In our previous house, we had a sand filter and it was great. Very little maintenance and overall pretty trouble free. We just moved into a new house and there is a DE filter. This looks like a relative pain the rear. I want to just swap out the filter and am looking for advice on what I need and potential pitfalls I may be unaware of. I'm definitely no expert.
What I have: Hayward DE4820 (I'm not sure it's this exact model, but the specs are the same) Hayward Super II Pump 2HP Pool is approx 20,000 gallons
I want to swap it out for a Hayward sand filter because that's what I had previously and it worked well for us. Should I just match the new sand filter's specs with our current DE filter? Is that overkill or inadequate? I am specifically looking at the Hayward S220T. The specs are less than my current filter, but it looks adequate though I admittedly don't know what I'm talking about.
