Response to Hi, Paul. You can upgrade to a 3 hp motor reusing your existing impeller and diffuser. However, if you want to increase water flow, you will have to change your impeller and diffuser after confirming if your filter, plumbing, and system is sufficient. To determine that you will have to calculate the Total Dynamic Head (TDH) of your pool, then use the pump performance curve to determine the flow.
