I know there is a similar post, but I have a variation on my questions. I want to have an automatic crawler(or use a vacuum) that vacuums the bottom of the pool. I want the debris to go into a filter system that can handle larger debris. I prefer to change a basket rather than keep paying for new cartridges. This system would be inline before an Intex SWG cartridge filter/pump.
Also setting up a solar water heater system on a by-pass system around the SWG. Can use a 1/2hp pump for this line.
If I can't use a basket and must use a cartridge, are people cleaning the cartridges and reusing them?
I have an Intex easy set above ground 1100 gal pool.
