What size sand filter do I need for a 27 above ground pool?
Considering this, what size sand filter do I need for my pool?
Another rule of thumb is to buy 1.5 sq ft of filter area per 10,000 gallons of pool water. The 3.1 sq ft sand filter (24” tank) is the standard size for most inground pools. Larger pools, (over 30,000), should use a 4.9 sq ft. sand filter (30” tank).
Beside above, how do you size an above ground pool filter? Read on to learn how to calculate the proper size for your above ground pool filter.
- Step 1 - Measure the Size of Your Pool.
- Step 2 - Calculate the Gallons to Be Filtered in Eight Hours.
- Step 3 - Determine the Maximum Flow Rate.

what size pump do I need for my above ground pool?
For round above ground pools up to 24 ft. ( pools with less than 15,300 gallons) use a 1 HP pump. For round above ground pools over 24 ft. (pools with more than 15.300 gallons) use a 1.5 HP pump.
Should you run your pool pump all the time?
Although it's generally recommended that all the pool water undergo filtration every 24 hours, the pump does not need to run all the time. If your pool is in constant use, you may need to run the pump for up to eight hours per day, frequently checking the water clarity and chemical balance.
