Hayward Xstream Cartridge Filter

Postby ahrjmr » Wed 05 Feb, 2014 07:42

I am looking at the Hayward XStream 150sqft filter with the 1.5HP Matrix pump. Does this filter and pump turn over 57,600 gallons in 8 hours? The reason I am asking is that I was looking at a Hayward Easy Clear Cartridge filter and it stated I would be good for a 24' x 52" pool but the cartridge was only 55sqft. So how good is the information on the brochures?

Would it be feasible to install a "Gate" valve where the discharge plug is on the bottom of the filter? I want to be able to put a hose on the gate valve to divert the water coming out of the filter where I want it to go.

Hi Jim,

Your filter can handle up to 100 gallons per minute. Your pump maxes out at about 90 GPM. So yes, the equipment you have is sufficient to turn the pool over in 8 hours.

CG & Jim

I don't want to criticise but I think your calculations are incorrect as it will only turn over 43,200 gallons in 8 hours
Going by your filter and pump rates you would need an output of 120 GPM to turn the water over in 8 hours
However if the pump runs for 10 hrs 40 min instead of 8 hours you will get the correct result

Please let me know if i'm wrong
