    Dual Speed Pump with manual toggle switch

    Trying to find a two speed pump that comes with a manual toggle switch already installed. Does such a thing exist? I read somewhere that Whisperflo has this feature, but can't find one for sale that says this in the description. Someone please help.

    Thanks in advance!

    Christa,

    My Pentair Optiflo has a manual toggle switch installed. It toggles between low/off/high.

    Are you looking for an aboveground pump or inground?

    My Clearwater Hi-flo has the switch you describe.

    It makes a difference which pump is recommended, if you have an AG or IG.

    Need one for an inground pool. If there is no such thing, where do you get an external wall mounted switch. Is there a special switch for each brand that would have to be ordered or can you pick up something at the hardware store. Sorry I'm so clueless.

    Thanks for your help!

    I have not seen an in-ground pump with a built-in switch. With a little electrical knowledge, it is fairly easy to add a switch.

    I just purchased a Hayward Super Pump 1 HP 2-speed pump, and It came with a switch installed in the back plate on the motor. Here is the place I bought it from, best price and fast service:
