    Help me pick a new filter please

    Hello everyone. I am new and want to thank everyone for all the information you have taken the time to post. We installed the pool last week and everything is great except the filtering. I know from reading this forum I have to replace the filter and pump that came with the pool. I found a DE on craigslist and am wondering if I can make this work. I will also have to replace the pump and am asking for advice on both!

    Welcome to TFP!

    That filter will be fine assuming it is in good condition. For the pump, look for a two speed pump, ideally a smaller one, say 1 HP.
