    What pump to replace Jandy MHPM 1.5 with

    I have a 38K gallon pool with a hot tub flowing into it. I have 2 Jandy MHPM 1.5 pumps that are 9 years old, one for the pool and filter, the other circulates the hot tub. I new to replace one of them now and the other pretty soon. What pump would you guys reccomend to replace since it is discontinued? Secondly, should I switch to a variable speed pump as I hear this may save on electric costs?

    Welcome to TFP!

    Is there anything wrong with the wet end?

    If not I would replace the motor with a 2 speed to save on electric. If you could add your pool info to your profile it will help to make recommendations.

    ... ROI on a VS is tough to realize. 2 speed was less than 8 months for me.
