I just had a hayward sp3400vsp pump put in. I previously had a single speed 3450 rpm pump that was running about 8 hours at night.
I live in Phoenix with a peak off peak electricity plan. (My peak cost time is noon-7pm so I would like to avoid usage during this time). I would like to optimize the settings for this pump. The installer has it 1750 rpm for 8 hrs and 2850 for 4 hours. All off peak rate. My skimmer is about 50 feet from the pump. I have an attached spa with its own pump. I also have thepoolcleaner in pool vacuum so I may need to increase the rate for vacuum usage as needed.
Also my spa heater was not functional. The pump installer took a look at it and said it was due to some animal eating up the internal wires. He wants to charge me about $300 to fix the pump and $150 to put wires around it to prevent that from happening again. Does this seem like a fair price?
Thanks for your help,
