I have a question on replacement pump sizing. My 16 year old Aquatools 1HP pump died in September so I need to replace it this Spring.
I could not find an aquatools replacement but I assume I can use another brand. I saw a few 1 HP pumps
Both are 1HP. My filter is an Aquatools AT3115 which states a filtration rate of 20GPM. The pool is small (18' round/ 7800 gallons)
I read the GPM of these pumps are 38 or 43 GPM. I think it said something that reduces based on the size or the hoses, distance, etc. the pump is located close to the pool.
Are these replacement too strong for the size of my sized filter and could possibly damage it?
here are a few photos I took to see scale of filter, etc.
