It sounds like my bearings are shot on my Sta-rite Max-e-Pro 1.5hp pump (P6RA6f-206L). I want to replace the pump motor (C48L2PA105) with 2-speed motor with timer, link:
My current pump is UP RATE - 1.5hp single speed, 1.1 SF = 1.65 HPSF
Pump B2982T is a FULL RATE 1hp, 1.65 SF = 1.65 HPSF
Pump B2983T is a FULL RATE1.5hp, 1.47 SF = 2.205 HPSF
I wasn't sure if I should get the 1.5hp or the 1hp. Should I match the new pump to the HP (B2983T) or HPSF (B2982T) rating?
The pump runs the pool filter from 1 skimmer / 1 drain to 3 returns and a small waterfall (when waterfall valve is open). I have solar but it has a pump of it's own downstream from the filter pump.
