    Pump Questions

    I am looking into getting an 18x33 oval AGP. It appears that the recommended pump will be in the 1/2 hp range. Will that be strong enough to vacuum the pool (sand filter)? Is a two speed pump in that size a feasible alternative?
    27' AGP with 6' deep end (AquaLeader); 3/4 hp, 2 speed pump (Pentair); 22" sand filter (Pentair Sand Dollar); 2 4x20 Solar Bear panels with Goldline control valve

    We should really know how many pounds of sand the filter will hold to size it properly...
