I have a doughboy pool with the doughboy filter and 1hp pump. My pump went bad and I need to buy a new one. I don't want another Doughboy pump. The pump it has is a 1hp pump single speed.
Now my fiter ratings are:
Filtering surface 1.4 sq ft
Max Pressure 50psi
130lbs of sand
Bed depth 12"
It doesnt say anything on it about the flow rate.
Now my questions are this. I dont know what pump to get, I know I should get a 1hp but, should I get a 2 speed pump. Is that an upgrade I should go to and why should I have 2 speeds?
I guess I dont know why I should have 2 speeds, please explain.
Also my pool that I am using it on is in my signature.
