Response to Pump motor stopped. Looking for a replacement motor. Model is SQ1152, 1.5 hp, type:Regal Beloit epc. Faded, can't read the manufacturer sticker(Century??)...Would like to increase flow. Can I put a 2 hp motor on without causing a problem? There is a spa attached to the pool that uses the same filter(Pentair). This will be my fourth motor in 17 seasons and I live in PA so our pool is only open 3 months a year. Does anyone make a motor that will last? Thanks. Rich
