Looking for a pump recommendation. I have installed a solar water heater. Pump needs to be low flow, quiet, self priming and ok to use with salt water. It will run around 6 hours per day. The water runs through about 800 feet of small tubing. Pump will be located about 25 feet from pool and 30 feet from solar panels. Distance from solar panels to pool is approximately 60 feet and water will need to be lifted about 8 feet. I am using a regular garden hose from the pool to the pump and back from solar panels. Trying to keep price reasonable since i am not sure if this is going to get the temp up enough. Low flow would be below 750 GPH.
