Dolphin Aqua Sea S 7900. Choose the version with type-3 seals.

Sorry but you are suggesting a pump that will do 55' of head and pumps 7800 GPM and uses who knows 400W 24/7 ?

If t'were me I'd replace all that hard PVC with flex, ideally 1 1/2", and then go with something like the panworld 200 (same as the Blueline 70 if memory serves). Would give you something like 1,200 gph, more than enough.

I agree, I use a panworld 200 on similar setup only I use vinyl return tubing
