We recently moved and had a 36K gallon pool with Hayward DE ProGrid 60 cu/ft at our previous home.
We are building a pool at our new house, 36k gallons as well.
The selected pool builder left the option open for filter selection.
Pentair 36" diameter sand filter with glass media, which he highly recommends..
Or a Pentair 60 cu/ft DE filter.
He is quite adamant that I would be happier with the sand filter, but I had 9 years of clear water from my DE filter on the last pool.
Am I stuck in old times preferring DE?
Are sand filters with Glass media really able to filter the same or better +/-5 Microns?
