Have a really old noisy Hayward pump that has incredibly lasted 13 years here in Mesa. I'm looking to replace it now and the power company offering rebates until April 14, 2014.
Thinking of the Hayward Ecostar. Thoughts? Any recommendations on a local contractor or installer.
I looked at the pricing on the internet and found it was going for$885 with free shipping from Amazon. After reading reviews , I was scared off by the number of buyers getting used pumps that were advertised as new and numerous operability problems and return issues. Also noted that the Hayward warranty is only one year for internet and self installed prices and three years for approved contractors. Which way would you go?
Also, I have an oddsized equipment pad. Looks like a pre-cast concrete that is 27" x 45" and is cracked badly and probably should replace it when I replace the pump. I need a pad this size to keep equipment in current positions without major replumbing. What are my options for pad replacement? Concrete, plastic, rubber?
Thanks to all for your help,
