I have been running this pump for close to 6 years http://www.amazon.com/Pentair-Sta-Ri.../dp/B001HNFCVG
Had an issue with it running dry last year because of the leaves clogging up the 2 skimmers so I had to have the motor rebuilt. It runs now but my electric bills are crazy when the pool is running so I wanted to get some recommendations on something more energy efficient. When we got it we were told that it was a very efficient pump but my electric bills over the years would beg to differ I would like to get something that I didn't have to re-plumb the pipes ideally. I have a DE filter and run a heater as well for our 24K gallon pool.
I'm thinking one of the newer variable speed models so I thought I would ask the experts. Thanks for any advice
