I noticed while closing the pool last fall, that I had a small leaking coming from my pump. I closed as normal, and figure I would deal with it this spring. The current pump came with the pool when we bought it 3 yrs ago. I have no idea how old it is, but it cost a good amount of money to run all summer. I feel as if it is a great time to replace with a much more efficient model.
My pool is about 35,000 gal in ground with 2" plumbing. I have a hayward 24" sand filter, and a 220,000 NG heater. I have no other features at all with the pool. I am beating my brain trying to figure out what type of pump will be the best for me. I know I don't want a single speed, but the options for variable speed and 2 speed pumps are giving me a head ache. I'm leaning heavily toward a Pentair Intelliflow, but every time I research others, I get so frustrated and confused. Any recommendations you could make as to VS or 2 speed, and brands that people have had good luck with, would be great. Thanks for any help!
