I thought these products were not allowed to be sold online, why are these ones allowed?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2020
Would this filter be good for an above ground pool 18'x33'x52"?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2020
Is this filter adequate for a 35000 gallon pool ?
A shopper on Oct 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This filter would be considered undersized in our opinion, that is a very large pool. We would recommend 30" or larger.
what is the normal life time expectancy?
Edwin Cox on Apr 16, 2022
BEST ANSWER: I am not an expert on life expectancy of Hayward S200 sand filters but I can state the facts of what I know my original filter was installed on 1991 it still works started to leak around the gasket in 2020 I changed the gasket and it still leaks so I bought an exact replacement so I didn't have to redo the plumbing it works supper I am happy with purchase, I am expecting another 30 years hope this helps
would this filter be ok for a 30000 inground pool?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Depends on what type of pump you have installed? I have a 23000 in ground and it is perfect for that size, and requires 200lbs of sand.
Is this sand filter in stock and if so how long to arrive? We live in Indiana
Tina J on Jun 22, 2021
Our Hayward S240( pool was built in 1960) we have very high pressure. Our pool is 35,000 glallons, 20 X 40. We like the Hayward that we have but it sprays water out on top. Suggestion for replacement with side mount and preferably mid section screws.?
