Because there are different types of pool pumps and filters you should speak to a pool supply store. They will help determine the size of pump you will need for the inground pools Long Island families enjoy. They will discuss how long you are going to run the pump throughout the day to help determine the pump you require. There are many factors to consider including how often you turn it on. If the pump is used eight hours, it should be bigger to be efficient in removing bacteria and particles. If you are concerned about the energy bill there are variable speed pumps designed to run full speed through the day and half speed at night.

Pool Filter Options
Be careful when purchasing sand filters as they require backwashing to clear the sand of debris. Some towns do not allow back wash of pool water onto the street. If you live in such a town, than you should consider a paper or cloth membrane cartridge filter instead. Sand filters require backwashing every two weeks or so. You will also have to clean the actual sand every two years. Sand filters should be replaced every six to seven years. Cartridge filters are lower maintenance requiring disassembling and rinsing once or twice a year.
