I have a small unground pool. Somewhere around 18000-20000 gallons. Would this filter be to big. Also I have 1 1/2” plumbing. Would it be ok to reduce down from 2 “? I have a Hayward super pump.
On a filter, bigger is better so you would have no problem on this filter. Also, it is not an issue going from 1.5" plumbing up to 2" ports, this issue is vice versa, going from 2" plumbing down to 1.5" ports, so you should be good with this filter.
Would this filter be a good replacement for a hayward DE filter model ec65?
My pool is inground and 18k gallons with a hayward super pump 3/4hp.
What's the approximate cleaning interval for a filter of this size with my pool?
Hi, Chris. I would recommend a larger capacity cartridge filter like the Clean and Clear Cartridge Filter 150 Sq. Ft. - 160317.
How do i size a filter?
My pool and spa are small. I'm thinking no more than about 9k gallons
Hi Ed, When sizing a filter you want to make sure that the filter can handle the output of water from the pump. This is measured in Gallons Per Minute (GPM), normally a pool pump is sized to turn your pool over in 8 Hrs. and if your pump was sized properly then this 75 Sq. Ft. (75 GPM) filter should be fine for your pool. With a pool filter, it is always better to go bigger so if you wanted to go up to a 100 Sq. Ft. Filter then you would have a longer time between cleaning your cartridge and you put less stress on your pump.
My pool holds 17,000 gallons of water which filter would it require?
Hello, This filter 160315 Clean and Clear Cartridge Filter 75 Sq. Ft. is perfectly adequate for this type pool.
Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?
As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size. Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size. DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.
