When matching pumps always use AMPERAGE rather than Horsepower. Many times the labeled Horsepower does not accurately represent actual horsepower.

Would this be a good pump to use for some water features that are going to require like 130 GPM? I don't understand the disadvantage of this pump, it seems to deliver a ton of output even at a relatively high head. Why is it called a "spa pump"?
Yes, depending on the total feet of head, this pump would be more than sufficient. This is considered a spa pump because it produces high HP and pressure, perfect for spa jets. Additionally it has side discharge ports which are not compatible with most pool systems. The last thing is that this pump is a little smaller and take up less space so it can fit inside of certain spa spaces.
