Ques for the pump gurus:
I have determined that the whisperflo WFDS-24 115V 1HP pump is perfect for my older pool application. It fits my older exisiting 1.5HP pump curve quite well. I'm not really interested in spending another $450 on an Intelliflo VS pump since my needs are minimum. (ie. no solor or fancy water features.) As well, I'm a little leary of the reliability of these newer electronic pumps. The problem I have is that I don't think my existing electrical run can support this pump's current requirements. I think my existing run is ~75ft of 3 wire 12g that is used for my current 220V pump and 115v booster pump.
I would assume I would need 10g or bigger for the WFDS-24 pump, no?
Re-doing the electrical run is not really an option, so is there some other DS pump out there that is as efficient as this whisperflo with a similar pump curve, but runs on 220V?
Could I potentially use the WFDS-26 with the WFDS-24's impeller? Anybody tried that?
