My pump died. It was pretty old, the casing on the back has rusted out, it was LOUD etc. We tried fixing it, cleaned, lubed, replaced some seals. I got another few hours out of it, but in the end, the lack of maintenance from the previous owners and the pump not being used for over a year was too much. The wet end seems to be good
Now comes replacement.
It's a Hayward Super Pump, model #c48j2n131b1. The motor (SPX1605Z1M) goes for 150 and change on Amazon. Doesn't seem too bad, but should I consider any other options? Multi speed? Higher efficiency? Are they even available?
