    Question Please Recommed a Pump

    Hello,

    Our pool pump finally died this year. The pump was a Hayward SP2607X10 Super Pump High Performance 1HP Pool Pump, 115V/230V.

    Here's the thing, we plan on selling this house within the next 2 years and don't want to sink a lot of money into the pool. Would my best (cheapest) option be to go with the same pump or a pentair maybe? Can i get a 2 speed pump from a different manufacturer for around the same price ($300 - $400) as the one i have?

    Looking for options.

    Thanks for any input you can give.

    Why not get the same pump in a 2 speed? Super Pump | Pumps | In Ground Pool Pumps - Hayward Pool Products. Or just replace the motor with 2 sp motor and leave the pump in place.

    The wet side hardly has issues. Replace the motor and shaft seal and you're good to go. Cheaper and easier than replacing the whole pump when there is no need to.

    Re: Please Recommed a Pump

    Well when we bought the house there was a crack in the pump near the suction line intake running up towards the cover. It looks like someone tried to repair it and its been holding, but i figured if the motor went i would just replace the whole thing.

    Any feedback on this vs. the Hayward SP2607X10?

    Seems to be a little cheaper in price

    The Pentair Superflo is a great pump and is available in 2 sp.

    WaterWay 1.25HP Pump - cheap, easier to install and good quality product.
