We purchased our home with a gigantic inground pool mess we are trying to rectify. The current filtration system is located in our basement and needs to be relocated outside. I have dug up the pipes on the outside of my basement foundation and plan on installing new pipes to redirect the plumbing to an outside location. I'm thinking of going with a sand filter simply for the easy maintenance and care. Our pool I believe is approximately 30,000 gal.
I have researched head loss and bigger filter with a smaller pump but I'll be honest my head is spinning and I'm still at a loss for what would be best. The pipes currently are approximately 2' underground and will need to have some joint put in that will make some of the water traveling upward to reach the new system. Can anyone give any kind of a recommendation based on this info?
I have looked mostly at Hayward and I'm guessing I should go with a 31" filter with a 1HP pump?
Is there another brand that you prefer? We are trying to be as cost effective with this also and will be doing most of the work ourselves. image.jpgHere is where I have dug out the pipes going into the basement and this is the tunnel I plan to re-route them. This is all underneath our screen porch also (most of this digging was done with a garden shovel 😝
