I just wanted to first off say thank you all very much for all the help you have given me. I have been reading and researching and the one thing I can say without a doubt is that it makes no sense to get a VS motor over a 2 speed. Practically everyone believes all the hype and you all are so great in taking the time to explain, not once, twice and with some people even 3,4 & 5 times, why it doesn't really make since to buy a VS motor over a 2 speed.
Unfortunately I have run into a few snag's. I thought I would have already purchased my motor but have had some additional expenses with the rest of my yard upgrade and irrigation system. Boy, I wish I had been able to get a Home Warranty with this house. The previous owners didn't take care of anything. I also had to buy a new Heat Pump in November. The house was built in 2004, it's crazy. All new plants due to them not watering and or servicing the irrigation system so that it needs replacement of the timer and I also have to do a lot to replace the water filtration system. Did I happen to mention that I had to spend 6 hours cleaning the master tub and shower! AMAZING!!!
Anyways, enough babbling. This is what I am hearing about the 2ez speed, that it tends to quit sooner then similar motors that don't have the timer because of the extreme heat here. I have considered getting a cover and or like someone also suggested and it would be cheap, doing a simple coolaroo type enclosure over all my pool equipment to keep the sun off it but also for appearance...
On that note, I got all new Solar Screens for only $452 with my estimates from other company's as high as 3K! so if your in AZ let me know and I will tell you who to call. I also found the 2ez motor 1 hp for $279... My other consideration tho is getting a re-manufactured 2 speed without a timer for $$195 and getting a T106 to run it as I was told that this motor will last longer... Thoughts???
