My wife and I bought this house about 4 yrs ago. The pool has been here about 10 yrs from what iv'e heard. We have a problem with algae and debris due to a large tree that is next to the pool. In any case. Every year we open the pool it take weeks to clear up (scraping leaves off the bottom, shocking process, etc...). What we would like is to know is, if this filter and pump are the correct size for this pool. Being that it was all here when we bought the house, i never really though about it. Doesn't seem that it should take that long to clear up to me and it leaves lots of small particles in the water.
The pool is rectangle 16x32 - 4ft to 10ft - and im estimating about 24k gallons - The filter now is sand and we are consider a new DE or Cartridge filter for better filtration and perhaps a quicker turnover to clear it up faster.
Does this seem right for this size pool
you guys have been a great help in the past and any help would be greatly appreciated
