I would like to use this filter inline with my already in place pentair filter. Will there be any issue's? Like not enough water flow or pressure drops? Looking to increase filter coverage.

Hi, You can use this filter with an existing filter, you will have to make sure its plumb correctly to maximize water flow.

I currently have Pentair FNS 36 D.E. filter with the Pentair 1.5 H.P. Superflow Pump for my 23,000 gallon in-ground pool. I would like to switch to a Pentair cartridge filter system. Is the Pentair CCRP 150 large enough?

A  Answered on 5/4/2020 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Bill, Yes the CCRP150 Filter would be more than adequate for the size pool you have described.

Hi, Ed. This Clean & Clear RP Cartridge Filter 200 sqft - 160353 will be more than sufficient for your pool if the pump flow rate does not exceed 150 GPM.

Hello.  The Pentair SuperFlo® VS 1.5 HP Variable Speed Pool Pump - EC-342001 and the Clean & Clear RP150 Cartridge Filter - EC-160355 would be an excellent equipment combination for a 15K pool installed with a 1.0 HP Pool Pump and 60 sq ft DE Filter.  The Pentair SuperFlo VS is a flexible well built variable speed pool pump and in combination with the C&C RP 150 Filter will meet the circulation/filtration requirements of a 15K gallon pool.

I'm interested in the Pentair EC-160353 cartridge filter. I have a in ground rectangular 14' x 28' pool with 11,800 gallons. Can you tell me if this is enough of a filter for this size pool? Thanks

Hello, so on the average swimming pool of your general specifications yes however, there are other important variables to consider/calculate to help confirm. Here is our "How To Size a Pool Filter" guide which should assist you in those calculations.
