Above Ground Pool Motors

Long-lasting above ground pool motors featuring easy installation

Nidec Motor Corporation has been creating high-quality and energy-efficient above ground pool motors under its U.S. MOTORS® brand for several decades. Our innovative engineers take pride in designing reliable, moisture-resistant pool and spa motors that offer features like optimized air flow and multi-layer bearing protection. These motors are designed to be easy to install and often serve as low-stress, drop-in replacement options.


    AQUA-SHIELD EZ48™, part of the U.S. MOTORS® brand family of pool motors manufactured by Nidec, is designed to provide superior moisture resistance inside the motor where water and debris can damage windings and cause premature motor failure. The EZ48 features additional bearing protection like other AQUA-SHIELD motors.

    This motor delivers the three layers of bearing protection provided on our AQUA-SHIELD motors today (double-sealed ball bearings, lip seal and water slinger). In addition, the EZ48 features a new internal bearing cover that protects the drive end bearings from internal moisture. Optimized internal air flow minimizes moisture buildup inside the motor.

    With other features like voltage change at the flip of a switch, switch design that protects against corrosion and improved air flow that improves life expectancy by three times (based on tests), the EZ48 provides both efficiency and reliability.

    Don’t waste time and money. The AQUA-SHIELD EZ48 is one of the easiest and quickest 48 frame motors to install on the market today.
