I am back again and this time as a Lifetime Supporter. I know that I am going to reap benefits far in excess of my donation and want to thank you all in advance.
I am ready to purchase my pump and filter. In another post it was suggested a 1 or ¾ HP two speed pump for my 10,354 gal 15’x26’ AG. I am inclined to go with the ¾ HP because of operational savings. Hayward and Pentair were recommended as good names. In researching ratings and reviews I cam across Ecopump who claim to be far more efficient than any of their peers. This is all on their own website so I am reaching out for others opinions. Is there anything that I need to purchase with the pump?
I have NO IDEA what filter to purchase either. Do I match it to the pump? I have been told that in this case bigger is better and tend to agree but how big. I am stumped by the sand, cartridge, DE question. I would appreciate opinions and suggestions. I want energy efficiency, dependability and ease of maintenance. I would rather pay more money up front and be thrilled with my investment for years than save any amount of $ and live with regret. From what I am reading cartridge may be the way to go if I am looking for less maintenance and dependability. I don’t know any filter brands either.
Thanks in advance for your help. I am off to work in this frigid weather waiting for the day that water graces my pool.
