Is your pool pump motor running loud, leaking or humming? These are all signs that it’s time to be replaced. The PL2072 PureLine Replacement motor is designed as a drop-in replacement motor for some of the most popular 3/4 HP pool pumps like the Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, Dyna-Glas, Dyna-Max, Pentair Whisperflow and Pentair Pinnacle and many more.

The PureLine replacement motor is made of the highest quality components like sealed ball bearings which means it is an ultra quiet motor. Because of its high-quality construction, the PureLine replacement motor is backed by a full 1-year warranty.

When it comes to replacing your motor Inyo has you covered we have created a ton of resources to make this project a snap, like our Video on How to Replace a Pool Motor this video walks you through all the steps to replace your motor. Most of our customers decide to tackle this project on their own and by following our video they complete this project in about an hour.

When replacing your motor we highly recommend a tune up kit which includes all the seals and gaskets for your pump.

I have loud bearings on my pool pump motor. I am going to attach photos of the motor late and also the pump plate. Can you confirm that this motor will fit and also supply me with the appropriate item # to order the tune up kits so that I may replace the motor myself.

The PL2072 may work but the drop-in motor replacement is the USQ1072

hI, I HAVE A MODEL MPRA6D-146L 3/4HP. I need a new water pump, a water pump that replaces this model that I wrote. What water pump do you recommend?


A  Answered on 2/20/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. This PL2072 is the correct replacement motor for your model pump. You will also need the Tune Up Kit Sta-Rite Dyna-Glas & Dyna-Max - GOKIT47. If you want to replace the entire pump you can use the PL2601 - PureLinePrime 1HP Pool Pump.

What is the distance from your pump to your skimmers so I can calculate the flow rate for you.

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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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 InyoPools Product Specialist 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.
