    Cartridge filter size

    Hello all,

    Need some help choosing the best size cartridge filter for my pool. I have a 18,000 gallon screened in pool with a caretaker 99 (ugh..) system. I am removing the outdated and underpowered 3/4HP pump and DE filter that was in there.

    So far I have selected a SP2302VSP from Hayward. It is a 1.5HP variable speed pump. Based off everything I have read it looks like a 90sf will carry the system.

    What do you think?
    20,000 Gallon, .75 hp single-speed pump, Stainless steel DE filter, Caretaker-99 in-floor cleaning system

    I would suggest 250 to 300 square feet.

    I'm with James on bigger is better for a cartridge filter, however, I had no interest in cleaning a big multi cartridge system . While my pool is only 11,000 gallons , I went with hayward single cartridge star clear 175 sqft filter. 90 sqft would be too small for your pool
    14x26 rectangle vinyl liner pool . 1.5 hp 2 speed tri star pump, 2 aqua genie skimmers , no main drain. 175 sq ft star clear cartridge filter. 200,000 btu hayward heater Tf-100
