I have decided to replace our sand filter ( it is old and leaks a bit around the pressure gauge ) with a cartridge filter.
I am doing a lot of reading on how to size it and want to get some feed back and a bit of help.
- in ground pool, vinyl liner
- salt water generator
- 12,000 gallons ( best estimate )
- 3/4 horse pump
- current plumbing is all 1.5"
I found an article that suggests that I need between 100 sq ft and 200 sq ft of filter area for a pool/pump this size.
What I found that seems to match this is: http://www.poolplaza.com/P-HAY-05-162.html which is a Hayward Star-Clear Plus Cartridge Filter , 120 Sq. Ft., 2 FIP (C12002).
Does anyone have experience with this filter and or see an error in my approach?
