We bought a house which already has a 10 years old AG pool. We decided to change few components of it like the discolored liner, dead pump, and sand filter. I already have the 2 first and now looking for the sand filter. The actual filter is a Hayward Pro Series S210TR. It is a top mounted valve which is not practical because the deck is low, height is around 40''. At this point, I decided to change for a side mounted valve sand filter.
So 2 questions:
- is it ok to use rated inground sand filter as an above ground sand filter: I guess for the few posts I've read
- what do you think of this sand filter: Pentair Triton TR60 with these specs:
Effective Filtration Area (sf): 3.14
Flow Rate (gpm): 63
8 Hr: 30240 10 Hr: 37800 12 Hr: 45360
Sand required: 325lbs
Thanks in advance for your!
