So you notice that your water isn’t running like it normally does and you start to investigate what the problem is. After going down the list of things that could be causing the problem you finally end up at your Sta Rite Pump and realize that it is what is causing the problem. After you get done yelling obscenities at it you calm down and try to figure out if you are going to have to get a replacement or if you will be able to just replace one of the Sta Rite Pump Parts. Let’s take a look at what the different parts are and what they do.
Sta Rite Pump Parts
The motor is what causes the Impeller to spin inside of the pump. If your pump will not start, it is normally more cost effective to buy a new pump (unless your warranty covers it)
The Seal Plate keeps water from leaking from pump
•Seal Plate Gasket
The Impeller is constantly spinning to help water continue to flow efficiently
The Diffuser optimizes the flow of water through the pump
Allows you to control the pressure output of your Pump
As you can see just because your Sta Rite Pump is having issues does not mean that you need to automatically trade it in for a new one. If your pump is leaking you may want to check if your seal plate is cracked and is calling the leak. If your pump simply isn’t pumping water at the rate that it normally does you may want to look into getting the Impeller or Diffuser replaced.
