I need to give up on the ES8500s.

Needs to be 5 or more year warranty. 2" in & out. 4000-4500 gph.
Plugs into standard usa outlet.

I don't care about saving money on running cost or it being quiet.

Want to be able to simply disconnect my current pumps and pop on the new ones. No extra parts to make it fit.


Will this pump work?
Sequence 4200SEQ12

Since I always lower the flow to 4-4500, I might as well stick to that number on a set flow pump.

I no longer care much about price, I need it to last and not trouble me endlessly like the ES that has zero warranty.

Thanks!

Links to the make/model would be very helpful. As they all look the same to me and idk if I found the correct pump or not.

For it to be plug and play no plumbing work that's usually only the same replacingbthe same.
But there shouldn't be too much hassle.
I have a Cartesian 2 performance pro 1hp pump 7 years running now with a little down time each winter but I do not shut down November to April I'm more February to March. But to my knowledge they do not have dialable pumps.

As long as the in and out is 2", it should be plug n play, no? Sure, I may have to adjust distances or placements of pipes, but that's easy. None of it is permanently placed.

Will this work to make the 1.5" discharge fit my 2" piping?


The 2" pump is nearly $200 more and more gph, so I don't want it.

Enlarging your output sizing is ok but it will reduce the pressure that comes out . and you'll need to keep in mind threaded or slip

That's fine. I have gravity filters, they cannot handle more than 4-4500gph without all new bins, rubbers and connectors to spill out from.
Guess I'll have to go look what mine currently are. Pretty sure pump has threads. So, I guess the posted one won't work.
