    Hey Buck You ought have started a new thread for this in the "equipment" area A lot of folks who have the pump knowledge might not see it in your pool build post.


    Let me see if I can get one of the MODs to separate this and start up a new thread for you in the right area

    [edit]THAT WAS QUICK!!!! Thanks Dave or Jason [/edit]

    Unless he has a spa and/or water feature, he could really go with as small a pump as possible. A two speed or variable speed is also an option to save money on energy costs. It really depends on his budget.

    Thanks for the move. He went with a one horse single speed. Be plans on moving in a year and our electric rate is around 12.5. Thanks for help
