My pool pump at the house I bought several years ago has finally decided to go to that great burned out bearing in the sky. I am looking to replace it and am wondering
A) Is this the model 2600X5-98? In the packet that we got when we bought the house, there is a user manual with that number at the top, but on the bill of sale it simply says a 1 HP Hayward pump. I cannot seem to see it anywhere on the pump so I attached a picture of the pump. I know it is a Hayward Super Pump.
B) Is there any benefit for my looking at a different pump vs. a straight swap? I have noticed our pump is loud, but that could have been a symptom of its dying.
Any help would be most appreciated!
Here are the logistics.
Live in Birmingham, AL, pool open all year
20k gal Saltwater Pool
24" Sand Filter
Separate Gas Heater
Separate Booster Pump for polaris
2 main inlet lines, 2 main outlet (incl 1 waterfall)
