While my little cartridge filter (Hayward C12002 Filter with knockoff CX1200RE cartridge) does an alright job, I've been considering the move to sand both to eliminate the constant cleaning of the filter element and to get some improved efficiency through sand filtration. Everything I've read here and other places online is leaving me confused.
Would you recommend sand over cartridge and why?
Would a 250 pound Hayward sand pot work for a 12,000 gallon pool with my 3/4 hp pump?
Other than re-plumbing and putting in fresh sand, what else am I going to have to deal with when converting to sand?
Thanks again for your help, guys and gals. I know I ask a lot of questions, but I'm just trying to do all of this right.
