    Pump Question

    TFP...I want to change my pump to something more quite & efficient, after 11 seasons my Whisperflo is very loud.

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Just replacing the motor with a 2-speed version would be the cheapest path forward and it is virtually silent on low speed ... which is what you would run all the time except when you want the spa action.

    How much is your power cost per kW? If it is not very high, the VS is not likely the most economical path forward.
