I need some advice and input. Last year I did the Baquacil switch to BBB. And I kept my Baquacil branded pump and cartridge filter combo that come with the pool from Rec. Warehouse. I did put a new cartridge in after the switch but now I want to switch to a sand filter. Had a Hayward sand filter on our old pool and I like the maintenance on the much better than the cartridge.
The problem I’m having is trying to figure out what sand filter size will work best the pump. I can’t find any information what the GMP on the pump. Below are the current pump/ cartridge filter specs:
*Filter: Waterway Pro Clean PCCF-200
*Pump: Waterway (Baquacil) PB2250-6P (2.5hp, 2 Speed)
From what I can tell Waterway doesn’t even offer a 2.5hp pump/ cartridge kit, at least not in their 2009 catalog.
It’s a little confusing the Pump has a sticker all by itself that says “2.5hp” but the AO-Smith tag on the motor (BN50) says 1.5 hp. So which one is correct?
