New pool owners here. We come to realized we need a new pump and filter.
I have an In ground. 40.0000 gallons 2 skimmers.
Does anyone have this pump? Would this be enough power? And what filter should I get to go with it?
Thank you in advance!
derr: I would definitely pay a pool professional to install a Pentair intelliflo much much better pump and will save you a ton of money in the long run.
liz: Thank you!
We have a pool guy to install. I just didn’t think he knew equipment well.
Is it the vs? What filter do you recommend to go w that? We have a sand filter. And should I stick with the sand filter? Or do something else ?
luke: If your pool guy does;t know what these are, you should find a new pool guy. To be a great pool guy you have to be cutting edge on the latest technologies. I’ve been installing variable speed pumps for about 7 years now, so they aren’t exactly new.
derr: Liz Sullivan I prefer cartridge filter myself. Go bigger than what you think you need. you’ll be grateful for that decision in the long run. However if you want to go back with sand because that’s what you’re comfortable with, go within SD8p or bigger it’s also a Pentair product.
I also agree with Luke, on this one it’s your pool guy doesn’t know what a variable speed is you might want to find another pool guy. In 2 years it will be mandatory Nationwide for all pools to have variable speed pumps.
teia: This is going to sound really dumb, but do you know where the on/off switch is on the Hayward motors?
derr: if it’s a single speed, there isn’t one. You should have a timer or switch.
teia: That’s what I thought. I have a switch but it won’t run when it’s flipped on. Am I missing something? I’ve had this pool 4 years and never had an issue…
derr: teia, check the breaker, even if it doesn’t look trip turn it off then back on. See if that helps. If not you’ll need to get an electrician. Or pool professional out there.
