The house I bought a few years back has an old pool that I am finally getting around to R&R.
So after a brief attempt at searching I have a question about my pump size.
First background info:
22k in ground with 1.5k spa built in 1978.
2HP pump & 36 sq.ft. DE filter (really old kind with like 20 bolts to unscrew)
Master Supply "Turbo-Clean" system
1.5" metal pipe.
All equipment is original except the pump (original pump was 2 HP)
I will be replacing all of the equipment and really do not see why the pump is sized so large unless it has something to do with the Turbo-Clean system.
The manufacturer of the system (Master Supply) has not been able to give me any recommendations on what size pump is required to drive the system and "pop-up" the heads on the bottom of the pool.
With 1.5" pipe and I believe 26' of head I should be able to downsize the pump.
Does anybody have any experience with these systems or insight into the solution?
