Hi, everyone! My wife and I recently bought a house here in the Sarasota Florida area. The pool is beautiful, recently refinished and in apparently good shape. We had a pool put in at another place we own, but that's a fiberglass/salt water pool and the one here is a concrete/gunite job with a conventional chrlorine system.
Problem: There's a spa connected to the pool (with a little waterfall deal flowing down to the pool), and while the blower works the jets do not. We had a pool guy come out to have a look, and he tells us that the spa pump won't prime, and he wants to charge us $4k to change over to a one pump/variable speed system. Of course, he also wants to sell us a new control box (since the one we have supposedly doesn't work with the Pentair system he wants to sell. I should note that the other pump, for the pool, works just fine.
My thought is that if we want the spa to work we'd be better off going with another Jandy pump, if that doesn't require replacing the whole control box. Can anyone advise me as to whether that's reasonable?
Thanks in advance...
