I have read lots and lots of post regarding this topic but would like direction accounting for the newest pumps and filters on the market. I have a 24-25,000 gal IG vinyl pool with one skimmer basket and 2- returns. Current set up is a sand filter Triton TR-50 (currently filled with Zeolite) and a 3/4 HP A.O. Smith E-Plus Pump (labeled HP=1.3?).
The sand filter is in need of replacement while the pump was replaced a couple of years ago. I am looking to replace the sand filter, possibly filled with glass media. I would also like to add a solar set up (at ground level) in the near future.
What is the minimum sand filter/pump set-up and what is the optimum?
