    Single speed pump vs 2 speed pump

    I just recently bought a house with my first pool. 20,000 gallons inground liner pool. Currently I have a single speed Pac Fab pump, is it worth the cost of having a 2 speed pump installed for efficiency purposes. Thanks in advance.

    Yes. You'll save greatly on your electric bill. I recently replaced my pump with: : Hayward SP3400VSP EcoStar VS Variable-Speed Pool Pump Energy Star Certified : Swimming Pool Water Pumps : Patio, Lawn Garden

    Works great and has plenty of power. It actually has more than 2 speeds.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    It really depends on your electric costs per kW.

    Cheapest option would be to put a 2-speed motor on your existing pump. This would give you most of the energy savings of a VS pump (mentioned above) without the high upfront cost. There are cheaper VS pumps that could be a good option depending on your flow requirements.

    Please add your pool details to your signature as described HERE as it will help us help you.
