We have to make a decision on what filter package we should add to the 24' 54" above ground round pool (about 15,228 gallons of water) we are going to purchase. Our options are as follows:
-Hayward Voyager 150 sq ft cartridge filter with a 1.0 HP Swimpro pump
-Hayward 256t sand filter with 1.0 HP pump (hold 250lbs of sand) - $30 upgrade charge
-Hayward EC45 D.E. filter with a 1.5HP Matrix Pump - $160 upgrade charge
-Hayward EC65 D.E. filter with 1.0 pump - $400 upgrade charge
Originally I wanted a cartridge filter, but 150 sq ft is the biggest they offer. I'm not sure how these filters compare to each other since they are different types, and I can't seem to find specs on any of them since they are sold exclusively through a pool chain. Any and all suggestions and/or info on these filters would be greatly appreciated!
