Perhaps I am really confused as to what constitutes a variable speed pump, but if The Hayward TriStar Pump is a variable speed pump then why are there versions of it on website price lists that list 2 Speeds and Single Speeds?
The literature mentions there are 6 programmable speeds on the Tri Star...so can someone clarify what this all means?
I am trying to purchase a pump that is powerful at 1.5 HP for backwashing and adding upgrades later on like (a spa or waterfalls, etc) so I only want to use a 3/4 HP speed right now for most of my pooling (14x28) but want to have the power when I need it.
Also, why is the TriStar's most expensive model only about $650 when the Pentair's most expensive VS VF model over $1200??.....What is the Pentair giving me for that extra money??
thanks for helping me clarify
