Hello, everyone. I love this forum, have been reading for months. Thank you all for so much information.
I am going to purchase a 33'x54" round AGP, probably a Sharkline Matrix or AquaLeader saltwater 8000. Almost 29,000 gallon. I will most likely go with salt water system. From what I have learned, oversizing filter is the thing to do, and match pump to filter. For that volume, the only filter/pumps I can find to handle the volume are for inground pools. Also, considering the size of pool/lines/returns it looks like I need to have 2 skimmers and 2 returns.
To oversize the filter, it looks like the Hayward 270T2 would fit, turn over for 8 hours is 35,500 design flow rate 74 GPM.
Hayward superpump at 40 foot head- SP2610X15 pumps 65 GPM
I am not entirely sure that I will be utilizing the pump and filter's potential output considering the 1.5" lines that are being used. No sense in over sizing if I am just wasting energy because of the size of line and such.
Would you agree that the pool does need 2 skimmers and 2 returns?
Does that filter/pump combo look good? Any other suggestions?
It is entirely possible that I am way off base.
Any suggestions and comments are appreciated!
