I am new to the forum! We are in the process of selecting a pool installer for a 38' steel wall Mountain Lake pool and trying to decide on options. One of the installers is recommending the Hayward SwimClear cartridge filter for the pool. I guess the choice is between DE and a cartridge. None of the installers we have interviewed has recommended sand.
What is the bottom line for a SwimClear. Will the Cartridges need to be cleaned frequently? The installer does not think they will need frequent maintenance. I guess it all depends on the water quality but with reasonable quality will I be hosing these things out frequently?
