Okay...so we got the new pool liner installed over the weekend. That will have to be it's own post lol. But it's in and I think successful this time
The pool is an older Lomart 15x30 above ground that came with our house.
We are trying to determine whether to use the stuff that was here...IF it works, not sure it was properly winterized, versus the stuff from our old pool.
Here is what was with the pool:
Hayward Pro Series High Rate Sand Filter
Not sure of the size but it's smaller than our other filter. It holds 100lbs of sand if that helps.
These are the specs:
Effective filter area 1.4 sq ft
Filter rate 25 sq gpm/ sq ft
Design flow rate 35 gpm
Max working pressure 50 psi
Pump - Hayward Power Flo LX 1.5 HP
Here is what we brought with us that we got from a friend who also had a 15x30 pool, we used it on an 18' round pool.
Clear Master Plus 19 Sand Filter Uses 150 lbs sand
Design Flow rate 40 (assume gpm)
Pump- Pentair Dynamo 2HP
Not sure what I am looking at as far as what should go with what for my size pool. We also have an Aqualuminator light but it needs a new bulb. Anyone know how hard it is to replace that with the pool full? Funds are a bit tight with having to buy the liner, salt, stabilizer, etc. so I'd like to wait on the bulb but will have to go ahead and install the old one since it serves as the return. Oh and we also have an Intex SWG. It worked wonderfully with the 18' pool, hoping it will work with this bigger pool.
