    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Note I merged your threads, please to not post duplicate questions.

    Usually a pump/filter combo are not the best solution since the filters are too small and the pump may be too big.

    Given your location and pool size, I would suggest around a 24" diameter sand filter.
    For the pump, look for a 1HP 2-speed .. like the Power-flo Matrix that many members seem to like.
