Default Varialble speed pump

I'm thinking about buying a new variable speed pump. (http://www.pentairpoo
l.com/pool-pro/products/product.php?idv) My thinking is that I can set
it to move less water at night, saving electricity and more when I'm out th
ere enjoying the pond. Any opinions?

Hi Joe,

Interesting concept. Not sure exactly which pump I should click on or if
the WhisperFlo pictured was it?

Sounds good if your idea of slow isn't starving the filter or fish of O2.

I use 2 pumps, one for the season, and one for winter, but I'm sure
plugging them in and out is what you're trying to avoid. ~ jan
