I have a split on a 25year old Triton TR100 and it needs replaced. This runs an 83ft water feature with 54 x 2 x 1 creek going into an 28 x 15 x 2.5 pond with 3 small waterfalls. The last figure on both is average water depth...first figures are L x W in feet. The feature does not have skimmers...just a side inlet to the filter and return runs 130 feet around ext of feature to the the 3 falls...I like waterflow to be strong to accent features...rural are a with pine droppings. Recommendations?

A  Answered on 7/25/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mark. I would recommend replacing it with another TR100 sand filter since it lasted that long.

when mixing gravel and sand for triton II, is it gravel on bottom and sand on top or does it matter and wind up mixed as it is ran? If gravel on bottom, is should the gravel cover the "fingers" or stop just below?

A  Answered on 5/30/2018 by Product Owner

Download the manual if you want a clear picture I happen to use all sand but gravel goes on bottom.

Is filter Triton Pentair TR 100 F762 clear pro technology? iwhat is its micron filtration? can it become clear pro with an add-on/replacement product?

A  Answered on 4/19/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, John. This unit is not equipped with the ClearPro Technology. It can be added using the TR100  Clear Pro Kit  - 159028.

Whats is the difference between the Triton II clear pro and the Triton Pentair TR? Can I connect Triton filter to an Astral or Kripsol pump?

A  Answered on 4/18/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, John. The models with the ClearPro Technology is able to filter your pool 4 times better than with a conventional sand filter which will be models without the ClearPro. You can use an Astral or Kripsol Pump to operate your filter as long as it does not exceed the filter's flow rate.

I just had my filter changed from a Triton TR 100 sand filter to a Pentair 420 clean and clear plus cartridge filter. Is this a comparable size for my pool which I'm showing a surface area of 530 ft. 15 1/2 x 32', 92 inch perimeter, 3 x 5 x 4 depth.

A  Answered on 8/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Kat. The Pentair CCP420 is a good replacement for the TR100 sand filter.

As my skimmers are a long way from the pump ( up to 65 feet ) what is the maximum size of pump that can fitted? Many tks.

A  Answered on 7/23/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Mel. We will need more info about your pool like the pool size, and water features if any to determine your flow rate. If I were to make a decision based on the info provided I would recommend the Whisperflo Pump - WFE-4

I have a Pentair Triton 2 sand filter and need to replace the backwash valves. I was going to replace it with a Hayward backwash valve. Will this work?

A  Answered on 6/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Bob, No the Hayward Valve will not fit on the Triton Filter. You would need one of the valves listed on the Pentair Triton Parts Page.

What is the distance from your pump to your skimmers so I can calculate the flow rate so I can find a suitable pump for your system.

My pool pump says it's a Aquatech Corp by Pentair Pool and has a sticker on it that has 140202. The sticker is torn so I can't see any other details of the filter. Do you know what size filter and how many pounds of sand this one is? I'm trying to buy a replacement one and have no idea which to buy. Thanks!!

A  Answered on 7/27/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Keri, I was not able to cross reference the number provide to a specific Pentair model. If you can send us photos along with the tank diameter and height we can find out the size.

How many gallon pool will a Triton II work for? We have a model 140210. Can the valve on the side be converted into a multi position valve such as bottom filter, skimmer filter, backwash filter and both bottom and skimmer?

A  Answered on 8/26/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, The Triton II TR100 Filter Side Mount 30" Tank has a flow rate of 98 GPM. It can handle 47,040 in an 8 hour period. You can use a Multi-port valve based on the size plumbing you have. The Valves can be found via the Pentair Triton 2 Fiberglass Sand Filter Parts.

What is the kit closure for? I have an ancient TR100 that has a 8 1/2" western series dome. The dome is broken and the part is obsolete. The diameter of the lid is 8.5". Could this kit replace the clear dome? Thanks

A  Answered on 7/1/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Brian M.

I called Pentair Technical Assistance ( 800-831-7133 ) and asked them. They said for a filter that is older than 2001, the part number I was given is Pentair 154856 - which is our part number 4600-4856.

When should I change the sand in my filter?

A  Answered on 1/27/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

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.

How many pounds of sand does this filter require?

A  Answered on 1/11/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

If you are using all sand, it takes 600 lb.  You can also use a mix of 150 lb pea gravel and 450 lb sand.
