We have a Posi-Flo bullet style filter that is rusting out. We patched it with waterproof tape, but it is a band aid and we need to replace it.
We are being directed by our pool store to go with a Clean and Clear Plus 420 SF filter. There will need to be a lot of re-plumbing to fit this larger filter into the space and the installed price quote is over $1400.
We are wondering if we need to go with the 420 SF filter? The sticky note for this forum seemed to indicate that we want a minimum of 225 SF.
We clean the current filter every 2-3 months, more if there is a lot of debris coming from neighbor's trees and hedges. Less in winter. We cover the pool with a solar cover from about April-October as we are inland in the SF Bay Area and it is usually in the 80s and 90s in the warm months. It was 90 today!
The rest of our pool info is in my signature.
