My pool is almost done. It is supposed to be filled tommorow. I just got home and noticed the PB installed a DE filter instead of a cartridge. We had agreed on a cartridge all along and never even considered a de filter. I don't know anything about them. The PB is telling me he made a mistake but that I am actually getting a better filter and will not charge me the difference if I decide to keep it. If I want to go back to the cartridge it will put off filling the pool till next week.
My questions are:
1 Am I getting a better filter? (I'm sure there are different opinions on this.)
2 what are the pros and cons?
3 is there really a cost difference?
I know you guys can't tell me what to do and ultimately I need to decide for my self but since this is my first pool and know nothing about DE filters your opinions will be greatly appreciated.
