A few questions regarding Pentair Clean Clear Plus 420 vs Quad DE 60. I know that DE filters better but can be a littler more work. I know sand is the easiest to maintain but is least effective in filtering. If I am going to go with one of the two above which would be best? My "new" PB recommends the CCP 420 to everyone because he said it is easier to maintain. Just clean once a year and I'm set. Our swim season is only May - Sept and we will have a 24K IG VL pool. I don't have to worry about DE regulations where I'm at.
1. Would the DE really be much more work since I would be taking the CCP apart once a year to clean cartridges anyway?
2. Would the DE really cost much more to maintain?
3. Which would you pick?
I think both would be sized well for our pool right? We are going with an Intelliflo SVRS pump as well.
