Any thoughts on durability, serviceability, repairability, efficiency, of the Hayward super pump verses a Pentair?
I have three years running experience with a hayward super pump 1.5 hp 1.1 SF (came with the house/pool from previous owner) now needs a motor rebuild or replacement. I changed the seal a couple of years back and that is all. I am leaning toward the Century V Green replacement pump for the alleged efficiency and additional timer (cleaner pump which I am now adding) and freeze protection built in. I would not be opposed to going one way or the other if the pentair or the super pump was significantly a better choice than the other. Unfortunately one is a round face motor and the other a square face and I am fantasizing that this bright shinny new V Green pump is going to outlast the wet end.....
