Escape from pool and spa maintenance with Sta-Rite`s Modular Media Filter.
For More Sta-Rite Pool Filters
Currently having my 12.5K pool resurfaced with marbletite miami blue and new tile. Currently 1HP pump and the PLM100 filter cartridge. I have been thinking about adding the Pool Salt System 20k CGS and wondering if I should buy another PLM100 cartridge or upgrade to a sand filter such as the Hayward S244T? The PLM100 has always kept the pool sparkling, but its a pain to wash the filter so often and replacing once a year at $150. Any advice?
Switching from a cartridge filter to a sand filter is a down-grade, it does not filter the water as well as the cartridge filter. Another option would be a D.E. filter which you backwash when it needs to be cleaned. For cartridge filter replacement I recommend part number 160316, the replacement cartridges are $59.99. For a D.E. filter I recommend 180008.
I have a 10k in ground pool with a PLM100 filter and a 1 hp pump. The filter housing is leaking. I'm considering a PLM150 or a Posi-Clear PXCRP150. Recommendations?
I'm also considering a new pump. Assuming I've done the math right, I have 30 feet of head loss. Pump motor is a Marathon 5kc38sn609ax. Do you have a recommendation(s) for a variable speed replacement?
Hi, Topher. The PXCRP150 is the filter that I would recommend. It has a higher flow rating, it will take up less space and because of the raised port maximize the filtration efficiency. If you can provide use with the pump model instead of the motor model we can recommend a suitable variable speed pump.
sta-rite filters whats the difference between plm 100 and plm 200 size is the same
Hi Eddie, The PLM200 has twice the number for folded pleats on the cartridge giving it twice the effective filtration area over the PLM100. The PLM200 would have 200 Sq. Ft. of effective filtration area vs. 100 Sq. Ft. on the PLM100.
