I am a brand new 18 x 48" intex pool owner and had a few questions regarding possiblw pumps and filters for this size pool containing about 7000 gallons. I am not impressed with initial 1500gph pump that is supplied with the pool and would like to upgrade to better equipment. Id like a sand filter, larger pump and eventually a SWG. I have been looking at a few of the Hayward sand pump combos listed here

Is a 1 1/2 hp motor too large for my pool? Can i make it work somehow? Will it work with a SWG? I would like to upgrade to a larger more permanent pool in the next summer or two and want to carry that equipmemt over. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
