    Purchased a SQL1072 3/4 HP 2 Speed 115V

    Hello All,
    Purchased a 3/4 HP 2 speed motor today for my pump. It's re-manufactured so the price was right. Looking forward to getting it installed. I'll replace the seal and add a hi/low switch to the cover when it comes in and use my same timer. I'm planning on running it on low. I'll update and let you know how it works out. I'll keep my old motor as a backup. The pay back should be about 2 years (20 months).

    Ordered from Digikey a toggle switch SPDT (PN EG4816-ND) for $4.28 (rated for 2 hp) and rubber boot (PN335-1125-ND) for the switch $3.20 with shipping came to $10.28 for a high/low switch for the motor. I'll drill the cover and mount the switch.

    Got it installed today.
    High 6 psi/52 GPM
    Low .5 psi/23 GPM

    Increased my pump run time to about 20 hours.

    Adjusted the pressure switch on the pool heater. It works on low. SWCG is working no issue.

    I'll update tomorrow.

    Turned down the pump run time 12 hours on low. SWCG 80%. Pool is in Full Sun. Also adjusted the main drain and the skimmer to fully open. Skimmer action was slow anyways. Figured since heat rises, take from the bottom of the pool.

    Only time will tell.

    We had a big pool party. About 20 people in the pool, the bottom is cloudy, FC is at 6 and CC is .5. Just waiting for the filter to do it's job.

    Just an update. Happy with the setup. Pump runs 10 hours during the summer on low, about 5 hours during the winter.

    I know this is old but I am always amazed at the wealth of information on this site. I should stop reading because I am creating new projects for myself.

    LOL. I has a single speed 3/4 hp, very happy with the "upgrade". My SWCG needs to run for 10-12 hours in the summer. 95% of the time the motor runs on low. Saves me money.

    I am walking away. The next project on my list is a heater and that is ALL for 2015. Sigh.
