Should I Repair or Replace
When your pump needs repair it is the perfect time to ask this question. Here are our recommendations to help with your decision.
If your pump is less than 10 years old and the repair is less than $400 then you might want to consider just fixing it. Although an upgrade to a variable speed pump is always a good option to consider.
Is you pump is old technology. Most metal pumps are open impeller pumps that likely have a lot of internal wear. These pumps are extremely inefficient by today’s standards and are good candidates to be replaced regardless of the cost of a repair.
If your pump is more than 10 years old and the cost of the repair is more than $400 then you should replace it with a new single speed pump or a variable speed pump.
Always consider an upgrade to a variable speed pump for your filter pump. Variable speed pumps will save you $700 or more in electricity cost per year over a single speed pump and they run cooler and quieter which is good for the pump as well as the filter.
