    Need new pump

    replacing a Jandy MHP2.0 that is currently running my spa jets.

    i have 3 of the same pumps on the system - Filter pump, water feature & the jets. should i move the filter pump to replace the jets pump and then get a new variable system for the filters? if so, will it work with my AquaLink RS8 (with just led lights)? if so, what would you recommend.

    thanks.

    Depending on what you pay for electricity and if the power company gives rebates for a VS, going with a VS may not be your most economical choice. You may have several other options:

    1. Swap out the filter motor to a two speed and move the single speed to the spa.
    2. Swap out the filter motor and impeller to a lower HP two speed and move the single speed to the spa.
    3. Purchase a new 2 speed pump.

    I'm in GA and no rebates as far as I know.

    Will the 2 speed pumps work on my controller or will I need to upgrade. I do have an open relay but was planning on adding landscape lighting to it.

    You would need a two speed relay
