I'm planning a 15,000 IGP for my SW Florida home.
I have no idea of the ideal turnover rate, hp, brand, and type of pump to use!
I'm leaning towards a two-stage pump vs. a variable speed due to reliability and longevity. My pool builder said they have had some reliability issues with the Hayward Ecostar variable pump and therefore didn't recommend them.
My PB prefers Hayward or Jandy so I think I have it narrowed down to those two brands. I do plan on adding a Hayward AquaRite T15 chlorine generator so I'm thinking a staying with Hayward unless someone has a better suggestion.
So if I stayed with Hayward what type and size pump should I go with? The PB is recommending a 1.5 Jandy variable speed pump... they said it was actually a 3-speed pump if that makes any sense. Part or model numbers would be great!
Haward or Jandy?
2-speed or Variable?
1hp or 1.5hp?
Since I'm in Florida, this pool will be run continuously.
Thanks in advance!
