    That unit is rated for 44 gpm so in theory it's large enough, However, it's always better to have a larger filter than you need. With a 24' pool I would recommend a larger filter than the Intex model. Having said that, we all understand the economic considerations and the Intex filter will do the job.

    Ideally you want a relatively small pump and the largest filter you can afford. Even a large pool is normally fine with a 3/4 HP pump. Anything more than that and you are just wasting electricity. A larger filter means longer time between filter cleanings and a more efficient system.

    It is difficult to recommend a specific model without some idea of your budget and what your electric rates are. If it were my pool I'd probably spend close to $1000 and get a huge filter and a two speed pump. However, you can get something that will work just fine for way less than that. It all depends on how price sensitive you are.

    I have the Pentair SD-60 on my 24' x 52" pool and wouldn't recommend anything smaller. As Jason said, a 3/4 hp pump would be plenty big.

    As far as I know you can do that without a problem. I think 2" foam is overkill but if that's what you want it'll be fine.
