hi, new guy here. just bought a 15x30x54" Sharkline Matrix pool (I believe about 11,000 gals) and getting all different recommendations from pool sites for proper pump and filter size.
I want a dual speed pump, which would operate at low speed most of the time. Is a 1 hp pump with 1/2hp at low speed be good enough or is a 1.5hp (3/4hp on low) a better option. Also is 100sq ft filter more than enough or do I need 150sq ft? I'd like a bigger filter than minimum required but don't want to overkill or spend extra cash if not needed. Hayward makes a 1hp/100sqft combo and Pentair has a 1.5hp/150sqft combo, both 2speed. I can buy separate filter and pump but doesn't come with the mounting base.
thanks for your help, much appreciated.
