Ok, my 1.5hp motor on my Hayward Superpump died. After asking some questions on here I have determined a few things:
My old motor is a single speed 1.5hp with a SF of 1.3
I want a dual speed motor
I am having my electrical switched over to 230v so I can utilize a dual speed pump
I have about 80' of skimmer lines (2 skimmers)
I have about 50' of line to my drain
I have 4 returns
I have a Hayward S244T filter with 50 psi working pressure
The guy at Inyo pools says I need a 2 1/2 or 3 hp motor! The pool seemed to run okay with the 1.5 hp motor last year, although it was our first year in this home so we have nothing to compare to.
What size motor do I REALLY need for my set up?
Thanks for your help!
