    Re: Pumps

    Each pump uses a different wet end from another pump line

    Sp2300vsp- Uses the Maxflo wet end - Targeting AG pools

    Sp2600vsp - Uses the Superpump wet end - Targeting small IG pools with small plumbing

    Sp3400vsp - Uses the Tristar wet end - High efficiency pump targeting higher flow rate applications

    Sp3400vspvr - Same as above but with a vacuum release safety system - Targeting spa applications

    What is your application? Please fill out your signature with your equipment.

    Re: Pumps

    The SP2600vsp would be closest to what you have now and you could possible use the same wet end so you wouldn't need to do any plumbing work.

    What do you pay for electricity and why are you looking a VS pumps?

    Re: Pumps

    Electricity is pretty high on Long Island NY
    I'm paying a little more than .09 a KWH
    Was looking for variable speed for energy efficiency
    And I was putting in a geyser effect in the deep end so I can control
    The amount of pressure for that effect and the hot tub jets

    Strange that they have it listed only under "In ground pools" section of there website...and the price which is comparatively high to other AG options.

    Looks like this one might be obsolete now?

    The MaxFlo II series is an in ground pump. The Power-Flo series are the AG pumps. Hayward has discontinued the sale of the MaxFlo non-VS pumps but you can still find them on the internet.

    The SP3400 series is the EcoStar and they are still selling those.

    Re: Pumps

    It is fine ... the 2 smaller VS pumps are very similar. Actually the Max-flo is slight more efficient and usually cheaper it seems.
