Good Morning. Our Jacuzzi Magnum Force 1.5 HP finally gave up the ghost. I went to two different pool stores yesterday, came home and read a lot of information online and I am now more confused than ever!
First store recommended the Pentair Superflo VS, I think the model is PEN340001 (that's what was on the slip of paper they gave me) on sale for $819.00, $350. Rebate but $250. to install and a two week wait.... They also sell the Hayward but "we don't recommend it". Second store recommends Hayward Super Pump VS model SP2602VS $849.00, same rebate and install price, one weeks wait. My husband is perfectly capable of doing the install but the electric company will not give rebate unless installed by "professional". After looking on Amazon I can buy either of these pumps with a 2 day delivery much cheaper, or even the Pentair Intelliflo or the 2 speed Whisperflo. Bottom line, I don't understand all the flow chart information and technical stuff. We have 1.5" PVC piping into and out of the old pump, I know since I need a new pump going energy efficient is the way to go. But which way?? I'd appreciate any advice from your experience that you can give. My husband is old school and feels the more bells and whistles, the more things to break! Thank you!!
