Looking for pump recommendation. My system has the following characteristics:

8000 gallons
Pool/Spa with a waterfall
Spa has 4 jets
Current pump is an old 2.25HP Hayward
Pipes are 2"

This is a small pool and it is automated to be ran as Spa Mode (water circulates only in the spa) or Pool Mode (waterfall - water circulates and overflow the spa into the pool and also a small parts circulates in the pool).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

73,

The brand and type of automation will often dictate the pump that is needed...

Thanks,

Jim R.
Thanks for your replies. By automation meant that there is a pneumatic push switch that allow to switch between spa mode or pool/waterfall mode.

I did built my own automation system in top of that using sonoff devices and a raspberry pi running OpenHab so I can control it from a phone or tablet.
