Hello everyone, I'm new here, and just started learning more about the pool industry since I just purchased a property here in central FL, that came with an in ground pool. I have a Pentair WhisperFlo 1 hp single speed pump, hooked up to a Pentair EasyTouch control system with a 4 circuit wireless control panel, a Pentair MasterTemp 400 LP heater and Pentair IntelliChlor IC20.
My motor died about two days ago, and I'm trying to figure out what would be the best motor to buy as replacement. I was thinking of buying a new replacement motor of the same model, the pool company that built the pool wants to charge me $350 plus tax with installation. I am looking at the possibility of buying a 2-speed replacement motor instead and was looking at the impower motor that comes with 3 speeds and can be set up as a high-medium speeds(3450-2600 rpm's) or high-low speeds. I'm interested in the high-medium speed set up, which I believe can be hooked up with my Easytouch control system. Anyone care to share if that would be a good choice/combination to go with my system and whisper flow pump?
