    Filter Suggestion

    I have a SLR 1.5 hp Jacuzzi pump with a cooper 200Lb sand filter. Its about 10 years old and the selector valve has started to leak. Should I replace just the filter for now or is it usually cheaper to buy it as a combo. And what do you guys suggest?

    I would try to to find one with a 2 speed pump. You'll save lots of electricity.

    Why not just replace the multiport valve?

    They're almost half the price of a filter. And I am sure it will kick soon after
