Will this sand filter work with a Hayward 1 her power and a 16 by 38 foot pool?

Hi Barbara, This filter can work with a 1 horsepower Hayward pump used on a 16' x 38 pool.

Hi, can I use this filter with a hayward variable speed 1.5 HP pump? Thank you,

A  Answered on 7/2/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Joe, This Waterway 16" Carefree Sand Filter is too small to handle a 1.5 hp vs pump at max rpm's. The only how this filter will work is if you keep the pump at a flow rate of 35 gpm.
