    HELP>>> DE filter and pump options

    Sorry to start another thread but I have narrowed down my new system to a DE setup for my 21ft round AGP. Now I have a couple of options. There is a Pentair DE system. Comes with the tank, and 1hp Optiflow pump W/twist lock cord.

    Now the next is the Hayward EC40 with the 1hp Matrix pump.

    There is also a Starite system, but I believe it is a little to big for my pool.

    Anyone have any of these set ups? I am fimilar with the Hayward because my local pool store has this on the floor. I have not seen the pentair in person yet. Decisions, decisions!

    My two cents would be go for the Pentair or Sta-Rite. I've had much better luck with Pentair filters and pumps.

    I have an EC 50 with my 21 round, see my sig for details. I have had zero issues with it in 7 seasons. I really enjoy the clear water I get!
