Hi - We have owned our home for 1 year and are first time pool owners. Our equipment is quite old, maybe original from 1990, but was working until recently. Our pump ended up breaking so we had a refurbished newer one installed. It has more power than our old one, but after using our sweep (hayward ultra vac) the sweep would no longer work (we later found a rock stuck in the turning hose area, it worked for a day or so after, but shortly after stopped working. It was very old so we want to replace it with "The Pool Cleaner" sweep once our replaster is complete (replaster is in process). Also since the sweep stopped working we were manually vacuuming the bottom every few days. When we did sometimes we would see the vacuumed particles coming through the pool jets back into the pool. I wasn't sure if it was the filters being old or the pump being too strong for the filter to keep up.
What I'm wondering is
1- Is the pump we have ok to run a spa and pool?
2- because the HP was increased w/ the new pump is our filter large enough to take this pump on? Should we get a new larger filter? Trying not to have to buy a whole new pool system at once so wanted to check with the experts. We will be buying new filter cartridges prior to our replaster startup which may be part of why I think the Pump VS Filter is not compatible.
Pump we have: AO Smith 1HP, but on the sticker it says HP= 1.65 A.O. Smith 1.0 HP Motor EE (B864SE) - QC1102 - INYOPools.com
Filter we have: Pentail Clean & Clear plus: specs below image
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
Pool: SQ FT 550 - 19,000 gallon free form pool & spa
