Since being informed by th Hayward tech. by the name of Derrick, that my 2 month old Ecostar VSP 3400 should not be run over 2000 rpm with 1 1/2" pipe leading into the 2" suction, I have decided I need to look for a VSP with 1 1/2" suction. Most I have seen have 2" suction. Does anyone know of a good VS pump with 1 1/2" suction and of course return fittings????? Please let me know.. TY in advance.
Personally I have tried to be satisfied with my 2 month old Hayward Ecostar VSP 3400 but now I have bearing noise and Derrick said it's because of the 1 1/2 plumbing.. Not to mention the constant air pocket that Hayward techs. say is not going away because of the plumbing mismatch.
Please, if you are fixing to get a new pump and have 1 1/2" plumbing beware of this problem, and I recommend to stick with like plumbing sizes.
