Our existing single speed 1 HP pump burned out and we are looking to replace it with a variable speed. Here are the specs:
~50' of head
DE filter (60sf)
Kreepy Krawley suction cleaner
-No Spas, water features, etc.
I have been looking at Pentair and Hayward. I assume that I don't need a pump over 1.5 HP as I am limited by the 1.5" pipe's flow rate? Others have suggested the Pentair Inteliflo, but that is a 3HP unit. Also looked at the Pentair Superflo 1.5HP and the Hayward Tristar, Maxflo VS, and Super Pump VS. Any help much appreciated!
