I recently purchased a home built in the late sixties which came with an existing pool that has a few decades on it at least. The plumbing seems to be old as well. I only have two jets, an overflow whose plumbing is capped because it has a leak, and a drain in the pool. I currently use a skimmer that works on the Venturi effect and uses a jet to skim.
My current pump is leaking water through one of the seals and I don't believe I will be able to find parts for it as it was built in China.
As such, I am considering a replacement pump. I was looking at the variable speed pumps but it seems to me that I would have to run them at their lowest setting so I'm not sure I would be using their variable function all that much, if at all. These pumps seem to be designed for a pools that are larger than my 11k pool.
I plan on a significant remodel of the pool in the future but not before the end of this season at least. My county requires high efficiency pumps so I want to make sure I purchase a pump that will not have to be replaced later if I remodel the pool.
It seems to me a high efficiency .5 HP pump would be the best route but haven't been able to find one yet. Please let me know your thoughts.
