Hi all. I have been reading this board for a while and find it immensely helpful. My pump has become loud and sounds like a rock tumbler. I am overwhelmed by the choices to replace it and the factors involved, so any help would be appreciated.
OLD EQUIPMENT-installed 1999
Jacuzzi Magnum force pump. Motor says 1hp, SF 1.1
Jacuzzi CFR75 filter
2" pipes: 22 foot run to skimmer, 36 foot to drain. Three jets in pool, look like 1/2" or so
No water features
Solar panels on roof of one story house
I'd like to keep the cost down so I am thinking about a single speed energy efficient model (perhaps a WhisperFlo WFE-24). If I can keep the old filter that would be great due to huge cost savings. The quieter the better but my A/C compressor is next to the pool pump so there will always be noise. Pump doesn't have to be silent. My concern is the flow rate the filter can handle. This Jacuzzi equipment is hard to find specs on and the filter, a C-9475 cartridge is only 75 square feet.
I also am at a loss over up-rated or full-rated. Seems to me if it is the exact same parts with a different label then there should be no difference, but this is my first pool and I am far, far from being an expert. I hope I included all the relevant information above and in my signature. Thank you all so much for your help and recommendations.
