    Need new pump

    I currently have a Hayward Max-Flo High-Performance Pump, Model SP2807x10 1HP. We have always run it 24/7, but have recently installed a timer so we can turn off the pump during the night.

    Any recommendations for a new pump? Hayward suggested the Hayward EcoStar variable speed pump, but I thought I'd ask you guys.
    Installed Sept 2008. 18 x 36 Flatback Kidney Radiant, Vinyl liner 25,000 inground, Hayward Max-Flo 1 HP Pool Pump SP2807X10 (runs 24/7) , Hayward Pro-Series High Rate Sand Filter Model #S244T, Hayward Heat Pro, Frog chlorinator is turned off, TF-100 Test kit

    Location is Toronto, Ohio, overlooking the Mighty Ohio River. My river days are done. Sold the boat and Waverunner and now prefer a pool over the river.

    Re: Need new pump

    Your current pump is one of the most efficient pumps on the market. Is there a reason, you want to replace it?

    Also, with that pump and the size of your pool, you probably don't need more than about 4 hours of run time.

    Re: Need new pump

    I think if you were considering an upgrade ... either going with just a 2-speed motor on your existing pump, or if your power is a little expensive, maybe the new Hayward Maxi-Flo VS pump. Actually, wonder if you could just by the VS motor and put it on your existing pump (might also need a new impeller).

    As Mark says, the best way to save money on power is to not run the pump too much:
