Well, it's just about time to replace my squeaky pump motor. I plan on replacing it with a 2-speed, keeping the same 1.5 SFHP so I can run the in-floor cleaner properly on high speed. I need some help buying the right thing!
Looks like I can get a WhisperFlo for about $650, a TriStar for $600, and Stealth is comparable as well. If I opt to replace just the motor, I can do that for ~1/3 the price. It looks like the AO Smith USQ 1152 is the appropriate motor; can someone confirm that? It's SFHP is 1.6, which seems close enough.
My current timer is an Intermatic for a single speed pump. Will I need to replace that, or is there a way to just switch to high speed manually when the pool needs cleaning?
