Response to I currently own this pump, which is probably oversized for my 16x32 oval above ground pool. I believe the cool capacity is around 15000-16000 gallons. I need to purchase a new sand filter and I'm looking at the Hayward S180T. With only about 12' of head, however, it seems I would only be able to run the pump in the low RPM setting. Would this work? I currently need to use the high setting for vacuuming and am afraid I will not have enough suction on the low setting. My vacuum hose is 40 feet.
