I have a 10,000 pool with approximately 45-50 feet of head. I need a pump, filter and in line salt. Looking for energy efficiency and easy maintenance. What do you recommend?
Hello Kevin. The Pentair SuperFlo® VS 1.5 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump provides the energy efficiency and durability desired in a variable speed pool pump. The Star Clear Plus 120 Sq Ft. Pool Filter 1.5" Ports provides an extra margin of filter area for a 10K gallon pool volume combined with easy maintenance. The AquaRite Salt Chlorine Generator would provide sufficient quantities of chlorine for a 10K gallon pool volume to maintain excellent water quality. The Aqua-Rite component-based SWG system provides a means to repair the system as economically as possible.
I currently have Hayward TriStar SP3200X which has sprung a leak - it has the two speed SP3210Z2ME motor. By the time I buy a new one with new diffuser and impellar its over 1/2 the price of this - without a new motor. Could I replace my existing setup with this and have a whole new everything?
Hello James. The Performance Data for the Hayward TriStar SP3220X with the SP3210Z2ME motor indicates a 97 GPM flow rate at 50 feet of head (high speed @ 3450 RPM). The PureLine PL2705 has a 52 GPM flow rate at 50 feet of head High Speed @ 3450 RPM). Presuming the TriStar was matched to the flow requirements of the pool, the PL2705 may not be the optimal choice. The Hayward TriStar VS Pump - W3SP3202VSP performance more closely resembles the SP3210Z2ME. Unless the current impeller and diffuser are defective in some manner, replacements may not be necessary.
PureLine Prime VS. Does it have a freeze protection feature? Does it have a diagnostic option? Who makes it it? Meaning is is possible a Pentair with just a different name shown due to the model? My pool is 25,000 gallons and the piping ios 2 inch and the skimmers are roughly 12 feet and 35 feet away from where the pump would be located. I have kept my equipment in a large shed so all stay out of the weather. Is that an issue? I use a second motor to run my polaris. Can the pump do both?
Hello Bob. The PureLine Prime VS - Variable Speed Pool Pump 1.65 HP - PL2705 is assembled in the United States by PureLine. It features a Century Motors v-Green 165 motor with freeze protection. Adding a V-Green 270 User Interface (optional) would provide the ability to conduct field diagnostics. Reference the attached Installation and User Guide for plumbing Guidelines. The Polaris Cleaner would require the Booster Pump to remain in operation.
Can I automate this with a mechanical timer switch?
Hi Jeff, variable-speed motors like the one on this PureLine Prime VS pump are designed to be powered on all of the time so they can run their own schedules from the onboard controller that you program. The motor manual tells you how to program it so you can really save on your electric bill.
Thanks for the info! Would be nice to get rid of the old mechanical timer!
4 to 8 hrs
Hack saw and measuring tape
Other than the tedious part of making accurate measurements, the installation was fairly simple. The new pump stood slightly lower than the single stage it was replacing so it was necessary to cut both incoming lines. This worked out quite well since the 3-way valve that joined the 2 incoming lines was old and it gave me the opportunity to replace it as well.
1. Turned off the power to the old pump and removed the electrical leads.
2. Removed the old pump and 3-way valve by cutting the pipes with a hack saw.
3. Cut the 2 incoming, 2-inch lines to the necessary height
4. Attached the 3-way valve to the incoming lines using EL joints so it matched the necessary height of the pump
5. Attached the pump to the 3-way valve with a short piece of 2-inch pipe so the out-flow would line up with the filter.
6. Measured, cut, and assembled additional PVC pipe and EL joints to connect the filter to the pump. The filter pipe size was 1-1/2 inch, so this required a reducer coupling.
--- Before gluing any fittings, I assembled them to make sure the measurements were correct.
7. Attached the electrical leads.
8. I filled the leaf basket with water.
9. Finally, I turned on the power.
Since this was a DIY, I did not have the equipment to pressure test the new plumbing, but I had faith in my gluing skills. All turned out well and there were no leaks.
