Just came out to find my filter enclosure cracked and spewing water everywhere. Right now I have a Pentair FNS 48 and I was thinking about replacing it with a FNS 60 (which is just larger capacity). All the inlet and outlet locations are in the same place, so it should be an easy swap out.
Is there any issue going with a larger filter size?
The filter unit is about 8 years old and it does see a bunch of sun (equipment is south west exposure).
I don't maintain my own pool ( I know, I know), but is it possible that the pressure was increased in the filter because the company was not cleaning the filter as often as needed? I don't know what a dirty DE filter looks like.. but mine was filled with tons of DE when I took it out just now and looked dirty..
