I have a separate filter pump for my in ground, small spa that's a Sta-Rite 2hp. I was going to either have it replaced or rebuilt because it's noisey and seems to be on the way out.
I was under the impression rebuilding a small pump like this was relatively inexpensive, around $150 or so dollars. A pool technician was telling me a rebuild is around $400, with a new one around $800.
For a single speed, 2hp pump, doesn't that seem a bit high?
Looking around the web, I'm seeing brand new complete pumps for around $200-$300 from Hayward and Pentair. I actually think I want to step down to 1 1/2hp per the tech's recommendation.
It looks like a straightforward job and I may just do it myself. I just want to make sure I'm seeing the whole picture.
When I see a new pump for $300, I figured I'd pay a guy a $100 for the install and I'd be out the door for $400.
Am I being unreasonable?
