I'm curious about this. Our free pool came with a 150lb sand filter. Instead of using it I found a deal on a Hayward C1250 canister and went that way instead. It is 120 sq/ft and the pool is 24' x 52". It seems to work great. Good flow and I only need to clean it every 2 or 3 weeks. I use a filter sock and change it every morning.
Technically speaking, is this filter about right for a 24' pool?
