    Replacing my pump

    Hi everyone,
    I just had my pump go out. It a Hayward super pump 1.5hp prob around 20yrs old. I have 1.5inch lines and a pressure of 18psi. My pool size is 20x40 w average depth of 5-5.5ft. 30-35,000 gallons I think.? My question is to which pump would be a better suite for replacement. I'm looking at the pentair superflo 1in and 1.5in. My budget is less than 500$ and was wondering if these were my best choices for the price and efficiency? I would like to keep the electric bill down as much as possible so if I could get by with a 1hp that would be great. I figured the superflow 1hp would have equal or greater flow than the old 1.5hp hayward.
    Thanks Matt

    The Superflo 1hp would work good on your pool and it'd be even better if you'd go with a 2-speed.
