You may do well to change over to an alternating duplex system. It will give you a back up and an additional pump for higher capacity...

The down side to a larger pump is that continuous running is more desirable for motor life over frequent starts.

Nestor - thank you for taking the time to explain the performance curve. It's easy to follow and very informative.
