My pump has been leaking like crazy and the motor began smoking last night so I think its time for a replacement. Changed gaskets and seals, I think I have a cracked housing.
Current pump = Hayward Super Pump II 1.5 HP (I believe it has 1.5" piping, but the specs on this motor say 2", I'll have to check when I get home)
Current filter = Hayward S244T Sand Filter
Number of Skimmers = 1
Number of returns = 5
The equipment pad sits about 1-2 feet above water level and is about 50 feet away from the skimmer.
Is my current setup too much or would I be able to go for a regular Super Pump with less HP? Please take into account I'm quite the newbie with pools, first year owning one.
Any input is appreciated!
