    Cool Pump upgrade

    Hello everyone. Pool is up and running and working well thanks to the advise of this site. I am thinking about upgrading to a 2 speed pump. Thinking about the Hayward power flow matrix 1 hp 2 speed. I have been told that my pump s way oversized for my filter. Would that pump be a better match for me? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

    Hard to say since you do not provide any details about what pump you currently have.

    I have a 1 hp on my 16000 gallon pool and it's plenty. So a 1 hp on your pool should be fine. Your current pump probably is a bit oversized. Just look for the motor with the same mounting flange and you won't have to touch the plumbing at all.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
