Hello All, have been lurking and learning as I look to replace my 1 1/2 (1.95 HPSF) Single Spped Speck Pump. By the way it sounds, I'm guessing I'm inside a month before it goes Tango Uniform and dies. Through reading and some advice, looking to replace with either Whisperflo WFDS-26 for $587 (1.65 HPSF), Superflo SF-N2 1 1/2 for $440 (1.65 HPSF), or the SuperFlo VS for $695 (1.65 HPSF). All will require me running 230v to the pad; additionally the Whisperflow must have a digital timer, SF could use a timer, and VS doesn't need one at all (about another $200 + install). I have 2" pipes.
Pure $-wise, the SuperFlo VS seems like a no brainer over the long term, but don't know if it will have the push to run my pool cleaner or waterfall.
What is the real difference between WF and SF? Will the VS cut it? Any thoughts appreciated.
