    Identify this Hayward Filter

    I'm looking to get this. I have a 24' round pool (roughly 14,000 gallons). The filter I have (I was told) is too small. I'm supposed to have a 2.6sq ft filtration rate. The filter I have is only a 1.2 sq ft.

    13,500 gallon above ground round pool. Vinyl Liner. Hayward S244T 3.1 cu ft sand filter. Hayward Powerflo 1HP pump (single speed induction). HTH 6-way test kit.

    It's an older Hayward, but you can likely still get parts. It should be more than plenty of filter and might be a good buy at the right price. If too high, I would get a new one if you have that option. I agree that 1.2 is too little for your pool. I'd want more.

    I have a larger version of that one, it came with my pool, seems to work fine. If you get it be sure to empty the sand out before moving it, do so carefully to avoid damaging the laterals.
