    Thinking of a VS pump. What size?

    Hey guys, I have a 25K gallon vinyl in ground pool. Right now I have a 1HP Heyward 115v pump/motor with 1.5 inch inlet/outlets. I see the VS seems to be all 2 inch and 230v. Anything that anyone could recommend for me, I don't want to change the voltage. Thanks.
