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.

What is the "functional" difference between P6E6E-206L and P6EA6E-205L? I see the first has a motor service factor of 1.65 and the other 1.25. Will one have a higher flow rate than the other? Will the motor on 206L be expected to last longer than the other due to having a higher service factor? Is there an operational difference in the "full rated" unit and the "uprated" unit?
The difference is going to be that the full rated pump has a total horsepower of 1.65 and the uprated has a total horsepower of 1.25 so a difference of 0.4 HP which is going to increase the flow rate. As far as durability, they'll be the same.
(5 out of 5 stars) Great pump!!

Pros: Quiet; Maintenance Friendly
Cons: None yet
I had problems with a Pentair Whisperflo for a few years and decided I finally had enough. I went for this pump because of the quick release bezel and unions. It is much quieter than the Whisperflo. It seems to deliver more flow too.
(5 out of 5 stars) Excellent inground pool pump
Reviewed By: Robert from Milwaukee , Wi. ()
Pros: Great pump, quite, lots of suction power, larger basket for long times between clean outs.
Cons: Instructions need to be made clearer on the installation of the pump.
Overal the pump took about two hours to install by myself. It worked fine from the, offering greater suction than the old pump, quiter operation, and much easier clean out with the quater twist off container cap. The pump does run warm, on days in the low 90's the pump is hot to the touch, but it cools off at night and as the temperatue drops outside. With the greater pressure the pump offers, I am finding that keeping the pool clean is taking about half the timne that did in the past. In all it is good product at good price.
