Ordering a new pump motor tomorrow. The old one is making more and more noise.I have a 1 1/2 hp Sta-rite pump. I also run a caretaker system and am thinking of just replacing the pump with a EE unit.
Is there a big advantage to getting a 2 speed motor? I have searched and read threads and end up confused. I am running a timer and have the filter running two 4 hr shifts. Keeps the pool pretty clean. We are dropping a large pine tree in a few days which should really cut down on pool debris.
We are in a area with pretty reasonable electricity rates. around .08 per KWH.
With the caretaker system will a 2 speed with the lower rpm work?
Any recommendations on a place to order or to avoid?
