    did i buy the appropriate pump?

    hi all, i have a 38,000 litre fibreglass saltwater pool. My sand filter is hayward s244t, my pump is hayward super II pump 1hp.
    Is this a good 'balance?'
    Reason i ask is because I've got some constant sand at the bottom of my pool. It's not from backwashing, it's a little bit everyday building up.
    I think it's either a broken lateral, or a spider gasket needing replacement?

    The pump is a bit of overkill for your setup assuming you have no water features and may not be the most economical choice, but should work ok
    Indoor 20x40 35,000 gallon vinyl pool with 1.5 HP 2 speed Jandy FloPro pump, Hayward EC75 Perflex DE filter, 11 4x12 Techno-Solis solar panels w/ Aquasolar controller, Aquabot Turbo T Robot Cleaner. Also LMI metering chlorine dispenser pump and HotSpring Jetsetter
