Hi, I was considering a new Hayward VS superpump but, talking with pool store (I know...) they did NOT recommend it for my pool.
Do I need to scale up to a real pump? (3hp Pentair VS)
Here are the details:
Approx 11,000gal pool including small spa spillover (4 jets)
Single story solar but, 8 (4x8) panels with about 30ft run length total
Today, I have Hayward Superpump 1hp which works OK
2" skimmer 30ft length and another 2" intake split between spa and main drain (20 and 30ft)
1 1/2 pump inlet on superpump to filter
4 jets (30ft) and 2- pool return (20ft and 40ft) all 1 1/2" pvc.
They said I would be sorry if I undersize with the water features?
Im asking for your expert opinions!
I tried to size pump to match existing flow rates but, am I missing something before an expensive purchase?
