    Hey Chris. Happy Good Friday to you.

    1. You can just replace just the filter. No use replacing a perfectly good pump.

    2. That's a very subjective question. You could always go back with the same model or you could change to a cartridge or D.E. filter if you prefer.
    Having said that, the 250L is a good size for your pool.

    Disclaimer: my opinion only!: I would replace the sand filter with either the exact same model or a 200SF cartridge filter. Since Hayward is sold and supported where you are, I'd seriously consider them. Down here near Mobile, Pentair is more prevalent so that's what I have and what I'd use again.
