I currently own a 24' above ground pool with a cartridge filter system with a 1.5 hp pump and a leap frog infuser. My wife wants to switch to a sand filtration system because she thinks it will be easier to maintain. (as if she is the one that maintains it) My question is can the filter unit be switched out and I keep my existing pump and frog infuser or do I need to get a whole new unit? And....is it worth it to switch to sand or should I just keep the cartridge? I don't think it is that difficult to maintain. I do have some heavy cottonwood stuff that gets in there in early spring but other than that...
appreciate any input.
