Hello, I am new to this forum, and appreciate all the good
info I see being shared.
I'm looking at replacing my 2005 functioning WhisperFlo single speed pump.
I thought I was under the gun to buy before Dec 31, 2104 to get the local
$200 rebate, but after calling today, the rebate is planned to be extended into 2015.
Greatly appreciate your input and if it's easier to point me to an existing post, that would
be appreciated as well.
Objective - reduce electric usage; reduce pump noise. I typically run the pump 2.5-3hrs during the winter and 6-7hrs in the summer with the solar on (Apr-Nov).
I have no automation system other than a controller that opens the solar valve when the switch is turned to auto. I also have a basic rotatory timer that starts/stops the pool pump. My thoughts were to run the VS pump at a higher RPM all summer to heat the pool via the solar and then back the RPM way down in the winter (non-swim months). I wasn't really planning on any additional controllers.
Location - San Diego, CA
2005 WhisperFlo single speed 1HP pump - 3450rpm (included a couple of photos).
Eleven (11) 4x12 Eco Sun solar panels (rated at 3GPM minimum; 5GPM recommended),
mounted on single story roof with short piping.
16,300 gallon pool; 1.5" piping to/from pool; all rest of the piping 2".
No spa, waterfall or gas heater.
Periodically use a Hayward robotic pool cleaner via the port in the skimmer.
