Our pool pump is noise. It's a 1 hp and runs at about 3400 rpm.
1- there are high effeciency furnances, is there such a thing as a high efficiency pump
2- Looked at the maker's site and they have about 50 different pumps, how do you start narrowing down the selection process?
3- 1 hp seems small to me. How do you determine how much hp is needed? I presume there's a formula somewhere. I'm not assuming the previous owners and contractor put in the right option
4- a local pool store has a sign the 1 hp+ single speed motors are now illegal. So now people are using variable speed motors? why?
5- are there certain rpm's that are noiser than others?
6- is there such a thing as an efficient quiet pool pump?
What didn't I ask, i should have asked?
