I know there has been a lot of questions about which pump, but I want to be sure to select the right thing that will last 10 years.
IG pool is 13 years old. Still using the same S200 Hayward Sand Filter. Have replaced the sand twice, a lateral here and there, and the valve once.
Hayward 1hp 2-speed Super Pump was originally installed, but failed after 8 years. Replaced with a Hayward 1 1/2hp 2-speed Super Pump, which has never been quite right. It runs very hot, shut down upon occasion.
Replaced Raypak Heater last summer with another one, uses propane. Also purchased a Dolphin Supreme and love it!
So, should I just replace the pump with another Hayward 1 hp 2-speed Super Pump and leave everything else alone? Or, is there a better consideration for a replacement? Should I consider replacing the filter at this time? If so, keep with sand or try cartridges?
Goal: I just want it to work and be "Trouble Free".
