Hello all, very glad to have found this site, very informative.
I could use some help selecting a new pool filter pump, dropped a tree on my Hayward 1 HP Superpump. The pool is a 20 x 40 IG, about 40k gal, Hayward model 4800 DE filter.
That's essentially the equipment that came with the pool, and I've never really spent any time making sure the equipment is right-sized, & while looking for a new pump, I've learned how much new & more efficient equipment is available today.
So with the goal of lowering electric bills, automating as much of the operation as possible, and someday being able to control the system from my iPhone, I join the TFP conversation.
I think my first step is to find the most energy efficient, energy star rebatable, right sized variable speed pump & go from there.
Pentair Intelliflo seems to have been around for awhile, I never had problems w my Hayward stuff, & I've also heard good things about Speck pumps. Money always a concern, but the long term savings & efficiency is the point - any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
