    Since the pump is separate from the filter, yes you can use the 1HP 2-speed pump with the 21" sand filter, and either keep the 1.5HP pump as a backup, or sell it.

    Re: Pump Filter Combination Question

    dom.....I was looking back at the forum. The one I asked about is the same Hayward Pump/Filter that you and singingpond picked up I think....

    I was just thinking that the 2-speed pump was a nice upgrade....and inexpensive too...

    thanks for responding

    Yes, a 2 speed pump is a very nice upgrade. A 2 speed pump uses 1/4 of the electricity on low as it does on high.

    Just missed it. The Hayward 21" Filter/Pump combo is back up to $433.00

    If you snooze (or are indecisive) you lose!

    Re: Pump Filter Combination Question

    I am actually quite tempted to buy the 1 hp 2-speed pump you mention. I had previously looked a bit at getting a compatible 2-speed motor to swap into the pump that comes with the 21" filter setup (was thinking of doing this a year or two down the road). The best price I found so far on a 2-speed motor was about $100 more than the current cost of that complete 2-speed pump...! Definitely tempting.

    I was amazed how long the pump/filter combo stayed at the reduced price; I pictured them (Amazon) having a large surplus of these units. I wonder how many they moved out the door during the past several weeks!

    Singingpond....I think the two speed pump is a great idea at a great price. You can always hold on the the one speed pump for a backup or sell it for a few bucks. I'll keep on the lookout so I don't miss out again..

    Exactly. Since we can't swim we might as well talk about pumps!

    OK, a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I did buy the 2-speed pump on Amazon this morning. Just looked like too good a deal at that price (~$132)!

    Good luck with your survey of prices and equipment through the coming cold months! When I look back, I had actually been keeping an eye on pump and filter prices and configurations for a while, over the past two years or so -- good deals definitely do seem to come along if you are patient.

    No embarrassment. It's a smart, informed purchase. The two speed pump is the right move for many reasons. And you got a great deal. I'll keep looking.....
