I am in need of replacing my pump on my 20x40 IG and my pool dealer is recommending this new pump from Sta-Rite. It is computer controlled at 4 different speeds. They say that you can run it at the lowest speed (for a longer time than you would normally run your pump) and that it will run at an average of 30% less cost per year.
It is supposed "whisper quiet". And the benefit of running for a longer period of time is that your pool water is being filtered for a longer period of time instead of sitting stagnant.
It all sounds great except the price. Pool dealer says his cost on it is around $1200 but pump will pay back in energy savings in about 3 to 4 years
Just curious if anyone here has any experience with this.
