Response to I need a replacement for my Hayward sp3400vsp. I have just under 12,000 gallons, with about 40’ head and a small waterfall. The original pump was a 1 hp single speed, then the prior home owner installed the Hayward. Do I need a 2 hp VS pump (2.7 THP), or can I downsize based on the above information?
