Default Hydromatic SKV50 Performance Data

I was looking to replace my current Hydromatic SKV50 pump and noticed that the performance data is way different than many other pumps:

GPH @ 10': 9480
GPH @ 15': 6000

Other 1/2 HP Pumps

Liberty LE51A
GPH @ 10': 6720
GPH @ 15': 5400

GPH @ 10': 4680
GPH @ 15': 3960

Zoeller M267
GPH @ 10': 5340
GPH @ 15': 3000

Motor RPMs seem to all be the same. Could it be the size of the impeller that contributes to the large differences? How is it that the Hydromatic is 2000 more GPH?

I'm looking for a replacement pump for a Bathroom w/ toilet/shower/sink, Washer, and Wet Bar Sink. Should I stick with the Hydromatic, or would I be ok with the Liberty?

I've used hydromatic sump pumps and I've never had to ever replace one. In my opinion hydromatic is a solid choice. You get what you pay for and from what I know hydromatic pumps are pretty pricey.
If you don't learn something new everyday at work, it's not even worth going.
