    plumbing advice and install tips for new VS pump - worth upgrading pump from 1.5hp to 2.7hp?

    I think the rebate took less than two weeks from submission to receiving in the mail. Would have been faster if not for the Thanksgiving holiday.

    Thanks for the feeback on the Jandy. I already went with the Superflo since it was less expensive and offered comparable energy savings to the larger hp Jandy.

    So the install went pretty smoothly. In fact the SuperFlo was the perfect height for the existing suction line so there was no need to make any height adjustments. On the return side, decided to use a 45 closer to the multiport. See photos below. New pump is humming along now. Going to work...

    Picked up the SuperFlo VST from Leslie's for just under $1,020 with tax. It was their last one and a July 2021 build so it should have the RS-485 connectivity for future use. Thanks for everyone's input on the decision. Also picked up the MX-8 Elite while the 10% off and $100 rebate is going...

    I could always work a low cost arrangement with my installer friend to show professional install to get the 2 year warranty. It's just not all warranties are worthwhile especially if they require that you remove the part and ship it back for inspection before they send a replacement. Then...

    Thanks @mknauss for the info on the EC part number and one year warranty. Is the warranty worth getting? I ask because I was looking to install this weekend or early next week so I was going to pickup locally rather than wait on shipping from a website. Online with 1 year warranty is $1,059...

    I believe I am past the detour of the larger Jandy 2.7hp VSP that a local pool store suggested. Maybe it was the promise of energy savings with a higher HP VSP combined with the "sex appeal" of the iQPUMP01 wifi app control, but I think I've gotten back on track. I stopped by their store again...
