    Spa Blower

    I need to replace my spa blower Polaris 470-02 60hz 240v 1.6 hp. It's attached to my pool. Question: very little dif in price fr 1.5 hp to 2 hp. Should I go with larger and will it make much dif?

    The larger blower will just create more bubbles not stronger jets. Have you ever tried the jets with the blower removed? Some spas don't require it at all while others will not create bubbles without a blower.

    Yeah. Just not the same without the bubbles. I went ahead and ordered the same blower $200.
