QUIET pool pumps?

Postby johnkloosphx » Wed 29 Sep, 2010 15:45

I just bought a brand new Pentair CCP420 pump / filter combination. It came with a 1.5 "whisperflo" pump. It was much louder than my old unit so I prevailed upon the contractor to swap out the pump with a Pentair 1.5 "Challenger" model. What a huge difference! I don't have any fancy sound measuring devices but I swear the decibles weht down by 40%.

The "Challenger" is the same type of pump I had installed previously. It was made by "American" before Pentair bought them out. It had been installed for 14 years and was still running as quietly as the day I got it.

Bottomline. Pentair's Challenger is very quiet.

QUIET pool pumps?

Wow? Old post from 2005.

The new variable speed pumps by Hayward and Pentair with the LCD info displays are quiet on low speed. I've personally heard both pumps, programmed down to 600 thru 900 RPM for normal low speed filtering cycle that are just ridiculously quiet. A typical portable blade house-fan is much noisier in contrast.
