First time poster here. Excellent forum here. Already saved me a ton of money and given me the satisfaction of DIY!!
Looking for pump for Inground Concrete/Plaster Diving Pool, 17X30 ft, 20k gallons, 1 skimmer, 1 main drain, 5 returns,
1 HP (SF 1.25) STARITE SINGLE SPEED 115V, Hayward Sandfilter 3.14 ft.ft. Its an older pool. Piping seems mainly 1.5 inch.
From reading other posts here and learning. I am leaning toward a 2 speed pump (AZ energy is cheap) and my pool has no water features. So no need for Variable Speed.
I am trying to decide between Pentair SuperFlo 3/4 hp (341111 SF-N2-3/4A), Whisperflo WFDS-24 and an appropriate Hayward SuperPump.
Will the smaller Superflo be sufficient. Is it a good quality pump? I read that its Pentair's cheaper pump to compete with the Hayward Superpump. In which case, I do not mind paying more for the quality of Whisperflo. Is the Whisperflo supposed to be quieter? The pump is not far from our bedroom so noise is a consideration.
