So it looks to me that all three variable speed pumps are pretty similar (in efficiency) . (Hayward, Pentair, Jandy)
Am I reading the tables and analysis correctly. (post moved, referring to v1.3 of Pump Cost Comparison spreadsheet)
Everyone seems to rave about the Pentair Intelliflo. But it looks like one could get a Hayward or Jandy with a separate control box that would have about the same performance.
Any comments why to get the Pentair, or Hayward, or Jandy?
I have 28,000 gallon pool, 1 HP single speed pump, 1.5" piping, 48 square foot Leslies/Hayward DE filter.
Nothing else besides the pool, no spa, no solar. And my incremental electrical rate in tier 3 is about $0.25/kwh.
