    Hello from West Texas

    I've had an above ground pool for a couple of years now. I stopped paying other people for chemical care of my pool and started it myself last year. I'm now looking to switch to a sand filter as I know it's much less work and better filtration. Looking forward to reading threads and finding ideas as well as maybe sharing one or two.

    Howdy WxTx40!

    Your pool filter *may* just be undersized.....but cartridge filters have a lot of positive attributes. They usually work really well....perhaps yours has a problem? Have you cleaned the cartridges lately?

    Sand filters work fine, but generally a bit slower to clear a pool if it has problems.
