Pool size-16x30; 17,000 gal. Do I need 60 or 70 sq ft DE filter? Pump size: 2hp Max E Pro full rate P6R6G-208 L. Is this setup correct?

A  Answered on 3/3/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Robert M.

We would recommend the S7MD72 since you have a 2HP full rated pump. The S7MD72 is designed to handle the higher flow rate.

My psi sometimes rises from 18 to 22 or 23. The gauge and air pressure release has been cleaned and I have found some small pine needles in there. I am wondering if I am loosing pressure and need to replace the gauge, air release, etc. I am sure it is not from the filter basket or skimmer being blocked or full.

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

Hi Ross, You would require the 2" Multiport Port Valve for the S7MD60 Filter here, and here is the Pentair Speration Tank you would require.
