I just hit my 1 year anniversary with my home and here in Arizona soon it will be pool season again (sorry folks in colder regions!). I was going to work on my pool and I noticed that the main pump wasn't working. I checked the capacitor and it seemed to be OK. So I can only assume that it is the pump itself. The capacitor went out last year too, so I started thinking that maybe this pump is just junk. It appears that the pump body is a Pentair Whisperflow 1.5HP Model WFE-6. However, it appears that the pump motor is an Emerson 1081 ESQ1102 1.0HP, SF 1.65. With that said, I have no idea what GPM this pump has.
So my question is... first and foremost is this pump sufficient for my pool?
And if it is... is it more worth it to figure out what is wrong with it or go for a two-speed pump?
