    1HP Hayward Superpump

    Looking to upgrade to the 2 speed super pump. I have the EC-65 filter and the poly base that the pump mounts to. I want to stay with the super pump so it can mount to the base. I also have a SWG, will it make the flow switch on low speed? Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks

    The SWG will usually work on low speed, but it depends on many details of your plumbing and can't be guaranteed until you try it.

    My current pump has similar flow rate characteristics as the 1 HP Superpump and it generates fine on low speed so you should be ok as well unless you have very high head loss plumbing.
