I have a 25,000 gallon pool. Which Heyward filters will handle this size pool?

A     Answered on 6/7/2016 by Lennox H.

Hi Michael, This filter has a max flow rate of 130 gpm, it will be great for a 25,000 gallon pool if your pump does not exceed that flow rate.

I have a low flow pressure application. What is the minimum flow rate and pressure required for proper backwashing of a S360T2? Thanks

Hello Ed. I spoke to the Hayward Technical and he said the flow rate for backwash is 72 GPM. He said the pressure varies on the debris built up.
