I have a 23,000 gallon pool with a 10 plus year old PACFAB Challenger 2.0 HP pump. I need to replace it. I was looking at a 1.5 HP WhisperPro. When I asked their service department, a local pool company said that pump cost $599.99 plus $200.00 for installation and setup up. Then I had the same company come out and get the specs for my pool. They recommended the intelliflo. They said that pump and installation would cost $1499, $1299 for the pump. I then told them that I like to buy local whenever I could, but I just received a coupon for 20% anything at Leslie's. I asked if they could match that. They said yes. Question is, is a Intelliflo worth $500? I pay $.10 Kwh, but has been rising recently. The tech said that the Intelliflo motor is more reliable than the WhisperPro, is this true. Anyways, I just moved into the house and plan to be their for many years. Given those details would the Intelliflo ever make sense?
