So our new pool is full with dirt, grass and small debris. I didn't want to invest in an automatic cleaner just yet, even though I did leave an inlet to connect one, so I ordered a Hayward 1HP pump, Pentair vac pro (19"), and a 50' hose along with an inline canister. My question is, should I get a small cartridge filter? say a 50sq ft size just for when I vacuum the pool? The main reason I went ahead and did this was because there are possibly two other pools on the way that I will help build for my brothers. We agreed to share the expense and lend each other the equipment. As promising and great the automatic cleaners look we simply wanted to wait on purchasing one. Anyway should I get a small cartridge filter like the Hayward C500 Star Clear Cartridge 50sq ft.?
