I found this pump and hot tub heater on craigslist last night. I am going near this area today and for $20... if it would work for us I'm going to pick it up.
It is actually 110v, 3/4 hp, 3400 rpm. He just left a message with details.
I know this is a hot tub heater, but could it possibly be used to heat the pool some? Our pool is cold!
I also know I'd need a sand filter to go with it. Dad has one, I might revisit that if it's not too huge. It holds 200# of sand he said.
Or I'll keep my eye out for a used sand filter on CL. There is one with a pump right now for $75 but if I can get a $10 pump today that works... I'm so doing that instead.
edit: pump is actually 3450 rpm. The guy says it might not work for a sand filter. I have to leave in about an hour to go get kids from camp and will be stopping by to see the pump on the way back. TIA for any advice.
