I just purchased a PL1502 from you guys. Would this filter be compatible and efficient for a 24 ft 4ft deep above ground. Thanks

There are a number of filter models that you can use with a 1.5 hp pool. You can view a few options by clicking here to see a few models that are paired with a 1.5 hp above ground pool pump.

Would this filter be essentially the same fit to base and pump as the Landslide filter by Jacuzzi in 2003?

A  Answered on 5/29/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Leo. Yes, it will fit onto the same base.

I gave my Avalanche filter away and I loved it. I have been looking for a new one. I see you sell the tank but I would need the entire tank and base. Do you still have the entire filter for sale. I have a motor.

We carry only the model AV40 and AV60 Avalanche filters.

I have a Proline/Jacuzzi Model 40DE-HK6-NAMCO filter - from 2006, I was going to order a replacement for the inside grids; the Cassette LS40 grid 42356206r000, but thought for a few more dollars I could get this whole filter, my pump is running fine, do you think this would align okay with my current pump and base?

A  Answered on 4/28/2017 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Dan. Yes, this Avalanche AV40 would align with the pump and base that you have.

What size is a DE scoop in cups? I lost my DE scoop.

A  Answered on 6/8/2015 by InyoPools Product Specialist Patrick P.

When Pool DE filters mention so many lbs. of DE this is by volume and not weight. The method that many use for measuring DE is to use a 1 lb coffee can, this will be equivalent to 1/2 lb. of DE powder. We also carry a DE Scoop with the same volume as a 1lb coffee can.
