Deciding between PLM 150 and Posi Clear 150 filter for 24 ft round above ground pool, which is best and why? Like the capability to rinse filer without removing on the PLM, and the shorter stance but how much flow is lost due to bottom entry?

A  Answered on 6/7/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Hector F.

So both of these filters have the same maximum gallons per minute rating and both can filter microns down to 20. With that said it is about preference at this point. If it were myself due to the height of the Posi clear, maintenance would be easier as far as cartridge removal is concerned. I would go with the Posi Clear.

I bought a brand new 27002-150 Sta-Rite pool filter for my pool and did not use it. We have sold our house and bought another house with a pool. I would like to purchase a Sta-Rite Filter housing for this filter to fit for our new pool and want to make sure I am ordering the right housing. Thank You
