What are people's feelings on the best in-ground pool filter for a large pool?
My pool is 40x20 with a 10x20 lap lane extension and will need a new filter. The pool company recommends a DE filter (Jandy) and another person that is in the pool business recommended to me a cartridge filter. He says that they are much improved from older versions, require no backwashing, and do a very good job of filtering. Just trying to get some opinions on the pluses/minuses of the different fitler types and brands. Thanks ps- its a vinyl liner pool with a heater. there are trees near by. And I just had a salt water system installed. If any of that plays into the equation. Thanks again

DE filters down to micron sized particles so it picks up dust... More

the trick with filter is to clean them on a regular basis regardless of how much you used the pool... best way is to have 2 sets so when one is being cleaned the other one is working to maintain your water.
