    Replacement Pump For 2 inch plumbing small inground pool?

    Should I buy this? It has good reviews and is only $179.99 including shipping.

    Amazon.com : Harris H1572748 ProForce 1.5 HP Inground Pool Pump 115/230V : Patio, Lawn Garden


    This is my current pump:

    Hayward SP3010X15AZ Super II 1-1/2-Horsepower Pool Pump

    What is the TFP recommendation for a small inground pool with 2 inch pipes?

    The pipe size really doesn't drive pump size. But if you have a spa or water volume water feature, that could. If you have neither, then get the smallest pump possible and save on energy costs. Those two pumps are fairly large and probably way more than what you need. At least go for the smaller Harris (1 HP) although that is probably more than you need too.

    A two speed though costs more up front but would save more on energy costs down the road.
