This filter comes direct from the manufacturer and includes the cartridge and gauges.

Are there specs on how many microns this filter is rated at? Is there available another filter that won't allow finer particles to pass through?

A  Answered on 10/1/2014 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

As a rule, sand filters sift particles ranging from 20 to 40 microns in size.  Cartridge filters can sift particles as small as 10 to 20 microns in size.  DE filters can sift contaminants as small as 1 to 3 microns in size. This makes DE filtration at least five to six times more efficient than sand filtration systems.

is this pump ok for a 27/52 pool approx 16000 gals

Howard- The Clean and Clear 50 Sq. Ft. Filter 160314 will work for a 16k gallon pool. In 8 hours it can turnover 24k gallons.  You would have to make sure you pump isn't too strong for it because it only has a 50 gpm maximum flow rating.

My pool size is as follows. Could you please tell me what size cartridge filter is suitable? L=35 ft, W=15 ft Deep end = 8 ft,; Shallow end = 4 ft I have a pump with 1.5 HP

For your sized pool with the approximate water pressure rating that you have, I would start at the least with a 200 sq. ft. Pentair Clean and Clear filter that you can view here. You may have other factors to be reviewed regarding your system so you may want to confirm with us by providing us with whether you have a solar heating system as well via phone call or get with a licensed pool contractor. Generally speaking though, this is where you would want to begin.

We would need the pump/motor model and the distance the equipment is from the pool in order to make sure that the filter we recommend is compatible, based off the gallons per minute rating with your pump.
