I have this pump and am looking to replace. I see the port size is 1.5". I have 2.5" dia pipe above ground between my electric heater, pump, and filter housing. The pipes transition to 2" dia between valves/levers, then finally to 1.5" diameter underground. Will my above ground 2.5" dia plumbing fit this pump? I assume it should since I already have this pump...
Hi, Brent. Yes, it will if you're measuring the pipes OD. The unions with this pump can be used with 1.5" or 2" pvc ID pipes.
Replacing bad pump. I have the PHK2RA6E102L now. I planned to buy the exact same pump, but wondering if maybe a larger pump would be better such as a 1.5 HP. No waterfall or hottub, but we have a few fountain jets. The pool cleaner doesn't seem to run suffienciently even when all other pipe circuits are closed. Any issues to consider with a potentially "oversized" pump?
Hi, Brent. You can go with a larger sized pump. The biggest this would be making sure your filter is large enough to handle the additional water flow.

What is the replacement motor for this pump?
Hello, the replacement A.O. Smith 1 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor - USQ1102 and we recommend changing a Pump Seal 200, Heavy Duty PS3867 (Saltwater Pools) - PS-3867
I have a Pentair Challenger 342248 pump. Leaks from the discharge side. Need to replace. We have 35.1 GPM & 46 feet of head. Is the 2 HP too much? We have an auxiliary motor for our Polaris pool cleaner. Both have timers for on/off functions. We have a hot tub and waterfall as well. Salt water pool. Please advise a good replacement pump.
Can just the motor for the Super Max 1hp Pump be replaced?
Yes, you can replace just the motor. If you have the original motor then the replacement would be the model B853.
Hi, Can I replace a Sta-Rite pool pump Model # C48K2P105 with the PHK2RA6E102L?
Hi, Don. Unfortunately, the Sta-Rite C48K2P105 is the motor number, not the pump model number. In order to confirm if the PHK2RA6E102L pump will work as a replacement, follow the steps in how How To Size a Pool Pump guide.
I need to replace a Sta Rite Duraglas P2RA5-E 181L. (1HP, 1 1/2 piping) will this pump replace it?
Hi, Marshall. Comparing the performance of the SuperMax pump to the Duraglas pump, the SuperMax 1HP pump will not replace a Duraglas 1HP pump. The Speck EasyFit MXG 1HP Max Rated Pump - IG281-1100M-0DG would be my recommendation.
what is the inlet height of the phk2rage 102l and height of outlet
The inlet height is 7.58" and the discharge height is 10.78".
we would like to know the total dimension of the PHK2RA6102L. So that, it would fit to the allotted space given. So its full specs
Hi, Gil. You can view the dimension for this pump via this link "Product Dimensions."
I have a sta-rite pump for my in ground pool that need replaced motor is making noises.Its a 1hp motor.I think the model # is MPE6E-206L 1hp dyna-pro, it has 2" inlets.I would like to replace it with the same or a newer model that matches up to the the plumping that I have now
The Super Max is only going to have 1.5" ports, but the Max-E-Pro, P6RA6E205L, has the 2" ports and would be a great replacement for your Dyna-Pro.
I have a sta-rite in ground pool pump.The motor is PLD36 dyna glas, the pump has # MPRAGE 1472 Code LL02F on it. I works fine but I noticed the filter is getting small circular pcs of plastic in it like 1/4" round white pcs. I guess the impeller is going? Whats your take on this?
If you open it up to look at the impeller and measure it, if it's less than a 4.75" diameter than your impeller is needing replaced because it's too small to pump the water.
I have a Sta-rite pump #P2RA5D-180L. Is the new PHK2RA6D-101L or 102L a good drop in replacement?
Hi Rodney, The best Drop In replacement we have found for the P2RA5D-180L Dura-Glas Pump is the Speck Easy Fit Pump, which is a direct drop-in replacement for your pump.
I HAVE A P2RA5E-181L WILL THE SUPER MAX 1HP PUMP REPLACE IT
Hi James, I would recommend the 1 HP Speck Easy Fit Pump as it is designed as a drop-in replacement for the Sta-Rite P2RA5E-181L meaning the plumbing ports match up in the same spot meaning no re-plumbing. The pump design on the Speck is really nice and is very efficient and pumps comparable water to your current pump.
Have a sta-rite model # P2RA5E-181L do you carry this pump or what can replace this pump for direct fit? Thank you
The Speck Easy Fit Pump would be a direct fit for your P2RA5E-181L Sta Rite Dura Glas pump.
How can I determing flow rate or GPM for my pool? 11,000 gallons and I should cut the timer back for winter hours.
Hi Greg, You would first need to calculate the feet of head of your pool. You can use our How Size a Pool Pump guide to calculate the feet of head of your pool. Once you have that figure you can then use the SuperMax Performance Curve to get the GPM.
WHAT IS THE INLET HEIGHT OF THE PHK2RA6E-102L?
Hi Ron, the inlet height on the Sta-Rite Super Max is 7.68" to the center of the intlet / suction port.
My P2RA5E- 181L Has been sparking and blowing the circuits . Burned out .... I need a replacement motor , if still available or do I need replace the whole thing ?
Debby - The replacement motor for your Sta-Rite P2RA5E- 181L pump is an A.O. Smith 1 H.P Square Flange Up Rate Motor (USQ1102).
Should this pump work at a distance of 30' from skimmer at 18' above pool
Hi Wally, Yes this pump would work at 30' on an above ground pool. We would suggest that you use a minimum of 1-1/2" pipe for your plumbing.
What is the GPM for 1-1/2" pipe
Hi Dave the maximum Gallons Per Minute (GPM) which can go through 1-1/2" pipe is 60 GPM so even if you had a 10 HP pump you will only be able to get 60 GPM through 1-1/2" pipe. So with this being said the max GPM for this pump with 1-1/2" pipe would be 60.
pool pump rated 1hp vs pump rated 1-1/2hp. what is the difference?. Also my old pump has 1-1/2" ports, do you still have this available. My pump is a sta-rite P2R5E-125L. Which is the best new match?
Dale, The difference between a 1hp and a 1-1/2hp is the power. The 1-1/2hp will circulate more water than the 1hp. Your Sta-Rite pump is no longer available. Speck EasyFit MXG 1HP Max Rated Pump
I need to replace my Sta-Rite P2RA5F-182 1 1/2 HP pump because it is leaking and losing prime. I am interested in the PHK2RA6E102L pump which 1 HP; it will save some power cost. I want to know if the inlet to the strainer assy. is the same height as for my present pump. My PVC plumbing is not alterable at the pump inlet.
Ron, Unfortunately they are not the same height. If you are unable to re-plumb a new pump, your best option would be to replace the motor and seals.
(5 out of 5 stars) Easy installation pool pump
Reviewed By: Mark C. from Livonia, MI ()
Pros: quiet, easy to install
Cons: I no longer have anything to complain about.
Installation of this pump and motor was a breeze. The product was shipped on time and just as advertised. I installed it in under an hour and was up and running. The pump is very quiet and delivers great performance. I am impressed with the product and the sales experience with Inyo Pools.
