I know this is probably going to pit friend against friend, but as a newbie to these two companies I need to ask it.
I was looking at the Hayward EC75 DE filter for up to a 25,000 gallon pool with a 2-speed motor.
Then I kept seeing all the great comments about the Whisperflo's 2 speed energy savings (a big concern to me), so I checked out Pentair/Starite.
I must say, Pentair has only two offerings listed for AGP's the PLD series and the Star series. Then I looked at ALL their DE filters. Yikes! There are over 12 series and I have tried reading through them all. The PLD uses the Dynamo series motors, which indicate extremely low energy usage.
Pentair has their Eco Select Choices which are the Quad DE and System:3 Mod DE filters. I want an efficient filter, but these two lines seem to be IGP based. I assume this since they are listed under that section and not the AGP section.
So any recommendations on one versus the other as well as experience or opinion on specific models?
Thanks in advance.
