    help me choose sand filter

    need advice on which one to choose and diffferences.

    Currently I am thinking of purchasing a pentair tagelus ta60 or a sand dollar sd60 I currently have a 1.5 hp pump which i have been told by other forum member that it is too big. Will a 1 hp pump work with these filters.

    whats the difference between these too filter I know the tanks material is different one is i think thermoplastic and the other being the tagelus being fiberglass and thermoplastic. what about side vs top mount ?

    Tagelus is a little more expensive is it worth buying that one. I am in florida so i do not have to deal with any cold weather issues with the tank.

    Pentair also has a sand filter with what they call clear pro tech seems like nobody has any good info on those new tanks and they want quite a bit more money for those which have different laterals with smaller holes.
