A few weeks ago, my 10+ year old pump started acting up and finally gave up and died. After doing what I could to see if it was anything I could repair and calling (much to my disdain) a local "pool guy" to come out and see, he confirmed that it was dead. I would like to get a Variable speed pump and after much research, decided on a Pentair Intelliflo 011018. As the warranty involves having a licensed pool guy install, my guy was asked for advice and he found me a Pentair 011017 which has the additional SVRS feature. Of course, I've also been seeing the feedback on the 011055 with the display that would not have to be upside down in our installation. I had finally made my mind up (011018, but drool over the 01055 because it's not available on-line) and someone said - "I think you are being oversold - why would you want to install a 3HP pump, when you are replacing a 1.5HP pump". So now I doubt all my research and want to ask everyone here....what's your advice?
