I need to replace my 1.5 HP pool pump. I am looking to replace it with a dual speed pump or variable speed pump. I have an older Aqualink RS (from 1996) that I would like to upgrade to the iAqualink when I replace the pump.
First, I have read several posts on here about the cost savings between the dual speed and variable speed pumps and which option makes the most sense with energy costs. Based on the information I have read, it looks like I should replace it with a dual speed pump. I assume I should replace it with a dual speed 1.5 hp pump, but is there a reason I should consider a different size?
In addition, I would like to be able to control the speed of the pump with the iAqualink system. Is this possible, and if so are there particular pumps that I need to consider?
I'm sure there are other things to consider when upgrading my pump and automation and appreciate any help and advise.
