Need some opinions. I just bought a pool kit from Pool Warehouse. 16x32 rectangle w/4-6-4 sport bottem. Aqua Genie Skimmer, 4 deck jets, in wall pool cleaner attachment. I thought I wanted the 2 speed Tristar 1.5 hp, so that's what I got. In talking to the electrician that is wiring my pool, he said I wanted the Variable speed. I had only heard of the ecostar, which was out of my price range. I then found the Max-Flo VS. Talked to Pool Warehouse and they said I had to pay a 25% restocking fee on the Tristar, plus shipping to send it back and shipping on the new pump. That comes to about a $250-$300 increase on the pump.
Needless to say, after the hole was started we found out we had to reroute our Sanitary sewer (long Story) so Money is getting tight.
Do you think the increased cost is worth for the variable speed or should I just stick with the Tristar?
Thanks in advance. More details available if needed!! LOL
