This is my second year with my pool and I'm happy to say I think I've finally got the water chemistry figured out! :P
Now my pump is not sounding so good and I am going to replace it. It is really old. A friend gave it to me. My question is about what brand and hp pump to get. The current pump is 2.5 hp but that seems big and unnecessary for my pool. I have an oval 18x33. I am using a sand filter but am just replacing the pump. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. There are so many different brands and I feel lost. Also, the current pump is a 2 speed. Do I need a 2 speed or is 1 speed fine?
