    Egg, welcome to TFP!!

    Upgrading the filter won't hurt and can improve filtration and reduce the frequency of cleaning the filter. 1 hp sounds like plenty for the pool because you're not using the filter pump to run the water features nor spa For ~$100 I would get the 6020.

    I hope you get to swim in the pool soon
