    Whoohoo! I'm Now a 2-Speeder!

    Ordered a Pentair Optiflo 1hp 2-speed pump yesterday, and it's already in transit via UPS. Lower electric bills next summer, here I come!

    Yeah, 2 speed is the way to go for sure. Let us know how you enjoy it!

    Hey Congrats Mike! We didn't get ours installed today. It was too windy and the DH didn't want to mess with it. So we're going to shoot for tomorrow! I can't wait for those lower bills. We just switched from Cirro to StarTex this month also. That put us back at our original Cirro rate So with winter approaching (sorta), we'll be good to go.

    Good luck on your install!

    Thanks Josh and Cherie. It'll be next May before I fire up the pool again. I wanted to go ahead and get it now, just in case prices go up.

    This may not be for everyone, but instead of purchasing a complete two speed pump, I just purchased a two speed motor that fit my existing pump. Works great! Also saved several hundred dollars, and replumbing work.

    Good deal! One of the reasons I went with the Optiflo is that it's a drop-in replacement for the one I have now, and has the discharge oriented like I need to fit my cart. Plus, I couldn't argue with the price - $243.94 shipped to my door. Now I just have to figure out what i'm going to do with the two extra pumps I'm going to have.
