will this variable speed pump, or any others line up the same for the input and output 2 inch water connectors like a Hayward sp3400vsp

Hello Mitchell, currently any of the pumps we carry will not match the unions of the Hayward Ecostar. The waterway does come with swivel unions and risers to make the install pretty easy.

I have an A.O. Smith K48N2PA105C4, would this be a good replacement? Pool guys have told me the HP is overkill for my pool. Also, is the warranty 2 years for DIY? Thanks

Hi Chad, Yes this pump would be a great replacement for your K48N2PA105C4 you will save a ton your operational costs by going to a variable speed pump, normally 50% - 70% savings or a single speed. We wrote this article on the Savings of a Variable Speed Pump Vs. Single Speed Pump which you may find helpful. Yes, the 2-year warranty applies to DIY installations.
