Hello, my electric company is offering $600 rebate to pool owners who change their single speed pumps to certain variable speed pumps. Seems like a no-brainer. I've seen the Pentair Variable speed pump for under $900 online. My pool guy has quoted me $1500 for the pump and installation. Won't install the new pump unless I get it from him.
My question is how difficult is it for an average dyi'er to change out this pump. It seems like I'd be able to use the same pipes. My current pump is connected to an Intermatic timer electrical panel, and I have a booster pump for the cleaner and a SWG. I'm hoping I may even be able to use the same electrical connection.
Any comments/recommendations will be appreciated! Thanks and happy new year!
