I have an inground gunite pool approx 30x16 and avg 4.5 feet deep. I have a large 6 jet spa attached w/heater of course. I also have 2 water features and a very large 4 cartridge filter (Hayward SwimClear 5025). 2 in pipe in/out of pump and 4 drains/2 skimmers in the pool.
I have 2 questions:
I have a 3 HP pump (Jandy Stealth JHP 3.0) that is leaking between the body and motor. I am sure this is a gasket but the pump is almost 7 years old. Is it worth fixing? I don't mind fixing but by the time I have someone replace the seals I am looking at $100-$150 that may be better spent towards a new pump??
If I replace, is 3hp overkill or should I go with a smaller or two speed or variable speed? Recommendations?
