INSTALLATION
Only qualified, licensed personnel should install pump and wiring.
Pump mount must:
Be located away from corrosive or flammable chemicals.
Have enough ventilation to maintain air temperature at less than the maximum
ambient temperature rating (Max. Amb.) listed on the motor model plate. If this
pump is installed in an enclosure/pump house, the enclosure must have adequate ventilation and air circulation to keep the temperature in the enclosure at
or below the motor’s rated ambient temperature whenever the pump is running.
Be solid - Level - Rigid - Vibration free - Non-combustible. (To reduce
vibration and pipe stress, bolt pump to mount.)
Allow pump suction inlet height to be as close to water level as possible.
Allow use of short, direct suction pipe (To reduce friction losses).
Allow for gate valves in suction and discharge piping.
Have adequate floor drainage to prevent flooding.
Be protected from excess moisture.
Allow adequate access for servicing pump and piping.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high temperatures.
To reduce the risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the motor, let it
cool for 20 minutes before trying to work on it.
NOTICE: Use Teflon tape or Plasto-Joint Stik1 for making all threaded
connections to the pump. Do not use pipe dope; pipe dope will cause stress
cracking in the pump.
NOTICE: Pump suction and discharge connections have molded in thread
stops. DO NOT try to screw pipe in beyond these stops.
Teflon Taping Instructions:
Use only new or clean PVC pipe fittings.
Wrap male pipe threads with one to two layers of Teflon tape. Cover entire
threaded portion of pipe.
Do not overtighten or tighten past thread stop in pump port!
If leaks occur, remove pipe, clean off old tape, rewrap with one to two additional layers of tape and remake the connection.
NOTICE: Support all piping connected with pump!

Piping:
Use at least 1-1/2" IPS PVC pipe with 5” (127mm) trap. Use at least 2” pipe
with 6” (152mm) trap. Increase size if a long run is needed.
To avoid strains on the pump, support both suction and discharge pipes
independently. Place these supports near the pump.
To avoid a strain left by a gap at the last connection, start all piping at the
pump and run pipe away from the pump.
Never use a suction pipe smaller than pump suction connection. To avoid
airlocking, slope suction pipe slightly upward toward the pump.
NOTICE: To prevent flooding when removing pump for service, all flooded
suction systems must have gate valves in suction and discharge pipes.
Fittings:
Fittings restrict flow; for best efficiency use fewest possible fittings.
Avoid fittings which could cause an air trap.
Pool fittings must conform to International Association of Plumbing and
Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) standards.
To reduce risk of suction entrapment, do not exceed the rated flow rate of the
suction fittings.
POOL PUMP SUCTION
REQUIREMENTS
Pump suction is hazardous and can trap and drown or disembowel bathers. Do not use or operate swimming pools, spas, or hot tubs if a
suction outlet cover is missing, broken, or loose. Follow the guidelines below
for a pump installation which minimizes risk to users of pools, spas, and hot
tubs.
Entrapment Protection
The pump suction system must provide protection against the hazard of
suction entrapment or hair entrapment/entanglement.
Suction Outlet Covers
All suction outlet covers must be maintained. They must be replaced if
cracked, broken, or missing.
See below for outlet cover certification requirements.
All suction outlets must have correctly installed, screw-fastened covers in
place.
Testing and Certification
Suction outlet covers must have been tested by a nationally recognized testing
laboratory and found to comply with the latest ASME/ANSI Specification for
Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool
Bathtub Applications.
5
Outlets Per Pump
Provide at least two hydraulically balanced main drains, with covers (see Page
5), for each swimming pool pump suction line. The centers of the main drains
(suction fittings) must be at least three feet apart.
The system must be built so that it cannot operate with the pump drawing
water from only one main drain (that is, there must be at least two main drains
connected to the pump whenever it is running). (See Figure 2). However, if
two main drains run into a single suction line, the single suction line may be
equipped with a valve which will shutoff both main drains from the pump
(see Figure 2).
More than one pump can be connected to a single suction line as long as the
requirements above are met.
Water Velocity
The maximum water velocity through any suction outlet must be 1.5 feet per
second unless the outlet complies with the latest ASME/SNSI Specification for
Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools, Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool
Bathtub Applications. In any case, do not exceed the suction fittings maximum designed flow rate.
If 100% of the pump’s flow comes from the main drain system, the maximum
water velocity in the pump suction hydraulic system must be six feet per second or less even if one main drain (suction fitting) is completely blocked. The
flow through the remaining main drain(s) must comply with the latest
ASME/ANSI Specification for Suction Fittings For Use in Swimming Pools,
Spas, Hot Tubs, and Whirlpool Bathtub Applications.

ELECTRICAL
Ground motor before connecting to electrical power supply. Failure to
ground motor can cause severe or fatal electrical shock hazard.
Do not ground to a gas supply line.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock, turn OFF power to motor
before working on electrical connections.
Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) tripping indicates an electrical
problem. If GFCI trips and will not reset, have a qualified electrician
inspect and repair electrical system.
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Exactly match supply voltage to nameplate voltage. Incorrect voltage
can cause fire or seriously damage motor and voids warranty.
If in doubt consult a licensed electrician.
Ground pump before
connecting to
power supply.
Voltage
Voltage at motor must be not more than 10% above or below motor nameplate rated voltage or motor may overheat, causing overload tripping and reduced component life. If voltage is less than 90% or more than 110% of rated
voltage when motor is running at full load, consult power company.

Grounding/Bonding
Install, ground, bond and wire motor according to local or National Electrical
Code requirements.
Permanently ground motor. Use green ground terminal provided under motor
canopy or access plate (See Fig. 3); use size and type wire required by code.
Connect motor ground terminal to electrical service ground.
Ground wire must be a copper conductor. It should be the same size as the
current-carrying wires to the motor, but not smaller than No. 12 AWG.
Bond motor to pool structure. Use a solid copper conductor, size No. 8 AWG
(8.4 sq. mm) or larger. Run wire from external bonding lug (see Fig. 3) to reinforcing rod or mesh.
Connect a No. 8 AWG (8.4 sq. mm) solid copper bonding wire to the pressure
wire connector provided on the motor housing and to all metal parts of the
swimming pool, spa, or hot tub and to all electrical equipment, metal piping
or conduit within 5 feet (1.5 m) of the inside walls of swimming pool, spa, or
hot tub.

Wiring
NOTICE: For 575 volt models, consult a licensed electrician.
Pump must be permanently connected to circuit. See Figures 4A, 4B and 4C
for wiring connection diagrams. See Table I, Page 9, for correct wire and circuit breaker sizes for the pump alone. If other lights or appliances are also on
the same circuit, be sure to add their amp loads to pump amp load before figuring wire and circuit breaker sizes. (If unsure how to do this or if this is confusing, consult a licensed electrician.) Use the load circuit breaker as the
master on-off switch.
Install a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) in circuit; it will sense a shortcircuit to ground and disconnect power before it becomes dangerous to pool
users. For size of GFCI required and test procedures for GFCI, see manufacturer’s instruction.
In case of power outage, check GFCI for tripping (which will prevent normal
pump operation). Reset if necessary.

OPERATION
NOTICE: NEVER run pump dry. Running pump dry may damage seals, causing leakage and flooding. Fill pump with water before starting motor.
NOTICE: Maximum ambient temperature for motor operation must not exceed maximum ambient temperature rating on motor model plate.
Before removing trap cover:
1. STOP PUMP before proceeding.
2. CLOSE GATE VALVES in suction and discharge pipes.
3. RELEASE ALL PRESSURE from pump and piping system.
4. NEVER tighten or loosen clamp while pump is operating.
If pump is being pressure tested, release all pressure before removing
trap cover.
Do not block pump suction. To do so with body may cause severe or
fatal injury. Small children using pool must ALWAYS have close adult
supervision.
Fire and burn hazard. Modern motors run at high temperatures.
To reduce the risk of fire, do not allow leaves, debris, or foreign matter to collect around the pump motor. To avoid burns when handling the motor, let it
cool for 20 minutes before trying to work on it. An automatic internal cutoff
switch protects single phase motors from heat damage during operation.
Hazardous suction.
Can trap hair or
body parts, causing
severe injury
or death.
Do not block
suction.
Priming Pump
Release all pressure from filter, pump, and piping system; see the filter owner’s
manual.
In a flooded suction system (water source higher than pump), pump will prime
itself when suction and discharge valves are opened.
If pump is not in a flooded suction system, unscrew and remove trap cover;
fill trap and pump with water.
Do not lubricate the trap cover O-Ring. The original equipment O-Ring contains a permanent internal lubricant.
NOTICE: If you replace the O-Ring with a non-internally lubricated O-Ring,
you may need to apply a silicone based lubricant.
Clean and inspect O-Ring; reinstall on trap cover.
Replace trap cover on trap; turn clockwise to tighten cover.
NOTICE: Tighten trap cover by hand only (no wrenches)!
Pump should prime now. Priming time will depend on vertical length of suction lift and horizontal length of suction piping.
If pump does not prime, make sure that all valves are open, suction pipe end
is under water, pump suction is below water level, and that there are no leaks
in suction pipe. See Troubleshooting Guide, Page 14.
Routine Maintenance
The only routine maintenance needed is inspection/cleaning of trap basket.
Debris or trash that collects in basket will choke off water flow through the
pump. Follow instructions below to clean trap:
1. Stop pump, close valves in suction and discharge, and release all pressure
from system before proceeding.
2. Unscrew trap lid (turn counterclockwise). If necessary, use a lever such as a
board or long screwdriver between lugs on trap cover.
10
3. Remove strainer basket and clean. Be sure all holes in basket are clear,
flush basket with water and replace in trap.
4. Clean and inspect “O” Ring; reinstall on trap cover.
5. Clean “O” Ring groove on trap body and replace lid. To help keep lid from
sticking, tighten hand tight only (no wrenches!).
6. Prime pump (see priming instructions, above).
Draining Pump
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Disconnect power
before working
on pump or motor.
1. Pump down water level below all inlets to the pool.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard, turn OFF power to
motor before draining pump.
2. To prevent pump from freezing, remove the trap cover and drain the tank
body through the drain plug (Key No. 15, Page 16). Clean pump thoroughly; replace trap cover.
NOTICE: Tighten trap cover by hand only (no wrenches)! Use a lever or
wrench only if necessary to remove cover! If pump is not anchored, use
caution to not break attached piping!
3. Use Sta-Rite U79-11 Lid Wrench to remove trap covers that have been
overtightened or have taken a set and cannot be removed by hand. Lugs
have been provided on the trap lid to use a lever or pry bar for loosening.
4. Cap inlet piping after draining to keep water out of the pipes.
5. Be sure motor is kept dry and covered.
Storage/Winterizing:
Explosion hazard. Purging the system with compressed air can
cause components to explode, with risk of severe injury or death to anyone
nearby. Use only a low pressure (below 5 PSI), high volume blower when air
purging the pump, filter, or piping.
Pool chemicals may give off corrosive fumes. Store chemicals
away from pump in a well ventilated area.
NOTICE: Allowing pump to freeze will damage pump and void warranty!
NOTICE: Do not use anti-freeze solutions (except propylene glycol) in your
pool/spa system. Propylene glycol is non-toxic and will not damage plastic
system components; other anti-freezes are highly toxic and may also damage
plastic components in the system.
Drain all water from pump and piping when expecting freezing temperatures
or when storing pump for a long time (see instructions below).
Keep motor dry and covered during storage.
To avoid condensation/corrosion problems, do not cover pump with plastic.
For outdoor/unprotected installations:
1. Gravity drain system as far as possible.
2. Protect areas which retain water with non-toxic propylene glycol antifreeze
(“RV antifreeze”).
3. Enclose entire system in a weatherproof enclosure.
4. To avoid condensation/corrosion damage, allow ventilation; do not wrap
system in plastic.
5. Use a 40% propylene glycol/60% water solution to protect pump to
-50 degrees F (-46 degrees C).
11
Startup For Winterized Equipment
1. Remove any temporary weather protection placed around system.
2. Follow filter manufacturer’s instructions for reactivation of the filter.
3. Inspect all electrical wiring for damage or deterioration over the shutdown
period. Have a qualified serviceman repair wiring as needed.
4. Inspect and tighten all watertight connections.
5. Open all valves in suction and return piping.
6. Remove any winterizing plugs in piping system.
7. Drain all antifreeze from system.
8. Close all drain valves and replace all drain plugs in piping system.
9. Prime pump according to instructions on Page 10.
PUMP SERVICE
Pump should only be serviced by qualified personnel.
For best results, use only genuine Sta-Rite factory parts.
Be sure to prime pump (Page 10) before starting.
Before removing trap cover:
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Disconnect power
before working
on pump or motor.
1. STOP PUMP before proceeding.
2. CLOSE GATE VALVES in suction and discharge pipes.
3. RELEASE ALL PRESSURE from pump and piping system.
4. NEVER tighten or loosen clamp while pump is operating.
To avoid dangerous or fatal electrical shock hazard, turn OFF power to
motor before working on pump or motor.
Aside from lubricating trap cover O-Ring, no lubrication or regular maintenance is needed beyond reasonable care and periodic cleaning.
If shaft seal is worn or damaged, repair as follows:
Pump Disassembly/Removing Old Seal
Disconnect power to pump motor.
Be sure gate valves on suction and return piping are closed before starting work.
Release all pressure by opening all vents before starting work.
1. Drain pump by removing drain plugs on bottom of pump body and trap
body.
2. After making sure that there is no pressure in trap body, remove cover
(unscrew by turning counterclockwise).
3. Remove clamp holding pump halves together.
4. Remove pump base mounting bolts, if used. Motor and seal plate assembly can now be pulled away from pump body.
5. Remove five screws and washers holding diffuser to seal plate.
6. Remove motor canopy.
Capacitor voltage can be dangerous. Before proceeding,
short the capacitor terminals together with a screwdriver that has an insulated handle.
12
Being careful not to touch capacitor terminals, loosen capacitor clamp
and move capacitor to one side.
7. Hold shaft with 7/16" open-end wrench on motor shaft flats.
NOTICE: On models with impeller screw, remove impeller screw (left
hand thread - turn clockwise) and gasket before removing impeller.
Inspect gasket for damage, cracks, etc. Replace if damaged.
8. Unscrew impeller from shaft (turn counterclockwise when facing it).
9. Remove four screws holding seal plate to motor.
10. Place seal plate face down on flat surface and tap out ceramic seat (Fig. 5).
11. Clean seal cavity in seal plate and clean motor shaft.
Pump Reassembly/Installing New Seal
Figure 5
1. Ceramic seat must be clean and free of dirt, grease, dust, etc. Wet outer
edge of O-Ring with small amount of liquid detergent; press ceramic seat
into seal plate cavity firmly and squarely with finger pressure (Fig. 6).
2. If ceramic seat will not locate properly, remove it, place face up on bench
and reclean cavity. Ceramic seat should now locate.
3. If seat still will not locate properly, place a cardboard washer over the
polished face and use a piece of 3/4" (19mm) standard pipe for pressing
purposes. NOTICE: Be sure not to scratch or mar polished surface or seal
will leak.
4. Remount seal plate on motor. Tighten bolts to 60-80 inch-lbs.
(69-92 kg/cm) torque.
5. Apply a small amount of liquid detergent to inside diameter of rotating
half of seal.
Figure 6
6. Slide rotating seal member, polished face last, over threaded shaft end and
shaft shoulder until rubber drive ring hits shaft shoulder.
NOTICE: Be sure not to nick or scratch polished seal face; seal will leak
if face is damaged.
7. Screw impeller onto shaft (clockwise); this will automatically locate seal in
seal plate.
NOTICE: On models with impeller screw: install impeller gasket and lock
screw (left-hand thread – turn counterclockwise).
8. Mount diffuser on seal plate; tighten screws to 10-14 inch-lbs.
(11.5-16.1 cent.-kg.) torque.
9. Assemble motor and seal plate to volute; be sure clamp is properly
seated. NOTICE: Clamp knob can be located in any position around volute; if it is moved after assembly, tighten knob while tapping around
clamp to assist sealing. Do not move clamp while pump is full of water.
Hazardous pressure. Release all pressure from pump and piping
system before working on pump or attempting to adjust or remove clamp.
Clamp may blow off of pump if adjusted under pressure.
10. Reinstall pump base mounting bolts (if used) and prime pump according
to instructions on Page 10.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
Read and understand safety and operating instructions in this manual
before doing any work on pump!
Only qualified personnel should electrically test pump motor!
FAILURE TO PUMP; REDUCED CAPACITY OR DISCHARGE PRESSURE
Suction leaks/lost prime:
Hazardous voltage.
Can shock, burn,
or cause death.
Disconnect power
before working
on pump or motor.
1. Pump must be primed; make sure that pump volute and trap are full of
water. See priming instructions, Page 10.
2. Make sure there are no leaks in suction piping.
3. Make sure suction pipe inlet is well below the water level to prevent
pump from sucking air.
4. If suction trap gasket is defective, replace it.
5. Suction lift of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) will reduce performance.
Suction lift of more than 25 feet (7.5 meters) will prevent pumping and
cause pump to lose prime. In either case, move pump closure (vertically)
to water source. Make sure suction pipe is large enough.
Clogged pipe/trap/impeller, worn impeller:
6. Make sure suction trap is not clogged; if it is, clean trap and strainer.
7. Make sure impeller is not clogged (follow steps 1 through 7 under
“Removing Old Seal”, Page 12; check impeller for clogging; follow steps
7 through 9 under “Installing New Seal”, Page 13, for reassembly).
8. Impeller and diffuser may be worn. If so, order replacement parts from
Repair Parts List, Pages 15 and 16.
9. Pump may be trying to push too high a column of water. If so, a “higher
head” pump is needed.
Electrical:
10. Pump may be running too slowly; check voltage at motor terminals and at
meter while pump is running. If low, see wiring instructions or consult
power company. Check for loose connections.
11. Pump may be too hot.
A. Check line voltage; if less than 90% or more than 110% of rated voltage consult a licensed electrician.
B. Increase ventilation.
C. Reduce ambient temperature.
D. Tighten any loose connections.
MECHANICAL TROUBLES AND NOISE
1. If suction and discharge piping are not adequately supported, pump
assembly will be strained. See “Installation”, Page 4.
2. Do not mount pump on a wooden platform! Securely mount on concrete
platform for quietest performance.
