super pump 1 speed unless you are really wanting to monitor energy usage but only in CA is really needed and is great to work on.

Whisper flow 1 speed is a great quite pump and not bad to work on

As the Service Manager for a big city(5 Million) pool and spa sales and service company, I would only consider 2 models. The pumps mentioned above are fine for most, but they all have small baskets which will fill with debris quickly. If it's my backyard, I'd consider the Jandy "Stealth" model or A Jacuzzi Magnum Force model. 1 h.p. as a bare minumum. Consider a 1.5 h.p. model if your pool has 2 skimmers. Both of these pumps have very large baskets and will make your life easier. Trust me, this is a big consideration. Good luck with your shopping.
