I didn't get too much feed back in my last thread, but since that time, I've made some decisions. If you didn't see that thread and are interested in helping, here it is http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...103#post690103
I'm 99.9% sold on the Pentair SF-N2-1A SuperFlo Energy Efficient Two Speed Inground Pump with Switch, 1 HP.
The next question is which filter? DE or Cartridge. DE sounds like the better filter for quality, but it also sounds much more expensive to maintain. The upfront cost of a DE is more than a Cartridge, and the DE requires a powder load on a monthly basis whereas with the Cartridge I can replace it yearly (if that) and just rinse it when needed.
It also seems like my chlorine bill will go down with a DE, but I'm not sure. Even then, I'm still buying powder.
Lastly, since I'm going with a pentair pump, is it easier to use a pentair filter or is install easy no matter the brand matching? As far as filter goes, it seems hayward may be the way to go.
Any advice would help
