I have a 23K gallon inground pool where the original 28 year old sand filter's laterals are broken. Its a side mount FOXX filter and I can't find replacement parts.
I'm located in Central NJ.
The pump is in good condition 1 1/2 HP.
I want to replace the sand filter with the same since I never had any problems with sand.
I have the following questions:
1. What do people recommend for a replacement sand filter?
2. Top mount or Side Mount?
3. Since I can live with the sand leakage into the pool for awhile, would you replace it this season or at the beginning of next season?
4. Where is a good place to purchase it?
Thanks for any guidance and insight.
