    Need suggestions for a new Pump for Inground pool

    Hi,
    The original Hayward Superpump in my pool has a cracked case and a slight leak when under pressure. I'm hoping
    to get some recommendations from folks on the board for a replacement. My thought is to replace it before closing
    the pool this year so its set to go in the spring.

    Here are my specs:

    Location Central NJ.
    23,000 Gallon Inground Vinyl Pool
    Leaky Hayward Superpump with 1.5 HP 230 Volt motor
    2 incoming lines (1 skimmer, 1 main drain)
    Triton II model 60 filter
    1 1/2 inch plumbing
    Stayrite Pool Heater
    Hayward inline automatic clorinator after heater.
    3 Return lines (1 was converted from the automatic cleaner that I no longer use)

    Any help on sizing and where to purchase is greatly appreciated.
    12 X 24 Oval Pool, AG, Vinyl, 52" inch deep
    Sand Filter, 1 HP motor Waterway Model ?? OF flowrate

    What do you use for a cleaner?
    Any water features?
    Solar?

    Given just what you have written a 1HP is likely plenty ... even 3/4HP is probably sufficient given that you did not list any high flow rate requirements.

    A 2-speed would also save you more money on electricity by running on low most of the time.

    Since you have 230V at the motor ... the 1HP 2-speed Superflo might work well for you.

    Jason,
    For a cleaner, I use the old fashion manual vacuum (me...). No water features or solar, Just the Stayrite gas pool heater.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    I aggree with JB, a 1hp 2-speed Superflo would be a good replacement.
