    Red face New pump recommendation

    My Hayward pump is over 10 years old and is making a horrendous noise. I am assuming after a decade of diligent duty in the humid Tampa weather, it's time to give up the ghost.

    It is a 1hp unit, servicing a 20,000 gallon pool and 4 person hot tub. What is a good replacement pump, with a strong focus on energy efficiency and reliability?
    20,000 gal chlorine DE filter (crushed shells?)
    IG pool, Older Jandy PDA remote control system
    Not sure if it's plaster/pebble, or fiberglass construction
    Pump and filter info coming; It has a gas heated spa

    I would go with a 1 HP or 1.5 HP and go with either a 2-speed pump or a variable speed (VS) pump. The 2-speed would allow you to run at a lower RPM and save electricity. The VS pump would allow you to have a lot more flexibility on pump speeds and therefore flow rates and might be very nice considering you have a spa in the pool. You could even go with a 1.5 HP VS pump and achieve great energy savings while still allowing you to bump the speed/flow higher when you want lots of jet flow in the spa area.

    Thanks JV. Is there a brand to look for?
