I've got solar heater panels for the pool and a 1hp pump. There is also a controller for the panels that the previous owner disconnected (not sure why). Anyway.... if I'm pretty handy and am thinking a variable speed pump would cut the electrical use of the pool pump significantly. Now I also have solar electric panels, but as I've not lived here a year yet, I don't know how much power they actually generate in the summer.
If I put in a variable speed pump, will it be able to get water to the 2nd floor roof panels at a low speed or does it have to be programmed (or somehow connected for higher speed) when the sun is shinning.
Thanks in advance from a pool noobie.
