Escape from pool and spa maintenance with Sta-Rite`s Modular Media Filter.
For More Sta-Rite Pool Filters
I have a 13,000 gallon in ground pool. I'm replacing my single speed pump with a variable. At the same time I'm thinking about replacing my sand filter with a cartridge filter. The equipment is under a deck and I only have 56 inches of vertical clearance form the ground to the deck. Is this a good choice for me?
Hi Mike, Yes I think this would be good for you. My main concern was the clearance, having enough room to remove the lid over the cartridge and removing the cartridge. I have attached the dimensions of the filter and the cartridge measures about 19 inches tall, from math you should have enough clearance. As far as filtering performance for your pool set up this would be a great filter.
(4 out of 5 stars) Works much better than Hayward filter

Pros: Easy to install - improved flow rate by about 50%
Cons: Not cheap to replace cartridge media
The filter was easy to install. The filter arrived with a non working pressure guage but customer service at Sta-Rite responded to send out a new one. The Filter improved GPM (Gallons per minute) flow about 50% over the Hayward 160 Square fool filter it replaced. Old filter could not remove fine white cloudiness in the water. The new filter had the pool crystal clear in a couple of days.
