I currently have a 3/4 hp whisperflo. It started to make noise due to the bearings, so I called home warranty to repair it since I just bought the house couple months ago. They came with a 2 hp motor and convinced me it would work since my impellers are for the smaller motor. Good thing is it would not fit in the space so they are bringing a smaller motor on Monday.
Is going with a larger motor a good idea? Will it use more power even with the smaller impeller? I am trying to confirm the size of the smaller motor, but really I just want the same size since everything works (including the spa). I definitely don't want to use more power than I need to.
