What do you guys suggest? I have noticed after start up this year that my existing sand filter is leaking out of the top valve....not sure if I'm that interested in repairing it. Thinking that it's old very old and done it's service and to just repair it is prolonging the inevitable that its over it's service life.
I'd like some input as to what I should replace it with. Not looking to blow the bank just want something that will work with some reliability.
The existing filter is a sand filter and is servicing a 16 x 32 pool with an 8'deep end ...I could figure out the approximate gallons but.....had a few beers already and.....lol.....not into it.
As an addendum.... I've read a bit about different types of filters...ie diatameous earth or ??? should I be considering these or stick with a sand filter?
