Hi all. I have a Hayward Northstar SP4010N with a SP1610Z1 motor. I want to get a 2 speed motor and I have done a lot of research. I have in ground AA cleaning in my pool that is important for anyone to know. In calling around I got this quote, " I currently have a 2-speed pump with a toggle switch that will be a good replacement pump for the north star. This is a rebuilt 2-speed motor on a refurbished Pentair whisperflo pump. This will be a good upgrade to what you have now. The total cost with installation $425. Two year warranty." and this, "I wont be able to get you a northstar 1HP 2 speed motor, that motor is not available in a 2 speed. I can get you a brand new 1.5 HP mounted on a refurbished whisperflo pump, this is the best option that I can think of. This will accomplished eliminating your out dated pump and you will get an updated pump with new motor. Two year warranty, total price with installation $450."
My question is, do I need to have a Whisperflo at that much money? Why can't I just find someone to do the motor alone with install and a toggle switch. Wouldn't it seem that would be more cost effective?
Please advise and if you know anyone in AZ to recommend I would appreciate it as well.
I am adding the picture of the pump he is talking about. I emailed him back and asked for the model and service factor etc. but no answer as of yet.Attachment 35778
