but why would you want to do this? is it under sized?
is cartridge or cartridges old?
do you have to clean to often?
do you clean with cleaner chemical and soak it or just rinse with garden hose?

they can and do work well.

I changed my cartridge filter to a sand filter on an above ground pool, my pool is 18ft round by 3ft high.

I find the sand filter hundred times better than cartridge

yes, if you don't mind running out a backwash hose every time you need to backwash. how about buying a large cartridge filter? they are easier to use and will give you less headaches in the long run
