I sold my trusty SuperPump today, decided to make the leap to a VS pump this year to reduce the electricity bills.
I've found a local repair shop selling what appears to be warranty returns that have been refurbished and come with warranties.
They currently have a 1 year old refurbished Pentair 342000 for $450, or a Hayward 3400vsp for $499. Keep in mind prices are in CDN$ so they may seem high to many of you, but take about 30% off for comparison purposes.
I've done a bunch of reading online about both and am kind of torn. Both seem very similar. Leaning towards the Pentair simply for the $50 cost savings, but thought I'd ask for thoughts from the brains here before comitting either way.
Pool is not open yet (still a month away at earliest up here) but I'm looking to make a decision inside a few days - this guy seems to move product pretty fast and I already missed out on one I had my eyes on, the 110V compatible version of the Pentair...all he has left is 220v models which complicates things as I need to run a new line to the equipment area, but it is what it is....
