I have a 11,000 gal pool, currently with a Hayward Super Pump 1.0 HP and 1.5 SF (about 8 yrs old).
It has 2" Piping an a Hayward C1750 Cartridge Filter currently running about 10 psi at the cartridge filter.
Also has a Hayward Navigator, and a Small Rock Waterfall
I am in the process of converting to Salt water with a Compupool CPSC 36 which is not installed yet.
and looking to upgrade the pump. Definitely thinking of a two speed pump energy efficient pump. I think I need two speed so I can run the salt cell long enough without filtering the pool
I was thinking of a 3/4 Pentair WFDS-3, however that pump is only 115v and they recommend 12 gauge wire for a 100' run, which I only have 14 gauge wire there now.
So I started looking at the 230 volt models and am thinking of the WFDS-4 SFHP 1.65 or the
Or a Pentair SuperFlo (SF-N2-1A) SFHP = 1.25. These two pumps have almost identical curves. and the SuperFlo is about $200 less.
So what should I do? SuperFlo, WhisperFlo WFDS-3, WFDS-4 Or something else (it does not have to be pentair)
Also, does anyone know why the WhisperFlo is $200 more than the SuperFlo (they look the same to me)?
