I apologize in advance if this has been discussed recently. I need advice on a 2-speed pump.
My 10 yr old 2hp single speed pump is leaking at the seal and looks to be on it's deathbed.
I live in a relatively low-cost electricity district ~ .14/kwh (imperial irrigation district, southern california). I thought about a variable speed but the excellent analysis by mas98 among others convinced me the ROI is low.
Therefore I am looking at buying a 2-speed but I am wondering about programming compabitibility with an older Jandy Aqualink OneTouch (I would guess about 6-10 yrs old). The interface looks like this: http://www.zodiacpoolsystems.com/Produc ... Touch.aspx
Are there issues with connecting a 2-speed to a Jandy Aqualink and being able to program separate low and high speed run times?
Can you recommend any specific models? My pool is 13,000 sq feet with a raised waterfall spa, ie the returns are split 50/50 to the spa and pool right now. Will the low speed be able to overcome gravity and return to the spa?
As you can tell I'm a newbie. Any and all advice is graciously accepted. I would be hiring this out to a pro. I'm not comfortable with electricity.
