Ketan, I checked their catalog and they have the same filter body and lid for both models.

If I run this filter without adding DE will it still clean the pool like a typical cartridge filter?

A  Answered on 6/6/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi. It will not using the DE Style Module. You will need to convert your DE - S7MD60 filter to Cartridge - S8M500. You will need to purchase Part # 25021-0021 along with the Inner Cartridge - and Outer Cartridge - 25022-0225S

Need a new pool filter looking at sta rite s7 md72 system. 28,000 gallon pool, with Hayward 2 hp pump. Would this model handle the pool size and the rated pump hp. Than you?

A  Answered on 3/22/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi John, This unit can handle your size pool and can bu used with a 2 HP as long as the flow rate produced by the pump does not exceed 90 GPM. You can use the steps in our How To: Size a Pool Pump and How To: Size a Pool Filter guide for more info.

What is the recommended 2" multiport valve and doe sta-rite make a de recovery tank? I will be replacing a Hayward tank. Is there a discount / shipping promotion if I order all three?

A  Answered on 5/31/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Ross, You would require the 2" Multiport Port Valve for the S7MD60 Filter here, and here is the Pentair Speration Tank you would require.

My psi sometimes rises from 18 to 22 or 23. The gauge and air pressure release has been cleaned and I have found some small pine needles in there. I am wondering if I am loosing pressure and need to replace the gauge, air release, etc. I am sure it is not from the filter basket or skimmer being blocked or full.

Pool size-16x30; 17,000 gal. Do I need 60 or 70 sq ft DE filter? Pump size: 2hp Max E Pro full rate P6R6G-208 L. Is this setup correct?

A  Answered on 3/3/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

We would recommend the S7MD72 since you have a 2HP full rated pump. The S7MD72 is designed to handle the higher flow rate.
