Doughboy Silica II filter specs

Postby was1103 » Thu 12 Apr, 2007 00:00

Does anyone know or can tell me where to find the specs for this filter? Such as what size pump is required in h/power and / or gph?

I don't know this filter.

However to derive the flow rate:

Measure the filter at the shoulder across, typical sizes are 24,25,28 or 30 inches.

Let me know what it is and I'll calculate a minimum flow rate for you and backwash flowrate.
