    Need help with Pump suggestions

    Our 1.5hp Challenger pump is on it's last leg. I'm looking to upgrade the pump to a VS pump. I recently had an Omnilogic system installed so the next phase is to add a new pump.

    1.5" plumbing
    30,000 gallon pool with spa (6 jets) spill over
    Heater
    Pressure controlled pool cleaner that uses the pool pump
    Nautilus 48 sq/ft DE Filter
    Hayward Turbo Cell (T-15)

    I've been looking at Pentair or Hayward. I understand it's the Chevy vs Ford comparison so what I'm really looking for is which model would be best for my current setup.

    Thanks so much!

    The Pentair Superflo VS pump is a good one to look at. Here are a couple of places for it.

    Any idea in how that pump will work with the Omnilogic? I talked to Hayward and they said something about having it wired to several High Voltage Relays in order to use the Variable speed but they couldn't tell me for sure if I get full functionality of the Pentair pump.

    Missed that you have Omnilogic. Yes, that's right you can use up to 3 relays to choose speeds 1-3. Each speed can be programmed at the pump for whatever speed you want.

    Hayward was suggesting the Tristar for my setup if I went with their brand pump. They said the Hayward Super pump would be undersized.

    Is the Hayward Super pump and Pentair Superflo pretty much the same pump?
