    Good soure for Filter Online

    I need to replace my filter. The multivalve on my 15 year old DB filter has a crack and leaks everywhere under pressure. The whole rig is pretty old, so I am opting for replacement.

    I am leaning towards a Hayward s180T but would also consider a Pentair SD 35. Since parts for both are readily available locally.

    Can anyone give a good online source to buy one of these filters? Looks like Leisure Living has some on Fee-Bay, but thought I would check with the fine folks here for any good advice.

    From time to time good deals can be found on ebay, I bought my Hayward EC-75 /Super Pump and base combo new in the box on ebay winter before last for less than half the best price I found from the various mail order outfits.

    For a 24' pool and the usage you see (Got that from your sig), I'd definitely go bigger than the 180T or the SD-35. I'd recommend at least the 250T or the SD-60. You won't be sorry you went bigger.

    Thanks "Bama and Jason. Ended up with a s210T from Leisure Living on Ebay. Couldn't justify the extra scratch for anything bigger. This is a step up from the 180 I had been looking at. Hope 200lbs will do it!

    I figured $230 shipped was about the best deal I would find this time of year. Shipped today, should be good to go by Wednesday.

    The 210 is a good sized filter for a 24' pool. You may have to bakwash it a few more times a year but that's not too much of an issue.
