I currently have a hayward 300 super filter system for my pool that has a capacity of 90,000 gallons I am running with a hayward pump 200gpm I believe my question is would the performance of upgrading to a higher filteration capacity ( say 350 or better enhance the filtration performance and result in me having a longer duration of time before cleanings circumstances,is there a point where upsizing is of no benefit.

Hello Ron - A larger filter will allow you to go longer between cleaning cycles.
