Looking to replace my current pump (AO Smith 3/4 HP, 1.67 SF) with a Pentair SuperFlo VS (P/N 342000). Currently run pump 4 hrs a day and water clarity is fine.
With the increased HP, is there any risk of damage to my other equipment?
FNS Plus 48 filter says OK to 96GPM.
The suction and return lines are copper, maybe 1.5"... these seem to be limited to 43 GPM. This seems to be an issue with a larger pump?
Not sure about the skimmer (U3) / main drain?
Would the new VS pump be ok? Maybe run full speed to prime only then back off? Install flow meter and set lower than 43 GPM?
