Can use some help, especially those who live to calculate head feet, etc.
This will be the 9th summer in our house and it's time to replace some equipment. I'm looking to get a new pump, sand filter and cleaner.
I have a 16x32 in-ground vinyl pool, 4 ft to 8 ft., @ 21,000 gallons. Current pump is a Hayward with no plate,e tc. so I'm guessing it's a 3/4 HP Super Pump. Filter is an 18.5" Jacuzzi Splash-Pak and cleaner looks like the original Hayward Pool Vac. A layout of the pool and with footage, etc. can be found at the URL in my signature below). Missing is the fact that all plumbing is 1.5" PVC.
For a pump I've been going back and forth between the 3/4 HP single speed and the 1 HP Two-Speed Hayward Super Pump. Main concern is enough suction for the cleaner.
For a filter I want to stay with a sand filter (Hayward Pro Series) to which I add DE from time to time. Just need the right size based on pump.
And lastly, the cleaner. I've been looking at The Poolcleaner and just need to know whether I need the 2-wheel or 4-wheel version.
Thanks in advance for your help and glad to have found this site. I recognize some of the names from another site (that I can't find my password for!). And this is something I planned to do last year but didn't and really limped along last year and August into September I had a real difficult time as I had filter leaks, broken Jandy Valve handle (need this also), loud and barely working pump, etc. Figured I "stimulate the economy" and get ready for the summer at the same time :P
