disclaimer: I am tying from my cell phone so please excuse the inevitable typo
I currently have an 18000 gallon pool with attached spa, pentairDE filter 4000 series, single speed WFE 8 I believe 2 hp which I think is way overkill for my pool. The one water feature I do have rns off a separate 3/4 hp pentair whisperflo pump.
I am interested in cutting my electricity bill and was considering a couple of options
1. Buy new variable speed pump like pentair 4x160 for around 900 bucks less 200 dollar CA 200 rebate. How easy would it be to do the switch out my self? Also I have aqualogic ps4 controller with SWCG and as I understand from the manual it only has capability to control a 2 speed pump and not the 4 of the intelliflo. Are there any ways around this?
2. Buy 2 speed pump instead. What recommendations do you have in this regard in terms of options?
3.buy replacement 2 speed pump motor and put in existing pump housing. Is this a straightfoward thing to do? And if so what pump motor would you recommend?
thanks for all the help. You guys helped me turn my pond into a pool last month
