I'm looking into getting a 33'x54" Sharkline Matrix AGP, but from what I have been reading here on the forum it seems people are recommending a 2 speed pump and a larger filter than what is typically sold with the pool. I definitely like the idea of the lower cost of running the pump at a lower speed and using the higher speed for cleaning which really makes better sense to me and a larger filter for better filtration.
I was just hoping someone could recommend a good pump/filter combination for me. I believe the pool will be approx. 25,000 gallons and I would prefer to run it on 110 versus 220 power and using a sand filter. I don't mind paying a little bit more if it will do a better job filtering and be cheaper to run in the long run.
The pump and filter choices that they show packaged with the pool on poolsupplyworld.com are listed below but the pump is only a 1 speed and the filter seems smaller based on other recommendations I've seen;
Sand Filter & Pool Pump Combinations
Waterway 520-5200-6S ClearWater 16" Sand Filter Above Ground Pool System with Hi-Flo Single Speed Pump
Waterway 520-5220-6S ClearWater 19" Sand Filter Above Ground Pool System with Hi-Flo Single Speed Pump
What other pumps or filters would those with more experience in this area recommend?
