So long time listener, first time caller. We're about a week away from breaking ground on our new build (15,000 gal 28x20x15.5 geometric design)
We're having some difficulty choosing a pump. Our builder is saying as we will have low demands (no spa, no solar yet, only water feature is a couple deck jets) that with our $.15/kw electric rates we should get the Pentair WhisperFlo 1/2hp WF-2. He didn't feel a variable speed pump would be cost efficient. Now if someone is trying to get me to give him less money who am I to argue. But, I still fear raising rates or increased demands (like maybe I'm cold and need solar panels slapped on the house). Or maybe some laminars fall off the back of a truck...
Anyway, any thoughts?
