Hi all. This is my first post on the forum. I have a small pool that was installed in Nov 2005. Have had trouble maintaining chlorine levels for quite some time, plus, the pump is VERY noisy in my small backyard and overkill from an energy standpoint. So, I am thinking of having the following done:
- Replace the 2hp pump with a .75hp multi-speed pump to combat the noise and save some money on electricity. The pool service is recommending the PESC-180L MAX-E-GLASS PUMP .75HP FREE 115/230V.
- For the chlorine issues, the pool service recommends replacing the cell (they can't figure out what's wrong and have spent lots of time with Jandy on the phone trying to troubleshoot, but it's been painful). Given the age of the system, they recommend swapping the Jandy cell and controller with the Pentair Intellichlor.
Given that the pool is pretty darn small, does all of this make sense? Is it worth spending $2000 to make these changes? Also, will the Aqualink still work given that the Jandy pump and Aquapure are going away?
Any help/input would be appreciated. Thanks
