In ground, vinyl, 18x38 diving so ~25000 gal, 1 1/2" pipe in and out, no extra stuff - using robot cleaner.
Louisiana, 12 hrs per day summer 8 hrs winter, Emtergy but not sure of cost as so many surcharges with nuke plant, hurricane fees, etc.
Current pump is 1 1/2 HP Grainger Dayton but not sold any more.
As motor internal fan no longer works and keeps shutting down on thermal, I need to do something.
Considering a VS like the Pentair Intelliflo VS or maybe a 2 speed pump if more practical. I know the existing pump outputs more volume and pressure than my system can utilize so either can downsize or speed reduce to gain some energy savings. Any recommendations? Sure would be nice if it was reliable and not needing replacement every 2 years.
