Just purchased a house with an old single speed pump and I'm distraught at the electricity bills. I'm considering a VS replacement and have some newbie questions.
Setup: 5000 gal, 50ft of head, cartridge filter, 1.5hp single speed pump
So I'm looking at variable speed pool performance curves and the low speeds of the VS pumps don't look to operate at 50 feet of head. Take for example the Pentair Superflo VS
My newbie question: does this mean that the lower speeds won't work for me and I'll be using the higher speed of the pump at all times?
Thanks for the help!
