I am looking at getting a two speed pump for the electricity savings. Currently I have an older 1hp hayward superpump, sticker says it uses 7.5a. I recently installed a Aqua rite chlorinator.
I am concerned if the 1hp 2 speed pump will give enough flow to operate the SWG? My other option is to buy a more economical motor replacement which is rated at 6.2. Some savings but not as much as the two speed motor.
I also use a kreepy krauly for cleaning, only once a week, this would need to run on the high speed for several hours? Correct
2 speed pump is 3.6 @ 12 hours = 43.2
Energy efficient pump 6.2 @ 8 =49.6
Current pump 7.5 @ 8= 60
2 speed pump would require new timer at $200 P1353
Not sure how much electricity is in my area, AL. But not as high as CA.
Is the two speed pump worth it? Will I be able to use the SWG.
If I have to run the 2 speed pump on high the amp are 8.5 so not worth it to spend $500.
