Hi temp pump fittings for 1HP pump?
I need to re-plumb my pump on in-ground pool. I have a 1HP WhisperFlo pump with standard 2" PVC fittings, but two of the fitting broke.
I know that if a pump ever runs dry (mine did due to a float getting stuck in the skimmer wier door!), the water inside the volute gets extremely hot. I've also seen that some manufacturers make high-temperature pump fittings just for this purpose.
My question - are the high temp fittings worth the investment?
Also, I have Praher fitting now and I can't find them anywhere in USA!
