    Help finding a replacement pump

    Want to replace my Hayward RS2000 pump, with a variable speed. Where do I start with researching things? Flow rates, HP.

    Anyone have any suggestions? New to the whole pool ownership thing, and Thank! everyone for their knowledge.


    This site has been a great help!

    Thanks,

    That Superflo might be a little weak for the spa / water feature in this case.

    You either need to look at the larger VS pumps, or just look for a comparable 2-speed to what you have, even just putting a 2-speed motor on your existing pump.

    Yep, did not notice the spa. Definitely not big enough. Sorry.

    Welcome!

    First, I must say I was expecting to see somewhere in Michigan listed as your location when i saw the screen name. Are you a transplant?

    I'd work backwards from your existing pump. Find the frame size of your motor and then hunt for a 2 hp variable speed the same size. It'll be a straight bolt in, no plumbing required. Don't ask me what to do about rewiring things - you've exhausted my store of knowledge about VS pumps.

    Yes a transplant!! but loving the great pool weather. I have been doing a lot of reading and it just makes my head spin. In your opinion (a 2HP) would there be enough room to add solar heat on a single story home.

    My smaller pump with a 1HP motor runs a large solar panel array.

    Your bigger pump (it is the Leslie's equivalent (Hayward RS are only sold by them) of a Super II I think) with a 2HP motor will be more than enough.
