Awesome Pump
I have a spa spill over waterfall into my pool and I've never been happy with the performance so when my pump went out I upgraded to this pump and I've never been happier. You won't be disappointed!!

Bad Boy
Please note: PolyTec has the "BEST" prices on these pumps. Update:9-5-18 I realized I had a major amount of leaves in my strainer basket, although my pump was not dry, it did not have water circulating through it like it should, this may have damaged the chamber (My bad). Update: 8-12-18 Have to replace my main pump again (after 4 years) I have a leak around the band. I installed a new diffuser with a new O-ring, and installed a new chamber (?) O-ring..Still leaking so I ordered another pump, and will inspect this unit when the new one arrives (same model). $650 (OTD) every 4 years is a little pricey. If the camber is cracked (shouldn't be) I will assume the engineers over at Sta-Rite are lowering the MTBF specs (which is B.S.). I have 4 of these pumps total, of which 3 were purchased in 2008. The main pump is the workhorse...but 4 years of service seems kinda cheesy. I need to upgrade my 3 old pumps (10 yrs old)...But I might look around if Sta-Rite is rolling dirty. I purchased this pump from Poly Tec pools ($599 OTD) This is a great pump, but it seems they have re-engineered the strainer basket and now it floats when you remove the strainer basket cover, which allows a small amount of debris to seep under the basket. I am not sure if Sta-Rite was just trying to save a buck (what company isn't these days), or if some engineer figured it would allow debris to enter the pump, and filter (yes I am cynical) and create a lower MTBF (google it). Also seems like everyone wants the new Pentair IntelliFlo VF Variable Flow Pump at $1400 ..ouch. I have 4 of these Max-E-Pros and I have gotten over 7+ years of service on my Primary pump (pool & spa pump). Sta-Rite (Pentair) is top quality, its "all" I will ever own. One more note, I notice a grinding sound when the pump is running. I adjust my poolside vacuum valve to the correct suction, and the grinding starts, when I lower the Vac suction (below specs)the grinding stops. My last pump made the same sound, and it gave me 7+ years of service..oh well.
