    how do you like that Ecotec VS motor?

    A little off topic, how do you like that Ecotec VS motor? I am looking to replace my motor and was going to go with the Pentair, until this one popped up on on of the sites I was looking at and really caught my eye. The price seems right as does the plug and play right into my old pump setup, I was just looking for reviews before I put down that kind of money. TIA

    The ECOTECH EZ is new and there hasn't really been any feedback about it yet. They do not appear to use a permanent magnet motor, so they are not going to be quite as efficient as the IntelliFlo, but otherwise they look reasonably good based on their literature.

    Thanks Jason, wasn't sure about that permanent magnet motor part, though I saw something on it, but then I got directed away and forgot about it. I was just looking for ease of installation, because to replace my setup now is going to be a major undertaking, just because of the way it was originally set up. But any better efficiency should be better than what I have now, I'll continue researching, Actually just looked it up again, it does have a permanent magnet motor. Thanks Again

    Ah, you are correct, they do have a permanent magnet motor.

    Did you purchase one and if so, how did it work for you?

    Motorman,
    I elected not to purchase one, simply because there was a recall on them and I couldn't find any info as to whether all the pumps had be recalled, repaired or anything. I also couldn't find an updated part number stating if the recalled fix had been done on the newer ones.I didn't feel comfortable ordering one and not knowing if I was getting one from someone's stock that they couldn't get rid of or what. I am currently saving up for an Intelliflo VS pump.
