New to pool ownership.... Located outside Tampa, FL, we have a 20' x 40' in-ground plaster pool, 9 feet at deepest. If I calculated correctly, a 36,000+ gallon pool- it's big! 2 skimmers a DE filter, not sure about existing pump other than it is Hayward, 1.65 HP. It was working well when we bought home 3 months ago. I had to clean the filter 2 months ago after an algae bloom, plus the pool had not been in-use, so there was excess marcite after lots of use (labor day pool party, etc). Now pool pump motor is "locked up" and we want to forgo any repairs and replace with new and efficient. My husband liked the idea of an Ecopump (yes, we know their data on energy savings is likely very biased), but the 3 year warranty also sounded appealing. Any ideas on other alternatives for our size pool?
