Went to start up my pool for the season and my pump was just making a faint humming sounds. After a few seconds of that, the breaker went off in the house.
I have been wanting to get a new pump, so maybe this is my chance!
I have a Hayward Super Pump 1 HP 115V/230V. I have a Hayward Pro Serier Top Mount 24" sand filter.
I have always believed that the 1HP Super Pump was too much for my pool/filter. I don't get the greatest filtering unless I had a fiber type filter aid on top of the sand.
What type of pump could I replace this with? I would love to get something more energy efficient with lower flow rates to help the sand catch more of the fine particles/save energy.
