    They are all good and common brands of equipment, but I don't know specifically about the models.

    You could save quite a bit on electricity by getting a smaller pump and/or a two speed pump. A 3/4 HP full rated or 1 HP up rated pump would be plenty since you don't have any water features (spa, waterfall, fountain, etc).
