Hello! I have a +-30,000 IG L shaped pool to which I am adding solar heating. I have 1 1/2 plumbing with 2 skimmers, drain and 5 returns. The heating pads are on a pergola 8 ft away from the pump and about 16' above the pump. I will be dry fitting and plumbing all but the actual connections to the system today.
I currently have an AO Smith b228se 1HP motor that sounds like it is on its last leg. Do you guys think I should I replace it with a USQ1152 1 1/2HP SF 1.1 motor or just stick with the 1hp replacement USQ1102 ? Any advice would be much appreciated.
