Although this is NOT a "home repair" question, I can find nowhere else to
I recently purchased a home that had an inground vinyl lined pool. Over the
summer I struggled to keep it clean but eventually a hired technician
stated that the filter "cartridges" needed replacing.
As the pool is now closed for the winter I have time to do some research.
What I determined was that the two replacement filters (Sta-rite System3)
even over the Internet will cost approx $400 or more.
I then thought that a sand filter would be a better solution to this
Therefore, can anyone with a pool comment on ever installing a sand filter
and how it performed relative to a paper cartridge or something else? If
anyone has installed a sand filter, what was the "average" cost of the
device and also the installation and maintenace charges?
Any advice greatly appreciated.
