Don’t you hate when a company stops making your favorite product? And people wonder where your trust issues stem from, right? The effects of discontinued pool pumps are frustrating pool owners across the country. If you are replacing your Sta-Rite pump, this blog is for you.
Honestly, every day we hear from pool owners looking to replace an older Sta-Rite pool pump. Some pool owners are lucky and have fewer space restrictions. Fewer space restrictions mean a bigger selection of pumps to choose from. However, some pool owners are in a less forgiving and tight situation. Typically, whenever a pool owner asked for the closest replacement to their plumbing, we recommend them to stay within the same manufacturer. It’s logical to think that the same manufacturer makes the closest replacement. It is not the case for the Sta-Rite pumps. If you are replacing your Sta-Rite pump, this blog is for you.
Speck Pumps created a line of pumps that addresses the need for drop-in replacement pumps. Released earlier this year, Speck birthed a wide- range of pumps that are an easy fit for several specific discontinued pump models. Now, pool owners who owned a Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Dura-Glas, and Dyna-Glas can purchase a new pump without having to replumb their entire pool system.
