So - I have a ~$700-800/month electric bill and just can't stand it anymore. There are a lot of other toy's I'm working on to bring the bills down, but the pool-pump adds $3-400 a month on top of the other toys.
Because the bills are so high, I'm only running the main pump 4-5 hours/day when I know I should be running it much longer. It is a 2-HP Whisperflow (see sig). Right now, I have a spare 1HP (I believe) pump that has only a year's worth of use on it (it was for my Pond - highly oversized for the pond). Can I/Should I just swap it (the 1HP for the 2HP) and run it the full 8 hours?
Over the longer-term, I'll be good looking at a dual-speed pump: Can anyone recommend one that works with a Jandy Aqualink?
In this economy, need to keep an eye on my Franklin$.
