I guess that I'm back in the market for a new filter for my above ground pool. I just went out and found that my Pentair Meteor 20" system has cracked along the seam in the filter and is spraying water. Not a lot but I assume it will get a lot worse pretty quickly. I didn't think that I'd be in the market this soon (it's only about 4 years old) so I haven't been keeping up with what's the latest and greatest. I've been very happy with a sand filter (using Zeolite instead of sand) as to water clarity and it's not hard to backwash every now and then.
Anyhow, would anyone recommend anything other than another sand filter with Zeolite and why? Thanks for any input!
(BTW, is anything made to last anymore? The Pentair Meteor was not cheap and it lasted just a little over 5 years! Actually, I bought the system 5 years ago and the tank failed during the first season. The tank that's splitting now is a replacement for the original one that the dealer replaced under warranty. So this tank is about 4 years old!)
