Product Description

Sta Rite Cristal-Flo II Sand Filter

Press, twist, and relax


You won't burn many calories maintaining Cristal-Flo™ Top-Mount Filters. A little two-way wrist action on the control valve puts the Cristal-Flo to work cleaning itself. And, this is one workout routine you won't have to do very often. Through innovative engineering, the filter's dirt-handling capacity is maximized, which extends the time between cleanings (backwashing).

Features

  • Typical Installations – Inground pools and water features (including fish ponds and water gardens)
  • Quality Construction – Durable one-piece extra-thick molded polyethylene tank
  • Safe – Internal air relief hole allows air to automatically escape, preventing high pressure buildup

Hi, I'm starting to have an issue with my Sta-Rite filter. Can't find the Model # on it but my manual covers T-150BP-1 up to T-300BP-2 (if that helps) Anyway, with the valve set on FILTER, when I switch the pump OFF it now sends a fair discharge of water OUT through the waste line. Filter & valve shows no signs of leaking & valve controls respond correctly as always. Any idea on troubleshooting this issue? Thanks!
 Reply

A  Answered on 7/22/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alex V.

Adrian, You will need to inspect the spider gasket inside of the filter valve. It sounds like that is what the issue is.

Will the spider gasket and other parts for a T 240 multi port valve fit in my T-200 valve. If I replace the whole multi port valve with a T 240, are the plumbing connections the same? Thank you
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/24/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Bill. The older T200BP valve parts are not compatible with the new T240BP valve. You will have to redo the plumbing because the T240BP is taller than the T200BP.

I changed the sand in my filter today the T24BP-1 and now I am getting a lot air in my glass on the pump ....also where can I get the sticker on top that show the filter backwash -------
 Reply

A  Answered on 6/1/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Richard. Air in the strainer housing is a sign of a suction leak or a pump priming issue. Try opening the air relief on the filter and also check the suction side of your system for any bad O-rings or gasket.

Hi, I have a Model T-240BP. It worked perfectly last year. When I started it up this year after backwashing, I put it on filter and I'm getting a continuous drizzle of water out of my waste line. I've run through all the operations and everything seems to working fine but the drizzle continues. Could there be a seal that is bad?
 Reply

A  Answered on 5/28/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

Yes, this is a sign that the spider gasket within the multiport valve has failed. In order to cross reference that you will need to get the specific model of that valve. You can provide that in another Q&A or you can submit that information through our support request page.

I have a sta-rite sand filter #T240BP1, and its malfunctioning. Is the #T240BP1-2 just a newer model? I have sand in my pool ( not from wind), & think it might be an broken lateral.(?) it makes gurgling sounds at the multiport valve also. I know that's an air leak (most likely a O-ring). I have had this problem since redoing the sand. Perhaps I put too much or too little sand? (I took sand out to about 2-3" above laterals to prevent breakage) I have NO manuel. any ideas?
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/7/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

Sounds like a broken lateral or standpipe. If the sand is not installed careful enough the weight of the sand will crack the laterals or standpipe allowing sand to blow into the pool.

Will the T240BP Crystol be adequate for a commercial pool with 10,000 gals of water 1.5 horse pump motor
 Reply

A  Answered on 4/5/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

That is going to depend on the flow rate. That filter is able to handle a flow rate of 62 GPM so I would need your pump model and the distance from your pump to your skimmers to determine the flow rate.
 Reply

How much pump HP can this filter handle?
 Reply

A  Answered on 3/3/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Alan M.

This filter has a flow rating of 62 GPM (gallons per minute). This is the information you will need in determining if a particular pump's flow rating meets or exceeds the parameter of the filter. Different models of pumps with the same HP can have different flow ratings.

My unit came with my house and I estimate it is 10+ years old and has sprung a leak in the tank near the neck. I need to replace and want to ensure this is the right unit and includes all I need.

Hi Tom, On average, the sand in your filter should be replaced every 3-4 years. You can view our How To Change Sand In a Sand Filter guide for instructions.

Is this the right filter to replace a t-240bp-1? I notice it is 5 inches taller. Will I still be able to use the existing multi-port valve?

A  Answered on 6/5/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

Hi Greg, Yes this would be the right replacement filter for the t-240bp-1 sand filter and your filter valve would fit on this filter.

I replaced the sand in my Sta-Rite T240BP1 filter. also replaced the laterals. Used the correct sand. The sand is flowing out through my return line. Re-checked the laterals, they are all properly locked. No damage to the laterals, either.

Hi, The problem could now lie with the multiport valve, the diverter inside the valve could be bad.

I have a Sta-Rite model T-240BP-1 that is about 14 years old. When you go to filter mode, it acts like it is in waste mode and sends it down the drain. I've replaced the plug and gasket assembly with no help. Help!

Louis, If you already replaced the plug and gasket assembly, you may need to replace the complete valve or have someone out to see what's the issue.

When should I change the sand in my filter?
 Reply

A  Answered on 1/27/2012 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

You should change the sand in your filter every 5-7 years. You can generally tell that it is time if your pool water is not as clear as it normally is or when you notice the interval between backwashes is shorter. You can use > this guide to walk you through it.
