    Opinions needed! Sand filter reviews, questions!

    Hello fellow TFP members! I'm looking to upgrade from the Summerwaves all-in-one skimmer/pump/filter to a true sandfilter and 1hp pump. Anyone care to give me opinions on one? 17'x52 with a budget of under $250! I have looked at amazons 4500gpm sand combo with 1hp for $239, and the Game sandpro 75d for $189. I understand that bigger will give me room to grow should I upgrade pools in size or quality. I had true success last year with the tfp way because thats all I've ever used! Should I go with a better name brand? I'm at a crossroad for making a decision! THANKS MUCH! J.

    Thanks, I'm leaning toward the 4500 because it will give me more possible options to upgrade pool from 17' to 22' in a few years.
