My Pentair 1.5hp, single speed pump just bit the dust. It was 11 years old, so I guess it served us well. Would really Appreciate any advise on a new model. My local pool company recommends the Hayward Super Pump. Says the variable speed is not needed in our area (Kansas City). We typically have the pool open from April thru October. Electric Rate is .13 per kwh. Electric bills are more than double with the pool open, so I would love to save money on the electric bill if I can. I currently have the pump on a timer and run the system from say 8am to 8pm - longer if needed. There are currently 2" lines to the pool.
Please share your experience with this Newbie! Thanks so much, in advance!!!
