Well I am getting ready to open my pool this season and I am a little worried about how much time is left on this older sand filter. According to the only place I have been able to even find a picture of this thing, the filter was dicontinued in 1988.

The pool was installed in 1986 (16x32 Inground) and is plumbed with 1 1/2 Poly Pipe from what I can tell. I purchased my house last August and took possesion of it this past November. When I did my home inspection the pool was crystal clear and all the equipment was running. The pum is a 3/4 HP Hayward replaced in 2009. I did notice a small drip comming out of the return line at the 90 degree elbow after the inline clorinator. I am assuming I can just cut out the section of pipe and use a coupler the replace the small section.
I circled the clamp with the small leak under it. So that was actually two questions, does anyone have any experience with this model of sand filter?
