Ok. So I just moved into my house last year. Ran the pool all summer and it was ok last year. I just opened it up this weekend and seems the pump is dead. I sounds awful and doesn't do anything besides make some noise. Last year the suction sucked (no pun intended). So I had in the back of my mind that I should think about upgrading the filter/pump. In a previous post someone told me that my filter was prob not big enough for the pool. My current filter is a Heyward EC65 with a 1 HP pump hooked up to it. I'm not really sure what to do. Should I look for a better pump (1.5 HP, 2HP?) and keep my current filter? Replace them both? I'm not sure how many gallons my pool is, so i'll post a pic (from before i opened it) and if you can give me an estimate, that would be cool too. Its 8 foot in the deep end and measures 18'x40'
Any advice would be very much appreciated!
