My pumps about 12 years old. Yep it's been around for a while. It's a 2hp pentair, not sure of the exact model. A couple of days ago it's started shutting off and turning back on by itself. It's overheating. I tried the easy fixes, but I'm thinking it's probably time replace the whole thing or at the least, replace the motor.
From what I've read a 22000 pool , with 1.5 pipes, and a estimated 70 ft of head pressure most of the 1.5 hp motors would make a good replacements. The sand filter is huge so I'm thinking I could go bigger, but with the smaller pipes it's probably a waste.
Has anyone found a pump that stand out above the rest? I was looking on Amazon and it seems like the most popular ones right now are the single speed pumps, which is what I have now. I was hoping there was a general consensus on the best overall value. Are the two speed and variable speed pumps worth the extra cash?
The EcoPumps are variable speed and have a three year warranty, but are they any better than Hayward or Pentair?
I'm just looking for suggestions I guess.
