I keep reading and hearing about variable speed motors. I have a question concerning this. I am not sure what I have, as I am a new pool owner, and really do not know what I have. I know I have a pump for my waterfalls/fountain, I have a pump to circulate my pool, and a booster pump for my cleaner. If I ever need to replace the pump/motor, I keep reading a variable speed will help. What exactly does it do to help? I understand a variable speed can vary its speed, but how would you set it up to do so and what would the circumstances be? Can any motor be replaced with the variable speed? Do you need special controls to get it to actually use the variable speeds? Thanks all.
