instance:

When our pool pump decided not to work anymore i needed to get one quick. We had a Hayward before and that lasted about 14 years so i was very happy with that. I decided to get another Hayward since mine lasted so long. My husband had it set up in no time and running. It is more powerful than the one i had previously which is great. Our older one was only a one horsepower pump so we decided to go with a little but more powerful one this time. It works great and really circulates well. I am very happy i decided to get this pump.

and this...

Had a 2 1/2 horse power pump from Rec. Warehouse would only put out 10-12 psi and was very noisy. Installed this Hayward SP1580X15 Power-Flo LX Series Pump 1-1/2 Horse Power.

Putting out 15psi and very little noise from pump. Only draw back is it only has one speed HIGH. Time will tell how well it works. I believe for the money you can not beat it, Rec. Warehouse wanted over $300. The pressure coming out of the return hose is great. Hope this helps you!
