Neighbors and us are tired of the noise from the current 1 hp motor and I figure a variable speed system would help this out to a large degree. And over the long run save a bit on the power bills. While the Polaris sweep has been trouble free (other than getting stuck in a corner) I'm pretty sure I'll ditch the booster and go with a pool robot of some kind too.
I think I like the idea of SVRS safety with kids in the pool, but I'm uncertain how well this plays with solar arrays 2 stories up.
The front runner is an IntelliPro Variable Speed Pool Pump P6E6VS4H-209L at about $1000. So I'd rather not make a mistake of this magnitude. . .
Since this is a 3HP pump vs the old 1HP, I think with the correct automatic valves I could also remove the mostly unused 1HP spa booster pump too.
The previous owner basically removed the solar controls from the system and only use the solar controller as a timer, so a Pentair Sun Touch may be what I need to keep everything compatible.
Does this seem like a DIY project?
NOTE: pool is getting plenty of use right now and I don't want to mess it up. :-0
Your thoughts appreciated.
