I have 12 a year old 27K gallon 18X40 vinyl pool with 1-1/2" piping.
Two returns, bottom drain and two skimmers.
Hayward Perflex EC75 DE filter.
Hayward Super Pump 230V Model C48K2N143B1 A.O. Smith 1 h.p. motor.
PPL electric rate is $0.08777 per kWh.
I run my pump about 8 hours a day in S.C. Pennsylvania for 4 months/year.
Sanitize using 12.5% liquid chlorine with injection pump.
Not sure if I should go with two speed motor or VS. due to return on investment and reliability.
So what pump/motor would you recommend for this pool.
Appreciate any input.
