I'm about to change pumps or motors. I have a 2 hp superpump II that's running fine but want to make it more efficient. We've had the house for 7 years with never a problem with the pump/motor. The pump is 12 years old and runs year round in Fla. I'm about to put a new 2 speed motor in it to run it on low most of the time and save some $ on operation. I got to thinking about the age of the whole unit and am now wondering if perhaps I should just go with a total new pump. Do the wet ends tend to hold up for a long time on superpump II/s? switching out the motor would be the easiest, least expensive route, but I'd hate to see the wet end go in a year or so. I'm handy, so any rebuilding parts to install isn't a big deal if that will do.
Thanks for your input.
