Manual suggests pouring .5 lbs of DE in filter per 100 SF to "enhance filtration of the water". I have a 24 FT round, deep end AG pool (15,000 gals). I poured 2.0 lbs of DE (thru skimmer) into new filter. Problem: residual DE re-enters the pool, settles on bottom like so many "spots". I vacuumed bottom twice (pressure is great, DE disappeared), thoroughly cleaned the filter and started over. While less, some DE is still visible. Suggestion?
It is .5 pounds per 100 square feet so putting 2 pounds in your system is 4 times too much and that is why you are seeing DE powder return back to the pool.
Could you give me some idea of the size Pentair clean&clear cartridges filter for a inground pool 10000 gals, pump runs about 6 hours a day now.
Hello Chuck - The 100 square foot Clean & Clear would be sufficient for a 10,000 gallon pool. This filter can handle up to 100 gallons per minute.
I need a new cartridge filter. I see Pentair is what I am replacing but I don't know what size to order. It is 3 1/2 ft tall and 40" around. Can you assist with just that information? Does the one you sell also come with the inside filter cartridge? Thank you.
Hi, Pat. Unfortunately, that's not enough go by. We will need the unit's model number or the part number off of the cartridge. These unit do come with a cartridge inside.
the 160316 Pentair filter uses what replacement cartridge?
With a solar heating system, how many times per month should I clean the cartridge filter. Thanks.
Hello, Richard. Every pool is different and will accumulate debris faster than others depending on usage and environmental issues. The best way to monitor the cleaning time of the filter is to log your "psi" after you clean the filter element and turn the equipment back on. When the "psi" increases by 10, from the starting, clean the filter.

What size cartridge do i need for a 26,000 gallon pool?
Hello Don - The 100 square foot Clean & Clear would be sufficient for a 26,000 gallon pool. This filter can handle up to 100 gallons per minute.
Can you please tell me what, if any, benefits there would be to using this one over the 75 sq/ft unit for my pool size?
Hello Sharon - The benefit would be that you would not have to clean out the 100 square foot filter as often as the 75 square foot filter.
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.
Does this come with the filter cartridge and gauges?
This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.

Pros: In my case, only had to swap them out - quick & Easy
After searching on line and local stores was able to find this perfect replacment (match) for my existing which was made by PacFab Corp. The old one is 13 years old and has served me well. That fact and not having to make any piping changes made this filter the right one for me. Price was good and delivery was within 5 days.

This was a replacement filter for my 20+ year old jacuzzi filter. The new filter is lightweight, was easy to install and is much quieter than my old system. Although it is new, it is working well, and I am looking forward to it working for many years to come.
