I'm thinking about upgrading my Hayward SuperPump 700 1.5HP to variable speed.


I have looked at the 1.65HP variable speed pump (part number: , price: $570) and the upgrade kit (part number: , price: $700) - I see the kit has the tune up kit (definitely need that) but it seems to also have an impeller as well. 

My question, is should I buy the motor and the tune up kit for ~$600 or go for the ~$700 option. My pump now is right at two years old.

Hi Jamier, the upgrade kit will give you a 1.5HP impeller which you already have, so the complete kit may not be worth it for you.  It is better suited to someone who has an existing pump under 1.5HP or if there are issues with your existing impeller (broken or damaged vanes).
