I am making a portable filter for pool service. Is this an acceptable/recommended filter to be used with a 1hp pump motor? What are the dimensions of filter?
Hi, Curtis. This filter is too small to be used with a 1HP pump for a portable filtration unit. The physical dimensions are 29-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W.
I have a 21 foot above ground pool with roughly 10300 gallons. My pump is a Hayward SP15932S Power-Flo Matrix 1-1/2-Horsepower 2-Speed Above-Ground Pool Pump which I keep mostly running on low. Would this C500 filter be adequate or not? If not, please propose adequate cartridge filter.
Could you give me an estimate of how from your pump is from your main drain. I'm just estimating the flow rate so I know if that filter is able to handle the flow rate from that pump.
WILL THE HAYWARD STAR CLEAR CARTRIDGE FILTER 50 SQ FT, FOR $239.99. FILTER A POOL WITH 10.000 TO 12.000 GAL, OF WATER?
Hi Bill, This filter can filter up to 24,000 gallons in an 8 hour time frame.
I currently have a C 800 Filter and Cartridge, can i switch to a C 500? Pete
Hi Pete, It's not worth going to a smaller filter, I would better if you switch to the C900.
I have a pool spa combo with 15000 gallons. What size cartiridge filter system do you recommend
Hi John, We do not have the proper info to recommend what size filter is needed for your pool. You can follow the steps in our How To: Size a Pool Filter to find out what size filter is needed for your pool.
What size pump is needed for this filter?
The filter is not intended to accommodate more than 50 Gallons Of Water per minute. A 1/2hp Hayward PowerFlo II Single Speed Pump would just be a little higher, but is the lowest I can find.
Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?
As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size. Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size. DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.
Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?
This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.
