    Re: need help decideing which pump

    Either one will work - the common response here is that you should get as large a filter as you can afford / fit in. 2 Speed motor on both pumps is a wash and a plus, although we would also say that you really don't need 1.5 HP - a 1 HP (or smaller) 2 speed would be plenty.

    Just ensure that you have "enough" electric power to run the pump, with enough wire to carry it with at least 12 guage wire.

    The SD-60 unit is the right one for your pool. The 22" Waterway is too small. It only holds 150 lbs of sand.

    Those pumps looked like they were 120V pumps - I know the Pentair Dynamo is .
