Hey guys, anyone out there know about pool pumps and can recommend what I should do.
I fried my pool pump and I need to get a new one. Was 1.5hp pump, pool is 60,000 ltrs
Looked on Trade Me and there are lots that were $400 - $500 for a single speed and I thought that wasn't too bad
Went to the local pool shop today and there prices are $900 for a single speed or $1600 for a variable speed, I thought fuck.
Comparing the variable speed with the single speed the pool pump would pay for itself in power savings in a little under four years.
So my thoughts are go for the flash one from a local retailer or buy a cheaper one off Trade Me and hope it lasts.
(pools are expensive and I will never have another one again)
