In my quest to defeat the neverending pollen problem in my pool, I have decided to look for a cartridge filter to replace the sand filter. Pool is a 24ft AGP and I would like to keep the 2 speed 1hp sta rite pump I currently have. I know that alot of you suggest going with a larger than normal filter for the pool size.
Questions are: What size range should I be looking for? Can I reuse the existing pump(that has its outlet on the top and not the side)? And what brands come recommended?
The three that I am looking at now are: Hayward Xstream(120sqft 38,400 gal 8 hour filter rate) Pentair clean and clear(100sqft 48,000 gal 8 hr. filter rate) and sta-rite system2(100sqft 48,000gal 8hr) I am seeing these 3 in a Doheny's catalog and they sell filter only as well as filter/pump(which I don't need)
