I have a 12,000 gallon in ground salt water pool with attached jacuzzi and three water features, all Jandy. I have two pumps, that I think are about 6 years old. They are PHPM 1.5's. One runs the water features, and the other the filter pump. The one that runs the water features got so loud I disconnected it to take a look, sounded like bearings. Local pool store wanted about $300 for a new motor, I could maybe rebuild with new bearings but this got me into looking at variable speed pumps.
Without me knowing Dynamic Head, Jandy support suggested the VS-FHP1.0.
The pool store suggested that Jandy but was pushing the Hayward EcoStar. Jandy said don't use a hayward pump they are not compatible, I am fine with that logic.
I have also seen Pentairs name around, so they are good as well I am assuming.
Should I go for the VS-FHP1.0 Jandy? I don't know what settings I need to do to make it up to 90% more energy efficient, I see it listing for $706 from Bonaza.
I have had the water features disconnected for about a week so would like to get it up and running, will replace the water feature pump with the existing filter pump, and upgrade the filter pump to the variable speed.
Big purchase wanted to ask on here before I made a move.
