First of all I wanted to thank all the helpful members here who so freely give of the information they have learned. I have been studying pumps and efficiency threads till I am blue in the face. Like many, I don't want to spend a penny more for electricity than I need to. I also don't want to fall victim to being "pool stored" and getting a 1.5hp pump when there is no way I'll need one. Found a dealer that doesn't want to sell me a big pump, doesn't want to persuade me into a sand filter and generally seems like a good place to deal with.
Anyway the question. I numerous pump threads the comment has been made that the ITI members here seem to choose Pentair pumps. Why is that? Reason I ask is above mentioned dealer went into a rant about Pentair being junk when I mentioned I wanted a Pentair pump and filter.
Again, thanks for everyones help here, maybe someday my posts will change from questions to helping others.
