Did you install your pool pump? Was it a big job?
I need to replace my noisy old single speed. I am thinking about ordering online and installing a Pentair Intelliflo.
I have a great plumber friend who can help plumb the lines. I can figure out the electrical (or have my electrician do it for $75). It's already wired for 220.
The local pool guy quoted a marked up price for the pump, it is marked up by 50% over the internet price, plus his installation fee of $250.
So it is a $1000 pump that he would charge me $1500 for. I wouldn't mind just paying the install fee, but the markup is alot.
It seems to me that it is "only" plumbing two lines and connecting the electrical wiring.
Is it that big of a DIY job if you are handy?
