I am in need of a new filter. The cartridge filter I currently have
for my inground pool is at it's end of it's life. The casing is also
showing wear, on the bottom there are 3 holes that leak water between
the high-pressure and low-pressure side of the cartridges.
On top of that, I hate opening up the thing to clean the cartridges.
When my house was build and there wasn't much vegetation around, it
wasn't needed very often, but now I DO need to clean it more often
since there's more trees and shrubs losing leaves that go in the pool.
so, I was thinking about a sandfilter. my specs are;
17000 gallon inground pool, 90 feet perimeter, 1.5 hp motor, 2 inch
someone suggested the TA-60 from pentair. it is supposed to have a 60
gpm flowrate and cycles 28,800 gallons in 8 hours.
Next step up is the TA-100 which cycles 48000 gallons in 8 hours.
What is the best choice ? Is the TA-60 big enough ?
This is in Arizona, mid-summer the temperature of the water can go as
high 95 degrees.
I'm pretty good with keeping the chemicals balanced. Never had algea,
always clear water. replace it every other year since you never really
get rid of any water and the TDS build up. The pool isn't used much.
At some point I would also like to install a salt system to chlorinate
Any advise is appreciated.
