My old pump is getting loud and my energy bill from running are getting worse.
I have a century 1hp pump with a SF of 1.4. 26,500 Gallon Pool.
I was looking at the Pentair 011018 3 HP VS Pump but they also have a 1HP VS Pump 011008 but its like ~$100 more. I am thinking the increased HP of the 011018 will have a higher operating cost than the 1 HP. I have 1.5" piping also. I am not sure if I will have an issue with the 3HP running or cost. Pentair does make a Super-Flo 1.5 HP VS pump 342000 for like ~300 less but it only has a 1 Year warranty vs. the 3 year warranty of the intelliflo.
Any insight will be helpful.
