What size quad de filter would I need if I currently have a Pentair clean &clear plus 420?
Terri S on Jan 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I am not familar with a Pentair 420, so can't answer the question. When selecting a filter, it doesn't matter what
your current filter is. It depends on these factors;
1. What size pool (in gallons/water) you have.
2. The size of plumbing in the pool.
3. The filtration pump being used (capacity/size).
4. The type of filtration desired (sand or D.E.)
5. Beyond the above, any height restrictions for opening/servicing the filter.

Certainly the folks at Pool Supply Unlimited should be able to advise you per above.
What's the dimensions of the De filter units?
A shopper on Oct 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 21 1/2" X55" with a 86" clearance required
What's the 60 or 200 sq ft represent? Does the size of pool make a difference?
Dan S on Mar 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The 60/120 sq ft, based on how many gallons does the pool hold. My pool hold about 32500 gallons I needed 60 sq ft filter. They should have chart for figuring this out. If you are replacing an old one check and see if there is a sticker somewhere still there you can read.
Bonnie K on May 8, 2017
My pool is almost 32.000 gallons and I have been quite happy with the performance of the Pentair. Keep in mind, however, that I run the pool on a continuous cycle with a multi-speed pump. The pump will run at "full" for about 3 hours per day and the rest of the time at about an average of 30%. Hope this is helpful for you!

Does this include the cartridges or are they a separate purchase?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it Does just no backwash valve needs to be purchased separately>
is this filters for 60,000 thousand gallons?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
My current DE Filter is 60 qt ft for a 25000 gal pool. Why is it recommended that I go with a 80 qt ft?
Angela L on Aug 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My pool has 30000 gallons and I was recommended to go with a 60 quad de. Hope it's ok. Pool is crystal clear.
Will this filter a 48,000 gallon in ground pool?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I prefer to go to larger filters, especially if you have a solar heating system and or significant trees in the area. Doing frequent backwashes is a must. Otherwise, this new cartridge system is much-much easier and quicker to clean. My pool is 25,000 gallons, and the 60 Sq Ft if adequate.
How often do you have to replace the cartridges?

Easy to clean
Being a single mom, I didnt have time to clean my cartridges, so I switched to this DE style cartridge filter and the cleaning time was cut in half, if not more. It takes longer to remove the nut and clamp than it does to clean the filter:

So much better
I finally switched and got rid of my sand filter that was such a headache. This DE filter is great and keeps the water very clear. The cartridge elements are very quick and easy to clean and really never backwash anymore.

No more grids!
Pool is cleaner than it ever was, this filter is as simple to service as it gets. No pressure increases, no extra running time needed. Just perfect, efficient and at a reasonable price. Won't go back to grid filters ever again.

Good filtration system
Filter works great; however, seems to need cleaning more frequently than my old filter. Disassembly of filter grids is
difficult & cumbersome.

My second pump in the last 3 months. The ones they replaced gave great service for 14 years. Can't beat it!

Pentair Quad DE 60 Pool Filter
Great filter. I backwashed it yesterday for the first time, after installing it over four months ago. Easy maintenance. Only problem is the pressure gauge sticks, so the pressure can be higher than the gauge reads until you tap it.
