I have an 8yr old pool with attached spa 9-10K gallons total
I need a replacement pump. Original pump is a single speed Sta-rite dura-glass II w/ 2hp ao smith engine.
I would like a variable speed Hayward ecostar or Pentair Intelliflo or possibly Jandy epump.
At the very least, if the variables provide not suitable, then a 2 speed either probably Jandy stealth or Pentair whisperflo
I have an Air switch that controls the jets, air, jets plus air to spa.
This runs to an Intermatic PB313E digital control – this control is the timer for on/off of the pump as well as providing the air switch for spa.
It seems the variable speeds require new, fancy electronics that cost what they do or much more to enable them to do the same thing my $35 (seems current replacement cost for the intermatic) does.
With the variables
are there any that will work with what I have (and say, not get stuck in one speed if it does)
is there a way to use the built in controller (the one attached to the back of the motors) and just a wired input from a spa-side switch that will work with the air tank so I can tell the pump on, on plus air, air only??
If not, what is the minimum replacement that will work with it and possibly an air switch of most seem to be wired or wireless spa side remotes – what would I need
