my equipment is 15 years old, filter leaking and the pump is intermittently noisy (Nautilus DE filter, 1.5 purex triton pump)
so was thinking of just replacing both this year before opening instead of replacing the filter and waiting for the pump to fail.
was not going with variable speed pump - my season is only 4 mths max but 2 new pool guys out gave me the following ..1 likes pentair, 1 likes Hayward.
estimate #1 - Hayward super pump 1.5 & Hayward DE progrid 48 filter
$ 1963 plus tax.....also $50 off opening price of $375.
estimate #2 - Pentair Whisperflo 1.5 & Pentair FNSplus filter 48
$ 2319 plus tax.....still waiting to hear about a discount of opening price of $422
any opinions from the esteemed panel?
