Hi, Is the filtering compound sand or glass?
Hi, David. This filter requires sand as the media. You can also use alternate media Zeo Sand or Glass.
Which do you recommend the Pentair SA60 or the Hayward S244T. and is Dual speed an option and is that necessary?
Hi. Between the two model, I will recommend the S244T filter. It has a higher effective filtration area than the SD-60 filter. A dual speed pump can be used with that model to save on energy consumption.
is this filter compatible with a 1hp superflo
Hi, Mike. Yes, if the 1 HP Superflo Pump does not exceed 60 GPM.
My below ground 25000 gallon pool is leaking water somewhere. i paid a company 350 to find the leak and get it repaired. the company said there was no leak in the lines but i need to replace the multi post . what is the multi-post? the guy quoted 450 for labor and cost of the multi post. I have a pentair tagelus TA 60/60D. I haven't heard from the guy for over 2 weeks. should i get another company involved?
Hello Phil- OK the first question about the vacuum hose. This is NOT the correct replacement for your pool cleaner. The correct hose comes in 4ft sections like the Generic 4' Automatic Pool Vac Hose - White - 19-752. The second question, it seems like the "guy" was referring to what is called a Multiport Valve. Here is a link to the Pentair Tagelus Fiberglass Sand Filter Parts diagram. This list mentions a few different valve models depending on if you have a clamp on or screw on style. If there was a leak happening in this area, it would be noticeable around the top of the filter valve. You may need a second opinion.
My Pentair SD-60 is 6 years old and has started pumping sand back into the pool. Started last month and its getting worse, vacuumed almost 3 buckets today and that is only 1 week from last vacuum and backflush. I used the Zeosand. Thanks for any help
Hello Jim I would check your laterals and replace your pipe system. Standpipe Assembly, Sd60 After 10-2004 (152227) there were "how to" http://www.inyopools.com/HowToPage/how_to_replace_a_lateral_in_a_pool_sand_filter.aspx
Is this the right size filter for a 25000 gallon in-ground pool?
Hi, This filter can be used to filter a 25,000 gallon pool in an 8 hour time frame. When sizing a filter to a pool you will also have to take the flow rate of the pump into consideration.
I need a drain cover replacement cap. It is the small drain at the bottom of the Egg shaped filter. I have the Sand Dollar, Pentair, SD60, installed back in 2008 I only need the drain cap. What item number?? Thank you
Kimberly,The drain cap for the SD-60 Sand Dollar system is part # 4600-4712 and can be seen HERE.
I have a sd-60 sand filter above ground. what is the part called that has like a screen that is shaped like a 6 slices of apple pie , may or may not have had a small dome on it
You may be referring to the Standpipe Assembly, which has six Laterals attached, which help filter the water through the sand. They are in stock as individual units as is the standpipe assembly as a whole. You can see a diagram of the filter's parts here.
Does this model have all the necessary equipment to operate the filter?
John, The Pentair SD-60 Sand Dollar w/ 6 Way Valve Filter comes with just the filter tank and multiport valve. You'll need to purchase the other connections, hoses or get the 6' Flex Hose Kit (155151) and any other equipment needed.
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.
