We have an above ground pool that is 27' in diameter and 48" deep, about 17k gallons. Our pump died, it is a Hayward 1.5 hp.

I don't understand the whole "Pump Output (GPM) vs. Total Resistance To Flow (Feet of Head)". What I want is a pump that will turn over the water twice every 24 hours. We plan to run the pump 24 / 7 to see if that helps cut down on the cost of chemical and eases maintenance, I read it will.
I am thinking 1 hp pump in the link above is more than enough just want to make sure since I don't understand the resistance nomenclature.
Could I get away with 3/4 hp if I can find one?
