We bought a new Hayward S244t sand filter this year, our pool is 18 x 36 inground(8ft dept, we think) with 2 returns. Our pump is only 3/4 horse, is that too small? It seems like it is taking longer to get our water clear this year. we had a DE filter( not sure of size). This is the first time I am handling all of the "opening and cleaning duties" and I' m not sure if I am being impatiant(?) or we need a bigger pump. I started out with the green swamp, right now, water is balanced and it is cloudy blue, but I can see the shallow end clear and the bottom of the deep end is getting better each day. I am trying to do the BBB lifestyle!!! Thank you, this site has given me so much information and a better understanding of how our pool works!!
