I've tried to find info on forum about Ecopump pool pumps and it seems the general opinion is that it's not all that impressive and it's basically a high priced multi speed pump. The Ecopump is made in Goergetown,Tx about 45 min south of my locale plus the fact it's got the 3 year warranty is what sold me. I just got my first electric bill and running the pump 24/7 and 1-2 hrs a day on high with the booster pump my bill was $10 higher than the previous month. I pay .08 cent per KW. I gotta say I am really pleased with the pump. Does anyone else have #'s for the pumps your running,just to compare? Thanks.
