I have been a lurker for sometime. I am currently in the middle of a OB/DIY build. I am indebted to this forum and another forum for the learned knowledge to build a pool. I am at the point that I will need to purchase a pump(s) and would like some advice.
All plumbing is 2" except Polaris. Main drain and 2 skimmers each home run to pad. 6-7 returns split into 2 home runs. No spa. Water feature is 2 fountains with spillover into pool and 1 bubbler in sunshelf. For water feature I plumbed wall drains to pad with 1 run to fountain and 1 run to bubbler.
Option 1: (1) VS3050 used for pool and water feature with valving (could add extra pump later)
Option 2: (1) VS3050 for pool, 1hp single speed for water feature
Option 3: (1) 2 speed for pool, VS for water feature
I am in Texas so electricity is about .11/kwh
Question: Opinions? Comment?
Sorry for the long post. And thanks in advance.
