After digging into the equipment in my pool room I think to start out with getting this pool ownership trouble free I'll be best served starting with a new pump and filter instead of a restoration project. I have enough restoration to do with the rest of the pool area in general. In addition to the pool their is a spa that is about 75" x 37" x 39" deep with 2 jets. The current pump is 1 HP 110v. It functions but would like to start new and go with something more efficient. On quick glance of the electrical panel I could go with 120 or 240v. I'm thinking I'd like to stick with a sand filter. The most economical filter media I can get is Vitroclean crushed glass through my work that uses it for large industrial water treatment projects.
If I decide to use the spa and have a single pump/heater setup I'm guessing I would be running the setup on either the pool or spa individually and never both at the same time.
I would greatly appreciate any recommendations for a new pump and filter. I'm looking forward to getting this pool ready for the summer!
