Been reading alot of great info on this site for a couple of years and have converted to bbb method and it works great. When we got our 28' round pool 5 years ago they set us up with a 1 1/2hp pump and sand ball that holds 150lb of sand. We just tried to return the second sand filter due to cracking like the first one did 2 years ago. Due to pro rated warranty the new filter was going to cost about $160. The brand is Waterway. My question is should I try another Waterway filter or get a whole new system by Hayward or someone else? From what I have read the pump is really bigger than what I need maybe this is the time to get the right equipment. I am looking for pump hp recommendations and sand filter size recommendations, also brand. Thanks for any info you can give me.
p.s. both filters cracked in a seam close to the top of the bowl, a waterway guy I spoke to on the phone said I had to high of pump pressure, 12-15psi, and the pump was to big, but it all came with the pool as a kit, and the pool store says thats how they sell all their pools. Very tired of dealing with both of them.
