My pool pump died and I need to replace it. I currently have a 2 HP pump and my pool is a 10,000 gallon pool. Here in Houston I have been running my pump on a timer 12 hours per day. I was debating if I can buy a .75 HP or 1 HP pump and run it 24 hours a day which would be the same electricity or less but I also feel I would save money on chemicals by having 24 hour circulation. I want to know your thoughts along with any pros or cons. Also if you agree with switching to a lower horsepower pump would .75 HP be enough? I appreciate any response and I apologize for not looking in this forum to see if my question was already posted.
