I have the C48K2PA105C5 pump that has gone out completely and am ordering this as a replacement. Are there any other parts I need to order or is this pump ready to go as a replacement once I install it? The pump  housing is a Pentair SuperFlo high performance pump P/N 340038. Thanks!

A     Answered on 3/21/2017 by Andy O.

Hello Luis-  We would recommend also purchasing the Tune Up Kit Pentair SuperFlo - GOKIT78 to go with your USQ1102 and superflo pump.

I have a pool pump motor #C48L2PA105C4. Looking at your USQ1102, is it the same?

A     Answered on 3/15/2017 by Andy O.

Hello Ward- No the A.O. Smith 1 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor USQ1102 is not the correct replacement for your pump motor. You will need the A.O. Smith 1 HP Square Flange Full Rate Motor - SQ1102.

?     Asked on 3/9/2017 by Dan Rosales

I have a pool pump motor that was running, I turned it off to clean the filter and now it will not start. It is hot to the touch. The motor is a 1 hp Emerson 1081 with a 4 bolt flange. Would it be cheaper to rebuild it or purchase a replacement?

A     Answered on 3/9/2017 by Hector F.

In some cases it is cheaper to rebuild the motor by replacing the bearings but that is not always worth it if the body of the motor is corroded or there are other internal parts that have burned up. Motors are designed to run hot at around 140 degrees. Most pool owners replace the motor in these instances though. You would need to know the model or part number of the motor and front pump housing that the motor bolts when calling in to place an order.

I was told this motor could replace my current one (Model# K48L2PA101A1). I noticed the total HP on my current motor is 1.65 and the SF on mine is 1.65, these are slightly different from your motor. Is this motor compatible for me?

A     Answered on 3/9/2017 by Stacey M.

Hello David, This K48L2PA101A1 matches 1.0 HP Full Rate EE Motor (B864SE) - QC1102. I would highly recommend a pump seal or GOKIT when replacing your motor. We would need a pump model number to find the pump seal or GOKIT you would need.

Thank you for your prompt answer regarding pump model C48AB45A01. The replacement motor model USQ1102 has a square flange (or bottom). The motor being replaced has a round flange (or bottom). Will this affect the installation of said replacement motor? Thank you again for your assistance.

Hi, Nancy. This will not affect the installation process.

Would this pump be compatible with Stai Rite Max E Pro Hp-1 Model K48l29a105

A     Answered on 3/7/2017 by Scott W.

Yes, that is the correct replacement motor for the Max-E-Pro and the shaft seal is part number 5057-30. The shaft seal needs to be replaced every time the motor is replaced.

?     Asked on 2/22/2017 by Eric magelssen

Will this motor marry up with the Sta-rite pump model # P2RA5E-1811 ?

A     Answered on 2/22/2017 by Stacey M.

Hello Eric, Yes the USQ1102 is the correct frame size that will fit with your P2RA5E-1811 StaRite model pump. Please make sure when replacing the motor that you also get a GOKIT which will replace your pump seal and orings.  Depending on which model you have Pre 1998 GOKIT6 and 1998 to present GOKIT54, the difference is the GOKIT6 is the pump seal kit if you have a copper cone and you can use GOKIT54 if your not sure whether you have a copper cone or not. You can remove the copper cone and use GOKIT54.

A     Answered on 2/14/2017 by Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. The USQ1102 motor is the correct replacement for the P2RA5E-181L model pump. You will need the Sta-Rite Dura-Glas & Max-E-Glas Tune Up Kit GOKIT6 (Pre-1998) or GOKIT54 (1998-Current).

I have a Hayward in-ground pool pump motor with noisy bearings. Mod.# C48D31A04. Will this motor be compatible? If so, What seal kit do I need?

A     Answered on 1/30/2017 by Scott W.

Yes, the USQ1102 would be the correct motor replacement. I need to know the model of your pump to figure out the correct seal kit for you though. If you do not know please attach a side view picture of your complete pump so I can identify it for you.

?     Asked on 1/26/2017 by ANNETTE DOMINGUEZ

I am replacing just the motor and I noticed on the old one there is a rubber thing around the spindle but the new one doesn't have that. So I am wondering do I have to order that part? Or is that not necessary anymore? Thanks,

A     Answered on 1/26/2017 by Alan M.

The rubber grommet around the shaft of the motor is called a water slinger. Its purpose is to help deflect water away from the bearings behind the faceplate of the motor. You can use the one from the previous motor or here is a link to the available water slinger parts.

?     Asked on 12/27/2016 by Tim

Hi, my pump bearings are starting to whine but I cannot find a part number for the pump anywhere. The pump is a Century HSQ125 and the model number is C48AB45A01. It ran dry somehow and got hot so I am assuming that the shaft seal got damaged. The pump is not even 2 years old so what I'd like to do is replace the bearings and seal. Do you carry these particular parts? I'd also like to know the part number of this thing since everyone seems to be asking me this same question.

A     Answered on 12/28/2016 by Adam Y.

Good morning Tim, The bearings you are looking for are # 6203. If you type that in on our search bar it will give you a few different options. I would need to know what type of pump you have to recommend the seal. You can also type the model pump in with parts at the end and determine what type of seal you need. If you any help with this you can call us at 877-372-6038.

Good morning Mark,You would want the shaft seal 5250-104 and the seal plate o-ring, 5056-06, would be a good one to get as well while you have it apart. The water slinger should still be good.

?     Asked on 9/16/2016 by glenna

my motor just quit yesterday and from all info i see on it the USQ 1102 is the correct replacement. I have a HP of 1. Would it help my old pool if I upgraded to a 1.5 or 2 hp motor? Before it quit it wasn't pulling the water all the way to the top of the basket. If a 1.5 or 2 might be better, could you send me the model numbers and prices. thank you very much.

A     Answered on 9/16/2016 by Alan M.

Hello Glenna, First let us address the fact that your pump basket would not fill to the top (prime). This is an indicator that you have an air leak either around the pump lid basket or possibly where the valves are before the pump. Changing to a stronger motor would not correct this problem. Second, I would not recommend upgrading your motor unless you have added features to your pool (ie. solar panels, hot tub, fountains) or if you have been experiencing issues with your pool not receiving proper filtration. An increase in the horsepower will improve the circulation, but keep in mind that you may need to change parts on your pump as well to accommodate the higher speeds.

Hi, i have a Hayward Max Flo II and the motor is getting very loud. The motor currently fitted is AO Smith 1HP 48Y Square flange 1.25SR. Model C48D31A04. From the details, this motor is the one i have, but the listing says for my pump i should have the different flange. Can you confirm whether this motor will fit (it seems to be fitted now), if so which shaft and pump seal kits i will need for a full overhaul. Thanks in advance.

A     Answered on 7/2/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Chris, The USQ1102 motor can be used as a replacement for the Hayward Max Flo II pump. There is not a tune up kit available for this pump the seals will have to purchase the parts separately. The parts can be found via the Hayward Max-Flo II Pump Parts page.

Hi Bryan, yes this is the proper replacement motor for the Sta-Rite P2RA5E-181L Dura-Glas pump. You could go up to the 1.5 HP Dura-Glas Replacement Motor but you will need to replace your 1 HP impeller with a 1.5 HP Dura-Glas impeller.

These are tell tale signs that the motor is on it's last legs. Possibly able to be rebuilt it but at 8-10 years old, I would not advise to do that.

The USQ1102 would be the direct replacement for the motor that your currently have and would properly fit on your P2RA5E-181L.

I'm trying to replace the motor on my pool pump but all these numbers and abbreviations on the motor label are really confusing me. What do they mean?

Why should I purchase a Tune Up Kit?

A     Answered on 1/12/2012 by Patrick P.

A Tune Up Kit includes all of the essential replacement seals and gaskets for the pump. The seals and gaskets should be replaced when installing a new motor on your pump. New seals will prevent the pump from leaking water or losing the prime. A Tune Up Kit will protect your motor and ensure that the pump is working efficiently.

Why do I need to purchase a new shaft seal?

A     Answered on 1/12/2012 by Patrick P.

We strongly recommend replacing the shaft seal. The purpose of a shaft seal is to prevent water from running down the shaft of the motor and into the motor housing. Water will damage the bearings and cause the motor to fail. A new shaft seal should be installed whenever a motor is replaced. The motor manufacturer can deny the warranty if the motor fails to due to water damage from a faulty shaft seal. To find your shaft seal you will need to visit our Pool Pump Parts Page or the Spa Pump Parts Page and select your make and model.

What is Service Factor?

A     Answered on 1/11/2012 by Patrick P.

Service Factor(SF) is a multiplier that when multiplied by the horsepower of the motor indicates the total permissible horsepower loading that may be carried when the motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency. The most important thing to remember when replacing a motor is that the replacement motor's horsepower times its service factor must be equal to or greater than the original motor's horsepower times its service factor. The Service Factor rating can be found on the motor label. See Step 4 of our How to Read a Pool Motor Label guide.

Noisy pump motor

Written on 10/30/2016 by Guest

Had outstanding response from Hector Flores at Inyo Pools when I asked about a replacement for my Sta-Rite pool pump motor. He responded promptly and we put together an order to buy a replacement motor and replacement o-rings kit, at an excellent and affordable price. The order was placed and the unit received within a couple of days. I had a local pool man install the motor and it works great. Hardly know its running. The original motor lasted just over 7 years. Living here in Florida, the pool pump operates approximately 8 hours per day, 7 days a week and 365 days per year. The motor fit perfectly and works great. Above all, I could not be happier with my experience with Inyo Pools. Thank you.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  Excellent Pump Moter Replacement

from Clarence, NY ()

Pros: Awesome fit - excellent replacement

Cons: none

Tip to get the impeller off the old pump moter: use a 7/16" open ended wrench - it slides in near the capacitor on the electrical side... rotate the impeller until the wrench slides into place at the end of the shaft and then one person holds the motor and the wrench while a 2nd person loosens the impeller off with bare hands by turning the impeller counter clock-wise.

 (5 out of 5 stars)  My new pump motor

from Grand Rapids, MI ()

Pros: Just a great product at a great price!

Cons: There ARE none!!

I received the motor on the day promised, and installed it easily, thanks to emailed instructions, and diagrams. Especially important were the hints on how to lock the old motor shaft to remove the pump impeller, and to reinstall it in the new motor. The new motor is running like a champ, and is so very quiet. I am very pleased with this product, and this on-line shopping experience!
