    Thoughts on this Filter/Pump

    Anyone have one of these or dealt with this company?

    I'd prefer this to similarly priced sand systems. Just easier to handle when the season is over.

    Well, I'm not a fan of the smaller cart filters - the bigger the filter the better. Not a huge pool so you can maybe get by with it just fine. I was trying to find something on the vendor for you through a search but no luck so far. You can try too - use the Googlesearch feature in the bottom left corner.

    Now as for ease - I only had limited firsthand experience with sand and DE filters until this year - now that I've had experience with all three I don't think the sand would be as much of a pain as you think it might.

    Thanks for your input. I guess I was thinking along the lines of the sand being a pain to replace when the time came.

    In all actuality, you have to replace the sand so infrequently that it's really not an issue. I know the conventional wisdom is to replace it every so many years but that's not needed.

    Having said that, that looks like a pretty good system for your pool.
