    HAYWARD S166T HIGH RATE SAND FILTER

    I know someone who is selling this filter used and for very little money. I know nothing of these filters and have a few questions.

    1 - would this filter be any good for a pool that is 18'x48" in size?
    2 - what size pump would be recommended for this size filter?

    Cheers

    That filter should be fine for a small pool like yours. I would look for a 2 speed 3/4 hp pump, or a 2 speed 1 hp pump if you can't find a 3/4 hp model.

    Depends on your plumbing but you'll probably get 1800 to 3000 gph on high. I wouldn't worry about that though.
