2 speed or not
Ok, looks like it might be time for a motor replacement on my 1.5 hp pentair/pac fab challenger pump. Its about 4-5 years old but lives a hard life due to the forest I call a back yard. Considering a two speed motor. Would that be a good choice for a pool that gets a ton of tree "debris". My concern is that the low speed may not circulate the water fast enough to allow full turn over within 24 hour time period, is there a formula for figuring that out? Pool is about 24-25k gallons. Seems the 1.5 hp 2 speeds have a .5 hp low speed. Seems too small to me. I had a loaner .75 hp motor before replacing the pump/motor last time and it was enough to keep the pool circulated but would not run the pool cleaner (suction).
