Currently using a Jandy MHPM 1.5, but the bearings on the motor are shot and I am trying to decide which motor and/or pump to install in it's place. My electric costs vary about 17-20 cents / kwh. I have a Jandy AquaLink RS with outdated firmware. Planning to install iAqualink anyhow, which will have updated firmware to handle vs speed pumps. It's an indoor pool so pump runs year round.
Pool has 2 skimmers and 2 floor drains, as well as a slide. No waterfall or spa.
- Does variable speed make sense in this situation?
- Does anyone have experience with this particular model pump and know which motors will fit as a replacement?
- Are there any other factors that need to be considered?
