Hi, I've posted a previous thread which included the question in the subject line above:
but thought it might work better to post the question with its own subject line.
Our existing pump is a Krystal Kleer model #51 (Intex pump/filter combo), looks like this newer model:
From what I find online, this is described as a 1/2 horsepower pump. It is also described as moving 2500 gph (probably an exaggeration of what it does in real life).
Is this size pump too small for an 18" sand filter?
I'm looking at this Hayward filter:
I realize there would be plumbing complexities in connecting the pump to the sand filter, but that's not really my question at the moment.
