Hi guys. I have an intex pool and upgraded the filter to the krystal clear sand filter a while ago. I’m Now upgrading my pool and getting a bigger one that comes also with a krystal clear sand filter. I was thinking of installing both of them separately on the new pool as it is quite large (24ftx12ft). Any thoughts on that?

My thoughts in no particular order. Twice as many potential leaks. Higher energy cost. My 12X32 does okay with one filter. I only run my pump two hours a day so I could just go up to four hours and get twice the filtering. More electrical to run -- two pumps would likely overload one circuit.

And I almost forgot: welcome! :wave:
