Removing an old Sta Rite Max-E-Glas 2 Pool pump motor and installing a new pump motor. When the old pump motor started making a high pitched sound it was time to replace it. The motor ran for several hours everyday for 11 years and the bearings had finally given out. Instead of buying it from a pool supply store I looked up a local electric motor supply store on the internet and saved about $100 on the cost of the motor- All you need are the old motor specs in order to get a suitable replacement. When replacing be sure to purchase new shaft seals, turbine gasket, and pump housing gasket, silicone grease, and waterbased silicone grease.
