What kind of hoses would I use with this filter?
Hi. The hoses, adapters, and clamps are included with this package.
what pump do you recommend for a 18x33x52?
If you are looking for a pump and filter combo for an 18' x 33' above ground pool then this is the system I would suggest. If you just need a pump then I would suggest the Hayward Matrix 1.5 HP Pump
does filter run all the time
No, it depends on the season, climate and needed hours to turnover the water, On average pool pumps run between 6-8 hours a day between spring to fall.
i have a 16' x 32' oval, 16,000 gal. above pool. is this Hayward Pump & Filter S180T Filter W/ 1.5 HP Matrix Pump & Timer big enough for my pool?
Yes both the filtration and circulation rating on that system is sufficient for your pool.
I have a 24' round 52" above ground swimming pool, will the Hayward S180T93SFT be adequate?
Yes, the S180T93SFT would be sufficient for your size swimming pool.
How often do I have to replace the sand in my filter? What is normal operating pressure?
On a "fresh start-up" a filter would operate anywhere between 10-20 psi. As a general rule of thumb you only want to backwash when the pressure increases 8-10 psi. You want to make certain that the pump is being turned off whenever you move the handle on the valve. Once backwashing is complete (3-5 minutes), you can switch to the rinse option to re-settle the sand bed. Sand will typically last 5-7 years. Premature backwashing will wear down the size of the sand which will cause difficulties such as cloudy water and higher operating pressures.
When should I change the sand in my filter?
You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
What is the flow rating for this filter? Are the connections 1 1/2" or 2" and is it a 2 speed pump?
The designed flow rating for the S180T filter is 35 GPM the pump and filter both have 1.5" connections and this is a single speed pump
What is the voltage on this unit? How long is the manufactures warranty? If the system requires repairs during warranty, what do I do?
This pump runs on 115V power. This unit comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty. If the pump needed repair, you would call Hayward directly and they would put you in touch with a warranty service station in your area.
