I posted about this yesterday and it got lost in the transition. DOH!
The low speed on my pump has died, so now I have a 1-hp pump which is too powerful for my pool (smaller dirt blows right thru the filter and back into the pool). I have no timer or controller on the main pump; used to run it 24/7 on low. That worked very nicely; I used high speed for backwash.
The upshot is that I will need a new pump, tho it's not extremely urgent since I do have circulation. The Intelliflo has been recommended to me; it's very appealing b/c of the built-in controls (timer, etc.) and automatic variable speed. However, while looking at the online pool stores, I found lots of different accessories. Are any of these required adjuncts to the Intelliflo pump? After all, the pump itself is pricey, so I don't want to commit to that and then discover the expenses are just beginning. . .
I would like to do some upgrading of my equipment, and the Intelliflo would be the beginning of that process. If I decide to go that route, anyway!
TIA for responses, advice, and suggestions.
