Looks like it's time for a new pool pump; please advise!


I need to replace my current 3/4hp pool pump, which is dying but the CA1100 filter cartridge is new in my 15x30 in ground pool with built in over-flow spa (spa blower not currently working).

I'm not sure if I did these #'s correct but I'm need to figure which pool pump & filter I need for the following:

Gallons of Water in Pool 15,187.5 {15x30 x 4.5 avg depth x 7.5 = 15,187.5}

Gallons per hour (GPH) To clean all the water in your pool in 8 hours. 1898.4 {15.187.5 / 8 = 1898.4}

Gallons per minute (GPM) Divide your GPH by 60 minutes. 31.64 {1,898.4 / 60 = 31.64}

Average Feet of Head 26.6' {15' + 45' + 20' = 80' / 3 = 26.6'}
Skimmer 1: 5' + 10' = 15'
Skimmer 2: 5' + 40' = 45' (spa)
Main Drain: 10' + 10' = 20'

I have received the following quotes from local pool guys:

QUOTE 1: (many options)
"First two numbers are pump and filter combined 1hp or 1.5hp/C1750 Filter, then you have filter only with any of the three VS pumps (Variable speed) code compliant. Then there is the Salt generator Hayward is the best in my opinion/priced 40,000 gallon, bigger the system the longer the cell will last.

All these prices are installed any hardware & materials like valves and whip to perform the labor necessary for the completion of the following work needed, tax included.

Hayward MaxFlo Pool pump and Hayward C1750 filter combo: 1hp. $1025.55/1.5hp. $1160.55
Hayward SuperII Pool pump and Hayward C1750 filter combo: 1hp. $1215.75/1.5hp. $1325.60

C1750 Only: $565.60

Pentair IntelaPro VS pump only: $1545.30
Horner Sunrunner VS pump only: $1120.75
Zodiac FloPro VS pump only: $1685.00
Hayward AquaRite salt generator 40,000gal.: $1510.50

QUOTE 2: (2 options)

Hayward MaxFlo Pool pump 3/4hp. $335 + $85/hr labor
Hayward MaxFlo Pool pump 1hp. $353 + $85/hr labor and Hayward C2000 filter $355 + $85/hr labor.

All thoughts and advice are greatly appreciated, thank you!

No problem...I just don't know what size pump & filter are appropriate for the size of my pool. I was quoted anywhere from 3/4hp with no filter upgrade to 1.5hp to Variable Speed with filter upgrades from C1750 to C2000 and systems with salt. I'm also looking for experiences with the different makes & models over time.

FWIW, I'm looking for an Automatic Pool Cleaner to add to the system as well. THANKS!
