I have an Intex metal frame 15' round by 42" deep pool. Is this filter too big for this pool?

A  Answered on 8/7/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The Hayward VL40T32 would be a perfect system for an 15' round Intex pool. We have upgraded many Intex pools with this Hayward pump and filter with great success.

Regarding the capacity, is the rating amount of water higher than 9,000, up to 11,000 ? Is it more than adequate for 9,000 gallons ?

A  Answered on 4/26/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Thank you for contacting INYO Pools. The "Suitable for above ground pools up to 11,000 gallons". Is just a guide line, we actually recommend customer go a little higher than the recommended equipment, because this pump is designed to "turnover" (or clean) the water very 8 hours. So in your case this will run more efficient and turnover all the pool water in about 6.5 hours. You can still run it more or less depending on how dirty your pool gets. because this is designed to filter and clean a pool with 11000 gallons it will just run more efficiently and keep the system cleaner than a system designed for a 9000 gallon pool.

Does the Hayward VL40T32 come with hoses and sand?

A  Answered on 5/2/2013 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

The filter system comes with hoses. Hayward made the VL40T32 specifically for intex/soft-sided pools. The system does not come with sand. You can purchase silica/filter sand at any local pool supply store.

If the spider gasket goes bad on the valve for this filter can it be replaced or do I need to buy a whole new valve?

A  Answered on 6/19/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

On this filter you would need to purchase the diverter to replace the spider gasket, so it would not be the entire valve, it is basically the handle assembly.
