I just bought a repo home from a flipper. He put craigslist equipment on the pool in order to sell it. the original equipment was stolen. The filter is way undersized and has a blow by issue. I'm live in the mountains outside Yosemite so leafs dust and dirt are a big issue. I will be purchasing a very large DE filter. Most likely either the Hayward progrid 72 or the Pentair FNS 60. Rotary or pull back wash valve?
The pool is about 28,000 gal with 2 sheer descents and no spa with 2" plumbing.
I'm looking to replace the pump as well. the current one leaks and cavitates. There is a lot of hype of pumps. Both Pentair and Hayward have so many the choice is staggering. Even if one considers only the VS pumps. Any advice?
I'm also leaning toward a SWC but again the choices are staggering.
Who is the best online retailer for prices?
Thanks for the advice.
