Call your pump supplier and have them match up a pump to your specs.

Ayuh,......
You are using an Antifreeze solution,+ Not pure water, Correct,..??
If So,.....
An Iron pump should be fine....

I don't know how the Sizing is figured, as Heat Pumps are rarely used up here where it gets Really Cold......
Although I am very curious about your system, as I own a couple of houses on a river,+ am considering a Geothermal system for them in the future......
Finding Info about Heatpumps up in this country is Tough, 'cause there just Aren't any of them around.......
