I recently purchased and installed a 22in. Hayward Pro Series Sand Pool Filter as replacement for my old 24in filter (specs below). My 22in. sand filter is perfect for my pool as it is only 18K gallons. However, I failed to realize that my pool pump is 1-HP. I was told the most efficient pump for my filter is 3/4 HP. I was wondering if this is going to cause any problems that my pump is too big for my filter, or is this absolutely fine? I have already installed the filter, but if need be, I think I can still return it...but it will be a pain to remove all of the sand, and leaving my pool unfiltered for another week...Anyway feedback would be greatly appreciated!!
Effective filtration rate: 2.64ft
Design Flow Rate: 52 GPM
Turnover: 29,760 gallons in 8 hours
