Hi all. My daughter officially opened the pool last weekend with outside temp near 80 and water temp a blamy 73 So let the pool games begin!
I had a post last year about picking a pump for our new pool. We ended up going with a WFE-3 whisperflo and it has been performing well. However, I am a little concerned about how much noise the pump makes. Perhaps the name is not all it's cracked up to be. The pump is outside my son's bedroom wall and you can hear it from his room although he doesn't complain. Neighbor has same pool with 1.5 horsepower superflo that is standard for PB. His pump seems quieter but I have no way to measure for sure. Noise is not painful...just annoying. Shouldn't a 3/4 HP whisperflo be noticeably more quiet than a superflo. Am I being paranoid or are my expectations too high? First thought was to contact PB but interestingly, he has been MIA since I disputed his final bill last summer. Still haven't finalized the contract despite best efforts and not sure if this impacts my warranty although I did purchase the pump on my own and PB installed. Is it worth contacting a pentair service rep? Sorry about so many questions....Thanks in advance!
