This could be a dumb question but I have a 1HP pentair pump that is connected to my pentair 75 Sq Ft cartridge filter. The pump is complete overkill at 1HP for a 5,500 gallon pool.

Is there a way to somehow change the motor to a 2 speed. Or do I have to buy a brand new pentair 2 speed pump if I want to save on electricity.

I looked at INYO pools and it says this motor would work? But I have no idea, I'm confused
