I've confirmed that my pool pump is dead. Since it's fairly aged (maybe even older than we think) we've decided to go ahead and get a new pump rather than have it repaired.
According to some articles I've read is that we can use an above ground pump on our inground pool since it is fairly small (8500 gallons). Here's an example of such an article:
Aboveground filter systems and small inground pools (under 10,000 gals) should use a Low Head pump like a Maxim, or Dynamo or Power-Flo.
Is this recommendation correct? I would love to go with an AG pump since it is about $100 cheaper for the same HP. The water line is slightly above where our pump is situated.
Also, my old pump was a 1 HP pump. Should I get a 1 HP pump again or go for a 3/4 HP since my pool is on the smaller side?
