Hello , we have an Intex 18' × 48" round pool. Will this filter do the job or would you suggest a sand filter system

A  Answered on 4/27/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Taylor this filter will do the job, you may need a few of these Intex Fittings to connect the hoses to your pool.

will this work on a above ground pool 15 round and 42 inches deep thanks

A  Answered on 7/6/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Frank. This system is not recommended for a 15" Round pools.  The Hayward Xstream Filter 100 Sq Ft w/ 1 HP Pump - CC10092S will be sufficient for your size pool.

Hi, Audie. This system is too small for an 18' x 33' pool. I would recommend the Hayward Xstream Filter 150 Sq Ft, 1.5 HP TL (Twist Lock) - CC15093STL.

Have a 15' x 30' x 52" oval pool with an estimated 13,000 gal of water. Have a Hayward HP50TA heat pump and thinking of purchasing a Hayward Model C2251540LSS cartridge filter pump. Is this a good fit for this pool as I estimate it is a little oversized at 40 gym? Your ad doesn't list HP but I'm guessing it is 1 HP. Tom

A  Answered on 6/9/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Tom M. Unfortunately, this Cartridge Filter System - C2251540LSS will not be sufficient to operate the Hayward Heat Pro Heat Pump - HP50TA efficiently. That is, as the filter gets dirty, the water flow will be reduced unable to provide the minimum flow required. A system with a larger filter like the Hayward Xstream Filter 100 Sq Ft w/ 1 HP Pump - CC10092S will be better.

we have a 24 round pool by 48 depth what would be the best system to get a cartridge system or a sand filter system.

A  Answered on 8/19/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard G. The Hayward Pump & Sand Filter - S180T92SFT or the Hayward Xstream Filter 100 Sq Ft w/ 1 HP Pump - CC10092S are good for a 24RD pool.

What size for an above ground pool with 10500 gallons?

A  Answered on 7/21/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

We would recommend something like the Hayward CC10092S. That system would have a 1HP pump and a 100 square foot cartridge filter.

would this work for a 14ft above ground pool and would i be able to attach a cleaner like a creepy crawly to it?

A  Answered on 9/6/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Yes, that will circulate the water as well as run the cleaner.

Would this pump work well with a 15' round pool

A  Answered on 6/6/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Chas, For a 15' round pool we would suggest the larger Hayward 1 HP Pump w/ a 40 Sq. Ft. Cartridge Filter.

I need to replace my Haywood filter housing, iIt has started to leak. the pump is fine, with a spare. Can I order just the filter housing and filter?

A  Answered on 6/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Walt, The Filter Body Housing (CX120B) is the filter housing for this system.

Will this pump and filter work with a 18' round Doughboy? Thanks for the help.

A  Answered on 5/27/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi JJ, This system is a bit small for an 18' round, I would suggest a 1 HP Hayward Matrix Pump w/ 100 Sq. Ft. Cartridge

What size and hp would you recommend for a 15x30x52" oval pool?

I have a intex 22x 52 vinyl pool what size pump do i need prefer sand system? I also want to purchase a hayward 500 Aqua bug above ground automatic pool cleaner

A  Answered on 7/5/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Janice, I would suggest the Game 3/4 HP pump w/ Sand Filter and the Hayward AquaBug Pool Cleaner.

?     Asked on 6/25/2015 by Tim

Pool size 18' round 48" depth. Will this work? I would add inlet and outlet valves. Can a pressure gage be added? When we upgrade to a 24' round 52" depth is there a pump that would work with both? Preference is a cartridge system. We do not have a vacuum , can you recommend something that would work with this? there is no skimmer on pool. Thank you.

A  Answered on 6/27/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi Tim, I would recommend the Hayward 40 Sq. Ft. Filter W/ 1 HP Pump, it has a pressure gauge and would be able to operate the Hayward Automatic Pool Cleaner Wanda the Whale, Hayward Automatic Swimming Pool Cleaner Diver Dave or the Hayward Aquabug  unlike the 25 Sq Ft Cartridge Filter System w/ 40 GPM Pump. With a larger capacity filter you can go longer in between cleaning out the 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.

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.

?     Asked on 5/21/2015 by Sally

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.

Hello Frank - This pump/motor system is not rated in HP. It is rated a 40 GPM pump/motor.

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.
