Good morning, this is my first post on the forum.
As the title says I have an Intex AGP and the supplied cartridge filter pump failed. While they are going to replace the pump I have to say I'm not that happy with the unit even when it is working. Last summer I was never able to get the pool filtered properly. I have a lot of iron and sediment in the well water I used to fill with. Using a chelating agent turns the water from merely murky to a dark brown and this cartridge filter will never get it all cleaned out. I am having to wash the filter daily.
So I'm looking to replace that cartidge filter pump combo with a better option. From what I've read a 1 hp DE filter would probably be the best solution.Or is it too good and likely to become clogged easily with all the iron sediment? From my reading a sand filter does not filter anything smalled than 40 microns. I'm a little confused. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
