    New pump

    We need to buy a new pump. Our current pump is a Jacuzzi Magnum Force with an AO smith motor, 1 hp.

    I notice the Jacuzzi Magnum Force is still available. It would be nice to get that since then we won't have to change any piping, etc.

    But is there a better choice? Where we wouldn't have to adjust too much piping?

    Thanks

    If you can get one with 2 speeds, that might be a nice upgrade without changing fittings. Jacuzzi Bros. Jacuzzi Magnum Force Dual Speed 1 HP - 94027210 - INYOPools.com
    Running at low speed even for twice as long will save you $$ on electricity.

    Hard to tell if your pump is over or undersized without more details about your pool. Please add the details of your pool to your signature. Edit Signature

    I'll add them later, I have lot to do today. So why are Jacuzzi pumps still being sold? I thought Jacuzzi went out of business? We had to replace our Jacuzzi sand filter 2 years ago.

    Re: New pump

    Well I still haven't added my info. Really. I should have it memorize...but we ended up taking the pump apart, and fixing part of it, so we just got a new motor.

    So that should be good for a bit.

    Thanks anyway. I do have a question about bleach... I will post in another section.

    Thanks,
    Dayna
