I currently have a 21 year old Super Pump 2 (1 HP version) . I have Compool CP100 that I use for automation. The motor currently installed is a 1 HP Service Factor 1.4 single speed. It's 11 years old and a little noisy. I have solar panels and built in spa, So I need full speed when running spa, solar and cleaning. I'm in California and electricity is $0.1765/kWh. Options 1 or 2 preferable as I don't want to spend that much money. Any advice is appreciated.
- Should I just buy another single speed motor and replace Drive Train pump parts including Go Kit? Cheapest option but higher electricity than Variable Speed motor. Local pool store sells them but they can't install because its not Title 20 compliant. I have not problem with installing myself.
- Buy Variable speed pump with remote control unit and replace Drive Train pump parts including Go kit? I would need to control pump motor speed using mobile phone when enabling solar, spa or cleaning.
- Buy a new pump with variable speed motor. I would need a different automation control system to adjust speed for solar, spa and cleaning. Pump and automation system would cost around $2500.
