Ok ... That dreaded time has come to buy a new pump!!! ... I have made some changes to my plumbing since the pump was orginally installed ... My main question is how much horsepower can I get away with!!!
Here are some details:
I only have an IG Spa ... Currently running 8 jets ... Orginally it was plumbed with 2" Suction and return, with 6 sets, so they sold me a 2HP pump ... When the plumbing was redone last year, they made a few changes ...
- I have 2" suction line inside the spa, it runs about 6' then converts to 2.5" all the way back to the pump about 25'
- I have a 2.5" return line that runs from the pump to the jets where it converts down to 1.5"
Can I get away with with using a 2.5HP pump???? Would I see a difference in the waterflow between the 2HP and the 2.5HP??
