Response to Hello Glenn-When upgrading the motor size you have to take a couple things into consideration. The first would be whether or not your filter can handle the additional flow rate by the higher HP. The second being that you will need to change the impeller and possibly diffuser on the pump. The only advantage to going to a higher HP would be to increase the waterflow. But keep in mind it will use more energy as well.
