I am interested in a low noise and energy saving pump/motor combo, or just a motor replacement.
Currently I have a 1.5 Hp Whisperflo with 2 inch piping on everything above ground.
Pool Specs: 18 x 36 rectangular Plaster unground. Approx 27000-28000 gals
Main drain plugged (Will try and unplug when it gets warmer)
60 sqft Purex 2000 DE.
Hayward ultra Vac
** Pool pump is approx 1.5 feet above pool deck.
I have a Jandy check valve on the suction side of the pump.
Future upgrades 0-2 years: 400k btu Nat gas heater
Remodel in 2-4 years: Add waterfall/ and or other features
Add spa/perhaps spill over type
Two main drains
Two or more skimmers
More return jets
Initially I was looking at a simple 2 speed pump, or 2 speed motor replacement. That way we could enjoy peace and quiet instead of listening to our Screamflo pump.
However I saw the ecotech ez motor for $425 and the Hayward superpump vs pump for $680.
1. Is there any reason I shouldnt consider the ecotech ez for my application?
2. If I went this route should I change the impeller on my whisperflo?
3. Since the Superpump has 1.5 inch in/out and the rest of my plumbing is 2" should I even consider it?
I will be installing myself which ever way I go. That is why the intelliflo is out of the question with the way the warranty is for the price.
If it makes the most sense I would do a separate pump when we did the water features upgrade.
Thanks in advance.
