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 just had a new pump installed and it is making a squeaking/chirping sound. Has anyone had this issue or does anyone know what might be the cause.
Hi John, A loud motor is normally due to bad bearings. I would get in touch with your installer or the manufacture to have them check to see if the motor is bad and if so have it replaced under warranty.
Can the piping be 1 1/2" since I am connecting to existing piping? Just trying to upgrade suction a little.
Hi, The Sta-Rite Max-E-Pro 1 1/2 HP Up Rate Std (P6RA6F206L) has 2" union ports, you will need a PVC reducer if you want to use 1-1/2" pipe.
What is the difference between Up Rate and Full rate pumps?

Replaced the identical pump motor and complete unit including strainer basket, housing, etc. Replaced an old unit that was at least 8 years old and considering that we live in Florida where the unit runs all year, it was amazing it lasted that long.
Was easy to replace with the identical unit (have a small waterfall so the same unit with the same output level as important. Just used a screwdriver, a strap to release the existing piping and wire cable nut from the motor, a screwdriver, and a small nut driver to remove the nuts on the wiring as well as the bolts holding the motor down to the concrete pad. Had a wire pliers available as well in the event the cables would have needed to be reset.

Pros: Quiet Operation
Cons: Damage during shipping
Great product that was easy to install. Very quiet operating. Unit was repacked for shipment to me and was damaged upon arrival. Damage was minor to the cover of the capacitor and a broken screw for the back cover. As pool was out of commision, I chose to repair rather then return.
