Is this a self priming pump that can be used by running the hoses over the top of an 1,100 gallon above ground?
Matt, No this is not a self-priming pump and it will not work properly by running the hose over the top of a pool. No above ground pool pumps are going to be self-priming they will need to be gravity fed water.
I have a 24" round pool X 52 high. would this pump and filter work, or is it to big?
Hi David, This unit is slightly larger than what you need but will provide adequate water flow and filtration for your pool.
what size Hayward sand filter for our 18' round 4' deep pool
Hi Bill, This unit is adequate for just water circulation. If you want a system that can operate an automatic pool cleaner then I would recommend a 16" or 19" package.

Hi, The SP1510Z1XBC pump can be used with a 16" sand filter or larger.
i have a 15 ft above ground ground pool, need a filter system used if possible pool is old s
Bob, I would recommend at least a 16" tank. We have one on clearance here: http://www.inyopools.com/Products/07501352062843.htm
I have a 24 ' above ground x 54" deep pool, I need a new pump/ sand filter combo, what do you recommend that will last, Thanks
This filter system would be a little too small for your pool. I would suggest the Hayward filtration system which comes with an 18" Sand Filter & 1 HP Pump.
What size pump motor comes with this filter?
This motor is considered to be a 40 galllon per minute motor. Its not cosidered a rated any horse power yet it's own specified flow rating and fairly common with above ground pool pumps.
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.
