    I have a a 1995 500DA with an A O Smith 120vac 3/4 hp fresh water pump. The motor is working fine, but the pump leaks. I think the AO Smith has the same specs as the Sta-Rite PWP-01. I'm having trouble finding a replacement

    My two freshwater pumps are 12v & my HVAC raw water pump is 240v. Sorry, that's a new one on me.

    3/4 hp is a pretty big motor to be moving water for faucets??????Is it possible that someone replaced the original with that just because they had it "laying around"??

    The only pump on our 500 that is not 12 volt is the AC pump. We have a March TE6P-MD.

    The wet ends are mostly interchangeable, just make sure the specs and the bolt pattern are the same.

    120/240v fresh water pumps are definitely the way to go on larger vessels. They out perform their 12/24v cousins in every way.
