Question about Hayward Pro Series 18" Above Ground Pool Sand Filter System with Pump
I have a 20" in diameter 7 position multi port valve sand filter that has a crack around the top. My pool is a 24' round above ground. I have a 1 1/2 HP motor. A friend has a sand filter from an 18' foot pool that she will sell me. I know there is a big difference in the amount of water for these 2 size pools. Would this work without putting strain on my new motor or other equipment?
The volume of a 24x4 pool is 1809.6 cubic feet [Volume=pi x radius squared x height, or V=3.14159 x(12x12)x4], and the 18 foot pool is 1017.9 cubic feet [V=3.14159 x (9x9)x4]. When you multiply the number of cubic feet by the conversion factor of 7.48 gallons per cubic foot, you come out with 13,536 gallons versus 7614 gallons. Since the volume is nearly double, I don't think the other filter will cut it for very long. Is the top that is cracked in the valve body or the top part of the tank? It might be cheaper and easier to just replace the defective part in the long run than to use an undersized filter that will die prematurely.
