The original 10 yr. old Dura-glass pump is still going strong (a little noisy) but I know it's going to die soon so I want to be ready when it happens. I want to stay with a sta-rite pump to make plumbing easy and I'm happy with the longevity of my old pump.
Do I have the right size pump?
Original Pump: Dura-glass pump 1hp w/ 1.65 SF
Here's the specs:
20 x 40 - 34,000 gal. vinyl liner inground pool. One skimmer, one main drain, three returns, equipment 20' from pool, all plumbing 1 1/2". 300lb. sand filter w/ 63 gal/min max. flow rate. 400 sq. ft Helicoil solar panels 15' up from equipment. Aquarite SWG. Use dolphin primarily for cleaning. Clean filter pressure reading = 16 PSI w/ solar 21 PSI
Thanks for your input!
