    Jandy Pro Series VS FloPro 2HP Variable-Speed Pool Pump?

    I am thinking of getting this pump instead of the Jandy Flo Pro 1.0hp 2 speed with timer....the cost difference is only $200 since the controller that comes with the
    VS FloPro 2HP Variable-Speed Pool Pump will replace the need for the digital intermatic timer.....or am I missing something?

    It depends on your setup. The variable speed pump isn't setup to switch any external devices. So, if you have a SWG or heater you lose the ability to turn the SWG/heater off when the pump is off. If that isn't an issue for you then sure go for it.

    how has this pump worked out for you?

    maybe I am unlucky or maybe there are long term issues with these pumps. The first one failed within 4 weeks. Pump just stopped working. I got a brand new replacement via warranty and one of their warranty repair centers professionally install the 2nd - second pump failed after 6 weeks - same symptoms/issues. Jandy has no explanation on this and I am in process of getting a 3rd via warranty.
