Hey all.....im thinking about changing pumps this year from a 2hp superpump to a Hayward VS superpump.
I have the VS pump in hand.
I have some concerns about the plumbing.
I currently am running a 2hp superpump with 2" plumbing all around. The VS pump is only a 1.5hp with 1.5" threads on the housing. Reducing the plumbing is no big deal but im wondering what the effect of the smaller pump with the big plumbing is going to do to my flow back into the pool. As it is when i run the waterfall my jets dont get the best pressure and i usually turn the stairs off for optimal water movement.
So i guess my question is.......does the new VS have the same output as my old 2.0hp pump or will i be disappointed with how the pool runs.
I dont want to do all this work only to have the pool run worse all to save some money on my electric.
Would any of you service techs do this for your customers?
