MAX-E-PRO PUMPS By Sta-Rite
SUPERIOR HYDRAULIC DESIGN MOVES MORE WATER, RESULTING IN LOWER ELECTRICAL COSTS
This new high efficiency, low maintenance pump is designed for maximum performance for the modern pool. Advanced state-of-the-art hydraulics means that Max-E-Pro delivers more water resulting in lower electrical costs. It will keep your pool crystal clear as well as run your automatic cleaner and any other hydraulic accessories around your pool. Not only is this pump energy efficient, it is ultra quiet. Special dampening in and around the pump’s base makes Max-E-Pro one of the quietest pumps in its class.
The extra large 6” trap collects more debris, allowing you to clean the trap less often. Our clear see-thru lid allows you to check for debris without removing the lid. The new Quick-Lock trap cover ring makes loosening or tightening the trap a cinch. Max-E-Pro is self-priming and produces enough suction to lift water 5-feet above pool level. Large 2” ports include external and internal threads to adapt to a variety of pipe sizes.
The Max-E-Pro is built to last, constructed of Sta-Rite’s glass reinforced resin that is corrosion-proof and can withstand many years of U.V. sunlight. This season, invest in the energy efficient, low-maintenance pump that really moves the water – Max-E-Pro by Sta-Rite. 110/230V UL Listed and NSF. Backed by a 1-Year Warranty.
I have an older (Appx 28 yrs old) sta-rite P2R-A5E with 3/4 horse motor, presently having a 42 GPM flow rate alternately serving a 13,000 gallon pool and a 500 gallon hot tub, works well. I want to purchase a back-up pump if this one gives up. Wondering if a 1 HP would be over powered + my pump has 1 1/2 inch inlet/outlet. I need an exact fit (I don't want to have to deal with re-plumbing) needs to be fast and easy in this application. ..and quiet is a big plus. Thanks for your advice! John
You will need to confirm the model number on the filter to determine if it can handle the increased flow rate. The Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro 1 HP Up Rate Standard - P6RA6E205L will provide an approximate 65 gallons per minute at 50' of head. This is the direct replacement to your pump. The filter offers 2" ports, you will need to purchase threaded adaptors that reduce to 1.5" for the installation. If you click on the tape measure below the image of the pump on the product page, it will provide you with all measurements to compare to your current pump.
Will this pump match up fairly closely with the max-e-glas 1/2 hp pump I currently have ? If not what pump would be most suitable. The max-e-glas I have is a PE series and is 13 years old.
Yes the max-e-pro will match up fairly close. Another option is one of our Speck pumps that was made so that the hook ups match up perfectly with the max-e-glas. Here's a link to those pumps.
Bought this pump 2 years ago and will not turn on without me removing back and twisting shaft to get it started. Do I need a new motor? if so which one?
Dennis, The replacement motor for your Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro 1 HP Up Rate Standard Pump is an A.O. Smith 1 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor (USQ1102), also recommend getting a Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro Tune Up Kit (GOKIT79).
I ordered a 1 1/2 go pump the old one was 1hp can I still use the existing piping with the 1 1/2 hp
You could use an up rated 1.5HP but I would not recommend the full rated 1.5HP.
Whats the difference between p6e and p6ra models?
Hello Dennis - The difference between P6E6E206L and P6RA6E205L is the difference between a Full Rated (Energy Efficient ) and a standard motor. We have great guide on explaining the Difference Between Full Rated and Up Rated pumps which may be helpful. They will produce the same horse power, just the Full rated would be more efficient at doing it.
