?     Asked on 5/27/2018 by Eric

what size sand filter would you recommend using with this pump? I believe the max gpm is 140 for this pump but do I need a filter that would match that max rating or can I use something smaller?

A  Answered on 5/28/2018 by InyoPools Product Specialist Lennox H.

Hi, Eric. Filters are sized based on the pumps actual flow rate which is calculated based on the TDH of your pool's plumbing. Check out our How To Size a Pool Filter guide.

Does this have 2 inch outlet/inlet? Is it 208/240 vac? Can it be programmed to turn on and off for two different cycles in a day? Does control panel need to be shaded from the sun?

Hi JV, This pump does come with 2" suction and discharge ports and does require 230 volts. It can be set to turn on/off at different times, and does not have to be shaded from the sun.
