My pump is leaking and I am assuming that it is original to the house. I kind of doubt the motor is original, but it looks like it is getting some age on it.
A couple of pics of the current install.
Basically, all I use my pump for is skimming, filtering and when cold, keep it from freezing.
I am thinking I will add a Stenner pump to my setup in the near future, I think that is a better option for me vs a SWG.
So my thought is to go with this pump:
Pentair SuperFlo VS Pump 342001 | Pentair 342001
Is it over kill? I think it is to some degree, but it is only $100 more then a two speed and gives me the ability to do some fine tuning on skimming, save some dollars on running for freeze protection, and right at this moment with all the tree stuff falling, I would really like to be able to run 7x24 at a low speed to keep the pool cleaner.
Thoughts, does it make sense? Risk with overpower plumbing or the filter?
Thank you for taking a look.
