Question about Sta Rite Ds3hf 1.50 Hp Self Priming Irrigation Pump

1 Answer

This pump is at least 18 to 20 years old. (Flotec) Type B, Motor Model C48K2EC15 HP 1 RPM 3450. It is leaking in several places, mostly at the top and the water pressure is not very strong. Is it a gasket? (water seal?) Now what. Do I follow the direction on replacing a gasket?

Where can a find a new pump CHEAP? Current pump is Model C48L2P104 (18 years old). Serial 1B93. Voltage 230 HP 1.5 RPM 3450/1725 Amps 9.2/2.5 Frame 48Y Dura-glas H/L


A new motor and pump parts (if needed) would be cheaper than a whole new pump. Your motor is part number UQS1152R or if you just want a single, high speed motor you could use USQ1152 to replace it. You will likely need a seal and seal insert as well; part number 100 (it may have letters in front like AS100, PS100, etc) and J3-2. A whole new pump you should shop for part #P2RA5YF-182L.

For a quote on the parts from us you can contact us using thru our website at www.arrowpools.net. Otherwise, google those numbers to locate your best deal.

Can you put a bigger Hp and a smalll plully onit


There are quite a few variations of motor and pulley combinations. You can change the motor and pulley based on your needs, however do not over-clock the recommended rpm or the pump. Check the specifications of the pump to determine the max rpm . Usually the pulley on the motor will depend on the rpm of the motor. Check the rpm of the present motor to determing the rpm of the pump with current set-up, and compare to the motor you are considering. Motor rpm vary from around 850 to 3450 so pulley size is quite important. Good holidays

I need a motor for flotec shallow well pump unit #FP7100-08.The motor #S48D02AO3.WHERE CAN I FIND ONE AND HOW MUCH.Thank you Greg


Save yourself time and effort, replace the entire unit. I speak as a guy who has lived with a well for more than 35 years.

If you put a new motor on a old pump what do you have? A new $300.00 motor on a $worthless old pump. Spend the $350.00 and replace it.

I got 1 year old flotec 3/4 hp pump and it take


I have had the same problem there are a few things that can cause it to take longer to shut off, if you are running a sand point well that's usually a sign that the sand point is clogging up,if you have a sistern or a dug well check the screen on the end of the suction pipe,another possible cause is the water level has dropped low enough the pump is having to work harder to pull the water up, you should also check your pressure tank and the points for the pump if the points are sticking the pump will keep running till it builds enough pressure to trip them.Check for leaks in the suction line, if it is sucking air that would cause it to run longer to.I hope these suggestions will help fix the problem. Have a great weekend
