    need new pump

    I have a 15x30 AGP, the pump went out. I have a 2 speed 2hp pump with a 120' cartridge filter. Do I need another 2hp 2 speed pump or could I go 1.5hp 2 speed? What do you think I need?

    Assuming you don't have a fountain or solar heat or any other water features you will be fine with a smaller pump. I would go all the way down to a 1 HP two speed, but a 1 1/2 HP two speed is alright.

    I don't have a fountain or solar heater, the only time I use high speed is when I vacuum the pool.
