    Help with motor replacement and 2 speed upgrade

    My Waterway CHAMPS 115 pump motor after nine years is about on it last leg. Noise, whine....you know the drill. Looks like the replacement motor is the standard B2853, and is an easy cheap fix with a gokit. I would LIKE to go to a 2 speed motor. My timer is Intermatic PF1102MF digital. Both pump and Salt Generator run 220v on the same switch. Question...is there a direct replacement, 2 speed motor, and if so, can I use my existing timer?
    As always, thanks so much in advance for all the expert assistance!! Looking forward to all responses!

    Samiguy, which pump did you use? My pump was submerged in a flood 2 years ago. It's noisy, and won't hot start anymore.

    I ended up getting a whole pump...price was about the same. I got the Waterway Champs 215. Put it in yesterday and really like the solution! Very quiet and now saving a ton on energy cost.

    Great follow up! I would like to hear the difference you see in the power bill with this.
