Franklin bought out Jacuzzi. It is an old Jacuzzi design. It is as good as any, but no better than the others either. The Franklin motor is about the best you can do, even though they have also been cheapened up as much as possible. Pumps use to be designed to fail in an average of 7 years. The even more cheapened up versions I see at the big box stores were probably designed to last ½ that long. The best you can do with any pump is limit the amount of cycling on and off, which is the biggest killer of pumps. Since there are now things available like the Cycle Stop Valve, pump companies have had to cheapen their pumps even more to stay within their planned obsolescence timelines.
