Unfortunately I don't have enough information to legitimately answerthis question.

Can you run a pump and other items off of solar - yes. The bestway to do this is to bring in an expert that can find the most efficientpool pump for your situation and then design the size of the panels based onhow often it needs to run.

You may also consider a salt chlorinator whichcan help you eliminate the need for chemicals.
