    Tree fell on our AGP, opportunities!

    We have a 24' x 52' AGP that we had installed not even two years ago. A tree fell on it a few weeks ago and completely destroyed the plumbing and dented the wall. Although our new Hayward SuperFlo matrix pump survived! I had just installed it too the previous day and haven't even had a chance to run it! It replaced a speck pump, but both have similar ratings.

    So we are having a new one built, and I went ahead and bought a Hayward in-ground pro series tank for our pool, and will be running it with our Matrix. Our old filter was a 21 inch one and this one is a 24. Will that be significantly better? Please any tips would be appreciated!

    I think that pump is the Power-Flo right? The Superflo is from Pentair.

    A bigger filter is usually better, it will just reduce the frequency of having to clean it. For a 13.5k pool, a 21" sand filter is fine. If your new pool is bigger, the 24" will certain not hurt anything.

    My pool has about the same gallons as yours does and performs well with a 22" sand filter.

    I know Isaac! They are going to have to tear down our current one and they will start construction when they do on the new one. So my setup will be a 24 inch sand filter with a 1.5hp 2 sped powerflo matrix pump. That sound good?
