Just got my first pool installed....a 24' above ground. It came with the best pump and filter system teddy bear sells for this. Not real familiar with how it works yet but it has DE fingers and is supposed to keep the water real clear. That is gonna be a challenge for the filter....and got me to thinking it would be a great idea to put a prefilter in line.....between the leaf/lint trap and the pump filter. Ideally it would be unpowered....just a cannister that hold a cheap filter good for, say 50 micron size particles. Weed all that **** out before the water hits the DE filter which supposedly is good for particles down to 5 microns. Pluses if the cannister is clear so I can see whats going on in there. Just switch out the filter when it starts looking crappy. Would plan on doing that every couple of weeks if the filters were cheap enough.
So I looked on the web for such an item and cannot find one. Due to my inexperience in what I am doing, ended up looking thru 160 pgs of ebay ads of pool pumps and filters and finding no satisfaction.
Guess I could build what I am thinking of. Get some cheap filters (like Intex "B"?) and build a cannister to fit, but I'd rather buy one ready made.
Anyone know of such a thing and where to go get it? Thx!
