My 10 year old SHPM2.0 Stealth pump is leaking and the motor is rattling so I shut it down and researching replacements. I have researched this and suffering from "TMI". I have narrowed it down to replacing with the same or a Hayward Super II SP3015X20AZ single speed*. In a nutshell my questions are as follows:
1. I apparently need a "high head" pump like my current one. I have not calculated Total Head but do have in ground cleaning long pipe runs, 2 skimmers, and SPA. Does this Hayward qualify?
2. Current pump is 2HP Uprated total 2.2 HP. Hayward is Maxrated 2HP total
3. Will this work with my fully automated Jandy Aqualink system? Will any programming be required or does it just send an on/off signal to the pump leads?
*Cost is an issue as we will sell this house in a year, plus the Hayward is a smaller form factor that will correct a bad original install where the pump blocks the filter drain.
Appreciate your advice
