    filter or no filter.

    Hi guys,,, I've been around for a while now and enjoyed the countless pages of fantastic information you have kindly divulged.
    My question is, I have a standalone solar system for my aboveground pool of which is run by 0.75 onga pump connected to a 24" sand filter.
    I haven't had any problems with it for the last few seasons but I'm after opinions on if i really need a the filter,,,
    the reason for the question is I've not long ago purchased a cartridge filter as the main filter along with a hayward vs pump which is doing a superb job,,,, so much better than the sand filter and 1 speed pump ever did.
    Does anyone run their standalone solar WITHOUT a filter.
    By the way my water is perfectly clear, not even that fine dust I used to get with the sand filter.
    intex ultra frame round pool 6831g totally hard plumbed with hayward variable speed pump and jandy cs150 cartridge filter... plus a solar heating roof system with a .75 onga pump and 24" sand filter.

    I would definitely run solar after the filter. Too much opportunity for little tubes to get clogged.
