So i'm finally ordering my pool today. The company is giving me a choice of pump between the Powerflow LX or the Matrix. I'm going with the 180T sand filter. I'm getting a 24' ABG.
Any pros or cons to either pump? They basically look the same to me. The Matrix can discharge vertical or horizontal but I have no idea why that would matter to me. The pump/filter will be sitting beside the pool on a pad.
The Matrix looks to be more expensive, but i'm pretty sure they are giving me the choice of either. They are also giving me the choice of sand, DE, or cartridge filters. I think i'm going with sand, just because its a workhorse and I pretty much know how to backwash and deep clean it when needed.
Any advice on which pump to get?
