    Choosing new pump for AG cartridge filter

    Hello!
    My pump died, it was a 2 hp 2 speed. For my 15 X 30 above ground pool I'm discovering that was big and being told that 2 speeds are not common or necessary.

    My question:

    1 or 1.5 horsepower? Isn't it better to have a little more power ?

    And 1 or 2 speed? I didn't use high too often but it was a nice option. Looking back it's funny that I vacuumed the pool with it on high a few times. The brush head kept suctioning to the wall/floor and I could barely get it off. LOL

    Also I read on here a bad review of Haywood. Thoughts on brands?

    Thanks!!

    Are you looking for a pump or a pump/filter combo?
    I would certainly stick with a 2-speed, but you only need a 1HP ... many members like the Power-flo Matrix.

    Any of the major brands are fine ... Hayward, Pentair, Jandy, etc

    Please add this to your signature:
    Volume of pool
    make/model/size of filter
    make/model/size of pump (when you get one)
