I have a 10,500 gallon in ground play pool that includes 500 gallon spa over flowing into the pool. What size cartridge filter would you recommend to replace my DE 20 year old filter. My pool pump is a 2 hp challenger brand pump.

A     Answered on 2/1/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

I need to know the distance in feet from the pump to the pool's skimmer(s) so I can calculate the flow rate. This will let me know what size filter you need based on the flow rate.
