Anybody have any feedback on these? I need to replace my existing one-speed, 1HP pump, and was wondering if the potential energy savings would be worth the additional cost.
I do have a pump timer and typically run the pump 8 hours over night and 2 hours during the day.

As the others have said, first take a sample to your local pool store and have them analyze it.
Once you are satisfied with the chemical levels, and if you still have cloudiness, you'll need to put in some clarifier. This stuff, from Leslie's Pools works terrific: [link=(http://www.lesliespool.c...
