    Smile TFP Newbie, Long Time "Family Pool Guy"

    Greetings everyone!

    I was hoping to reach out to other pool caretakers because I'm getting tired of feeling like I have no idea what I am doing. The pool is crystal clear and under control for the time being.

    I have all the known "facts" about the pool stated below in the signature.

    I was wondering about the pump and filter system.

    I took pictures of both the motor label and the label that's on the thing with the filters inside of it. I sound a bit dimwitted but that's okay, I'm here to learn haha. My blondness shines through.

    Anyway here are the pictures, I was wondering if anyone could give me insight on just what the heck these labels are trying to tell me? I figure the more reference points I have the more I can get out of this forum in keeping the pool in shape and/or addressing any future issues.

    Hi, welcome to TFP! You have a 2 hp pump and a Pac Fab MA 160 cartridge filter. Pump is a bit big for a pool your size, but as long as it is working fine there is no reason to change anything.
