Hello all, noob here. I searched the forums, but I didn't find anything with a similar subject matter.
I have a 25,000 gallon double bean in-ground pool with a 1.5hp whisperflo pump. The motor has gone bad, and I was wondering if anyone knew whether it would work to replace a 1.5hp motor with a 1hp motor. (To make a long story short, my idiot ex-stepfather bought too big of a pump for our sand filter in the first place). In the owner's manual it lists a 1hp replacement pump, but I'm not sure if the manual was a 'one size fits all' manual, or equipment specific.
We just pulled the cover off and we were hoping to have the pool ready for a graduation party next Sunday. I highly doubt we will make that deadline, but you never know.
Thanks in advance....
