I currently have a Hayward s200 sand filter and am thinking of switching to a Hayward cartridge filter. My pool is 16x32 and approx. 22,000 gal. My plumbing is 1 1/2 in. What cartridge filter do you recommend? I currently have a hayward 1 HP super pump. Will I be able to continue using this pump with the cartridge filter?

I switched from sand to DE 4years ago and I am very happy with my decision. I backflush, reverse and add 1# of DE to pump. Badabing-badaboom, done. The 50# box of DE from INYOpools should last me the rest of my life.

Swtiching from sand filter to cartridge filter is a good choice, Pal. And thanks admin for confirming the pump model.

Yes, it sure will. You can use reducer fittings. Those are sold at any local hardware store.

I notice it has 2" plumbing and mine is 1 1/2". Will this still work and if it will how do I plumb it?

Mark, you can use your existing pump and Inyopools recommends the Waterway ProClean Plus 100 sqft Pool Cartridge Filter model PCCF-100 that you can view all details by clicking here.
