I am considering upgrading my single speed pool pump to a variable speed pump. I am considering either the Pentair 011018 Intelliflo or the Jandy JEP 2.0 e pump. My installer suggests the Jandy because he can provide with a 3 year warranty vs. a 1 year warranty on the Pentair.
My concern is that I have heard motor replacement on a variable speed pump is so expensive it would make sense to replace the whole unit if the motor fails. Does anyone have any experience in this area?
