We are in the process of bidding right now and we are down to three builders.
Builder H uses Hayward Tristar 2 speed pumps and cartridge filters we have had Hayward before and had
Builder J uses Jandy stealth pumps
Builder P uses Pentair
We like H' design and quality but are leery due to the price and then they use Hayward Tristar 2Spd pumps. He is willing to put Jandy in at additional cost but will only warranty Jandy for 1 year versus 3 for Hayward
Builder J uses Jandy and had a decent design although a little smaller but has good references and warranties the Jandy for 3 years
Builder P uses Pentair but is the most costly of all and not sure if I want to pay the premium for just the quality/name of a company since they all use subs to do the work.
I do not want to start a flame ware but what is the difference between Hayward and Jandy. Should I be requiring the builder use a different pump to save energy?
