Looking to get a replacement impeller, seal, etc for my .5 horsepower Northstar.
This is an actual .5 HP fullrated model of the pump but it seems to be discontinued. I cant find the seal/impeller kit anywhere. The smallest I can find is for the .75 HP version.
The service factor on mine is 1.85, so technically its .5HP * 1.85, correct?
Could I get away with using the .75 HP parts?
Ive noted a drop in psi when the filter is clean (normally around 12 or so, now at 8) so Im preparing for the worst (new seal, impeller, etc). I know using the .75 HP parts might even get me more flow, but I assume at the cost of energy usage. If I can get the actual .5 HP parts anywhere that would be preferable, but am interested to know if I can use the .75 HP parts in their place.
