    Congrats on your soon to be new home.

    That looks a like a tall, single cartridge type of filter.

    Do you know how big the pool is?

    MY pool filter is very similar. If you have any more specific questions about the pool or maintenance, just let us know.

    Hi Jakmak,
    welcome to TFP.

    Thats a cartridge filter.
    A sand filter is very round
    a DE filter will have a backwash or bump valve on it.

    The pool is 18' X 30' guessing around 22,000 gal. and is a mess. Pool has not been tended to for around a year. Had a cover on it for the last 3 mo.
    Thanks for the info.

    That is a Hayward single cartridge filter. The pump to the right is a Hayward pump.

    22,000 gallons and only one single filter? You may want to consider upgrading that filter to one that's bigger and holds more cartridges.

    Cartridge filters are nice, and very easy to maintain. But pools with smaller filters end up having to clean them more often. I have a large, 4 cartridge Hayward (200 square feet of filtration). I cleaned it once last year, and so far only once this year.

    It looks like the pressure is pretty high. That should be checked.

    If my guess is correct, the pressure may be high due to the small size of the filter and the amount of debris that may be trapped in it.

    That is a Star Clear Plus cartridge filter. Looks like a C17502 or 2S. Here is the link to the owners manual.
