Please Help!!! Pool was installed 3 years ago with a 1.5 HP pump and a Black Diamond filter (don't know size, label wore off). The filter never seemed to work well. Filter was always dirty (we cleaned often) and pool was never clear. We've seen smaller pools with bigger filters than ours and often thought we needed a bigger filter and/or pump.
So, long story short...Vacuum sucked up a pair of goggles and the pump no longer works. We would like to replace entire system but aren't sure what size pump/filter we need. Local stores only want to sell us what they have in stock and we are a bit leery since we feel "taken" by seller of our pool.
What size pump/filter should we get? We don't have a preference of sand or cartridge. Whatever will work the best.
