    From the table in Hydraulics101, for your 15600 gallon pool we would recommend as minimums:
    • 2.9 sq.ft. sand filter
      228 sq.ft. cartridge filter
      44 sq.ft. DE filter

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    What does this mean in your signature? There is no way the pump is producing that much flow rate.

    Are you looking for replacement cartridges for your filter, or a new filter?
