looking for specific pump recommendation. The pool specs are: 13000 gallon free form in ground with salt water generator no water features and no spa. I probably will be going solar in the next couple years. We are located in tampa fl with electric rates not near as bad as the west coast.
Our builder recommends 2" sch 40 pvc throughout. For equipment: Sta rite vs3050 variable speed pump, Starite 150 sq ft cartridge filter and ic 40 salt water generator.
The builder will allow me to purchase the equipment independent of his recommendations.
My question is on the pump, Is this pump overkill? If no, is this specific pump the latest in technology for a $1000 pump, am I better off with a 3/4 or 1hp two speed which is less expensive. One of my main concerns is noise levels since the pump will be fairly close to the pool.
