My pool system is 30 years old. I have a Pac Fab DE filter model WS/FNS-48. The fiberglass is badly deteriorated and I wish to replace this filter with a new filter. Can you advise me of a replacement filter? Thank you

Good morning Barney, You are looking for FNS Plus 48 Sq Ft Filter w/o Valve - 180008. I would also recommend you replace the muti-port. Which you can click on parts by filter and choose whether you have 1.5 inch or 2" plumbing.

Hi Nick, The FNS Plus 36 filter can be a suitable replacement if your pump does not exceed 72 gpm. There are different types of valve that can be used with this filter depending on your pipe size and style valve. You can view the available valve via the Pentair FNS Plus D.E. Filter Parts page.

Will this filter a 20'x40' pool 33,000 gal?

A  Answered on 5/21/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

This filter can handle up 72 GPM's per minute meaning that it will be able to accomodate 34,000 gallons in an 8 hour time period. So this filter can handle your 33,000 gallon pool, however if your pocket book can handle it I would suggest going up to the FNS Plus 48 Sq. Ft. DE Filter. A larger filter will put less strain on your pump and will have a larger filtering capacity meaning you will not have to backwash your filter as often as with the 36 Sq. Ft. model.
