Hi all, my 1.5hp Starite duraglas 1, P2RA series pump shaft seal is leaking, so I decided if I was going to do that I would look into a 2 speed motor. There is a guy selling pumps on craigslist that was a warranty person for Jandy and has a lot of 2 speed motors for sale. He only has round flange pumps and from what I can tell I have a square flange motor. He tells me that he has an adapter that converts to a square flange. He also tells me that he has shaft seals.
So my question is
1. Do all pump housings use the same size shaft seal?
2. Does Jandy make most of the pool pump motors?
3. Can you retrofit a round flange using a square flange adapter and will the shaft be the same length for the impeller to line up properly in the impeller housing?
I welcome all thoughts and experiences on this matter.
