I'm in the final stages of my pool build (See thread "My Pool Build - St. Charles, MO") and am down to selecting my filter size. I'm debating between the Clean and Clear Plus 420, and the Clean and Clear 200. The money difference is not a primary concern.
As I see it:
Pro's of 420:
-Larger square footage, less cleaning
Con's of 420:
-4 Cartridges = more $ when I replace them and more cleaning at the end of the season
-Lid perhaps a bit more difficult to get off
-Takes up more space on my pad
Info on my pool can be seen in my signature. I live in Missouri and therefore only get about 5 months of usable time and I a moderate amount of large debris...
Please weigh in with your opinion... 420 or the 200.
