    27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    I've been perusing the forums in search of what pump and filter I should use. I just recently bought a home and acquired a 27` round pool that is LOADED with leaves, but that is another thread all together. For now, I want to get this pump/filter purchase nailed down since somebody apparently stole the old setup. Here is what I know.

    Gallons - around 17k (well water)

    Run - The deck for the pump/filter is located directly next to the pool under a deck w/plenty of access. So maybe 2-3 feet.

    Setup - It is a standard AG setup with the skimmer located up high on the side of the pool.

    Also I will add that this pool is surrounded by nearby trees. It probably gets half a days worth of direct sunlight on a clear day.

    Please let me know if you need any more info.


    Here is what I am considering:

    SAND FILTER

    Hayward S244T Pro Series Sand Pool Filter 24" With Valve

    PUMP

    Hayward Max-Flo XL Pool Pump 3/4HP - SP2305X7


    I was trying to stick to a $1000 budget for getting this pool up and running, but after looking at the cost of these 2 items alone, I may have been a little too optimistic...or cheap. Thanks for any and all replies.

    I will just tell you what I have and works great for my 33' round pool:

    Clear Water Waterway sand filter 26" and a Waterway 1.5 hp variable speed pump.

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    Thank you for your response. I'll look into both of those items. I just want to make sure that what I am looking at isn't overkill or simply the wrong type for my pool. I've read all the pool school info, but I'm afraid to make a decision until I hear from some veterans like yourself Kim. My test kit comes Thursday, so I'm hoping to get this part locked down so I can start testing, cleaning, and hopefully swimming!

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    The filter cannot be overkill. The bigger the better! NO one has ever said "I wish I had a smaller filter". The pump........that is what came with my pool so that is what I use. It moves the water great. I have not had any problems with my pool since it was put up.

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    and then you have guys like me I went overkill, But I am planning on going inground with the same setup in 5 to 10 years, and I have the ability to expand...

    this looks like a great little 2 speed 1hp pump for $211 8.8 amps on high and 2.6 amps on low
    Amazon.com : 1 HP 2-Speed 3450/1725 RPM, 115 volts Above Ground Pool Pump - Waterway brand - With large Debris Ba : Swimming And Pools : Patio, Lawn Garden

    and this looks like a good filter for $290
    Amazon.com : Hayward Pro Series 24 Inch In Ground Pool Sand Filter : Swimming Pool Sand Filters : Patio, Lawn Garden

    That puts you at 500 for filter and pump

    You would have to get the correct unions to fit the pump and filter and hard pipe it to the pool

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    Ok. I made a few adjustments hoping to save a little and still have an efficient setup. My TF-100 test kit came in the mail yesterday, so I am REALLY excited to get started on this pond. Thank you to everyone for your replies.

    Please let me know if I am on the right track before I purchase

    I recently purchased a home that came with a 27' round pool. It gets direct sun until about 2:30-3 daily. The pool is surrounded by trees. I've already purchased my TF-100 pool kit in preparation of getting this beauty blue again, which will be a long road. After reading through the forums, this is what I'm considering. Thanks for any and all help.

    Welcome! You've done the single most important part already - ordering that TF-100. You will love it, and it will pay for itself. Really, until it comes in and you post some test results, there's not much we can do right now unless you have a specific question about your water condition or equipment. Since you mentioned "turning your water blue again", I'm assuming it's cloudy or green perhaps? If that's the case, please take a moment to read the two links below titled "SLAM" and "Chlorine/CYA Chart". Those are key pieces of information for you to follow.

    In the meantime, if you have any other questions, please let us know and we'll be glad to assist. Have a great day!

    Welcome to TFP!

    Ok, while you wait for your awesome test kit get the leaf rake and scoop all the debris out of your pool. It will make the SLAM go much faster and use less chlorine/bleach.

    My question is:

    Is this pump and filter sufficient for my 27' round pool?

    But yes it is definitely full of leaves and amphibians. I got lucky and the pool did have a winter cover on it, so it did save me some work scooping leaves, but it had some holes in it, so I know that isn't where the story ends. I haven't taken the cover off yet, but I move in this week and plan on taking it off. I'll start another thread pertaining to cleaning the pool, but for now I wanted to make sure my equipment will be efficient. Thanks!

    My test kit was the first thing I bought when we bought the house about 2 1/2 weeks ago haha, so it's already in my posession. I also did buy a leaf rake right away...actually bought 3 because the first one broke 5 minutes into using it. I haven't purchased ANY chemicals as of yet, but thats only because I'm still a few days maybe nights of scooping leaves and sticks out of the bottom of the pool.

    Pump is ok, filter could be a little bigger.

    Sounds like you are all set to go!

    I will be reading this thoroughly while waiting for my pump/filter to arrive. Thanks! Also, I will jump up to the 300 lb filter to be on the safe side.

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    Another quick question about this topic. I've been looking for a 300 lb sand filter and everything I find says it's for in ground pools. Is this ok to use?

    Re: 27 round AG Pool Pump and Filter Question

    Does the filter come with a pump? If so, the "in ground" is likely referring to the pump. It is fine to use an in ground pump on AGP, but not the other way around. I haven't seen a filter that can only be used on an IGP.

    It does not come with a pump. It is stand alone on Amazon.
