Hi i am about to close on my first home and it has a pool, I have never owned a pool and know nothing about how to take care of it properly and i do not want to pay thousands of dollars to somebody that is a "Pool Expert". With that being said there are some repairs that needs to be done to the equipment as far as I know the pump works but needs a new strainer basket the pump is a 1hp pentair challenger and i was wondering if it is better to spend the money to buy a energy efficiency pool pump or to just go with what i have? Thank you so much for your responses and expertise. NEW POOL GUY!!
