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.

Asked on 05/29/2015 by Wally

Should this pump work at a distance of 30' from skimmer at 18' above pool

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/30/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.


Asked on 05/09/2015 by Dave Dunn

What is the GPM for 1-1/2" pipe

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/09/2015 by Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.


Asked on 05/06/2015 by dale

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?

Inyo Answer

Answered on 05/06/2015 by Product Specialist Lennox H.

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


Asked on 10/30/2014 by Ron Rasmussen

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.

Inyo Answer

Answered on 10/30/2014 by Product Specialist Alex V.

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: 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.
