    Pump size

    Hi all,
    I had an 18x52 AGP installed last aug. It came with a 19 in
    sand filter and a 1 1/2 hp pump. (Hayward) Other then using
    elec does anyone see an issue with this set up?
    Thanks
    Bill

    No, very happy with everything so far. Just reading some of
    the sig lines and see pools with 20 or 30,000 gal and a 1hp
    pump. Just checking as I've only got about 8400 gal of water,
    and I'm new to all this.

    You really can't compare pumps by just the label HP. IG pumps tend to be much larger than AG pumps of the same HP. If everything is ok I wouldn't worry to much about it.
