Two separate pumps for pool and spa vs. one VP for both?
Hi, I'm looking to build a pool in the next few months and I got 2 bidders so far with two different options. Both gave me good reasons so I don't know what option I should go. Please advise.
1 HP traditional pump for pool
1.5 HP booster pump for spa (8 jets)
Separate pump for water feature
PB A claims that separate pumps would save you electricity.
PB B, on the other hand, claims the VS pump is energy efficient vs the traditional pumps. It's a waste of $ to put in another pump for spa.
Any suggestions here as which one is right. I'm more confused than ever.
PS. Also, which one would you prefer? Pentair or Hayward? Sales people would tell me that they are the same. But I heard some other pool owners would say Pentair is top of the line and Hayward comes second.
