How many gallons does this unit filter for a pool. And recommend sizes it will fit?

A  Answered on 3/16/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Joe S.

This 25 sw ft cartridge combo system moves and filters at a rate of 2400 gallons a hours so turn over rate in a  8 hour period would be 19,200 gallons. Turning over a pool that is 9,600 gallons twice.

Would this pump work for our 12'x24' Intex pool?

A  Answered on 5/21/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Sally, Yes this would work on a 12'x24' Intex pool. You may also want to consider our 18" Sand Filter W/ 3/4 HP Pump which we currently have on sale. The 18" sand filter system has twice the filtering and pump capabilities and currently is $100 less than this system.

I have a 48" depth x 24' circular pool. Will this filter handle it?

A  Answered on 5/24/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Joe, This system would be too small for a 24' round pool. I would suggest a 3/4 HP Pump with 18" Sand Filter.

Would you recommend this for a 6800 gal. pool?

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

Hi John, for a 6,800 gallon above ground pool I would suggest the 3/4 HP Pump W/ 18" Sand Filter System here.
