Hi, my pool pump has died. Originally there was a Jandy Stealth SHPF2.0-2 (HP 2.0) installed. It died 7 years ago and was replaced with a Century B2841V1, which is 1.0 hp. This required that low speed was enabled to run the filter pump for both the spa and pool. That seemed odd to me, because it was not required on the old Jandy Stealth.
Going from 2.0 hp to 1.0 hp required that I have both filter pump and low speed turned on in order to have the pump run. I also did not care for the lower performance as I have a 42 inch waterfall. I would like to put something more powerful in, but at the same time have something that is energy efficient.
Would the Century variable speed ECM16SQU be a good replacement?
