The ability to move the discharge from horizontal to vertical was a real help and time saver when plumbing in the pump to an existing system. Pulling, cleaning and reinstalling cartridges is just a five minute job, but it does have to be done on a regular basis. Featuring a contemporary design that adds beauty to any backyard, this is the perfect swimming pool to entertain family and friends all summer long. . The filters that come with the easy set pools get the job done, but do not come close to a real sand filter. I will say there was one small disappointment, the pump did not come with the sand for the system, however, we were able to find the sand at our local Menards for a reasonable price! Our Intex 16x48 pool came with the standard pump that uses the filters , and let me tell you this was a nightmare. The set up was easy and fit the Coleman 16 x 48 pool fittings.
Hopefully Intex will soon approve my 2nd claim with the date on. The strainer basket provides easy-cleaning, and prolongs the life of the sand. Within one day, the chemical levels were perfect. Pumps keep the water circulating and help keep water from turning green. No more fighting every week to keep it up to proper levels. It's been two weeks and I still don't have a part or a working pump. Not to tell you the amount of chemicals we had to use daily and still never stayed clean.
We used the pump that came with the pool for our first pool. InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R. Low energy setting still gave amazing pool circulation. The filters used in the Intex filter pump are made from pleated Dacron a synthetic polyester so depending on the type of particles they are dealing with they should be able to be rinsed and reused many times before needing replaced. We discovered that the pump system that came with the pool needed some replacement parts which we were finding it difficult to locate what we needed. This pump has allowed me more time to enjoy the pool.
I say if you keep the water clean and moving the pump will pay for itself in time and very little chemicals are needed. A pool pump comes in a standard single speed but can also come in dual speed, variable speed, and energy saving models. We are using far less chemicals than the past 2 summers. This was our second go-around with an above ground pool. Will finally be able to vacuum the pool using the pump and not a garden hose tool! Completely satisfied with this purchase and have recommended to a co-worker who has same size pool.
I vacuum the pool in a fraction of the time now. And forget hooking a vacuum to one of those low-powered pumps. Would certainly order from them again. Even better days in the shade with more money in your pocket. Hope this helps you out. No one locally carried this pump. What Owners Like An incredibly quite pump but then this really is one of the Cadillacs of the pump world.
I have never had such a clean pool. I was originally looking at higher capacity paper filter pumps from intex, but have to replace the filters or clean them was too much hassle. It is equivalent to systems like Hayward and Pentair and is vastly superior to what Intex provides with their systems. Awesome service and the price was the lowest available anywhere on the internet or in my local stores. We considered a sand filter pump instead because of how much iron is in our well water. Very disappointed in this company going down in quality! I have the Intex 16x48 Ultra and the pump that comes with it was just not doing the job. For Intex pools less than 15,000 gallons, we are recommending Game Sand Pro 50 Filter System.
Also you will find pre-built packages that includes Pool Pump and Filters Combos, so you will order all in one transaction and save money. Intex had to change the metal on these, never did we have this problem in the past. Over the standard pump that came with the pool this is a superstar! A cartridge filter system with new filters installed can clear out particles down to 10 microns. I used this on a 12x30 Intex pool. All the Intex sand filter and cartridge filter pump systems have been reviewed. Despite what Intex says this system does not circulate the entire pool, we get a circle in the middle of the pool that is clean to the bottom and the water is clear but the two outer ends never gets circulated and we always wind up with algae growth and eventually if we're not dumping chlorine in it and vacuuming once or twice a week the water will turn green.
I new prior to purchasing pool would need a better pump. Read reviews, we aren't the only ones, this is alot of money to us to spend for one year of swimming. Works great for vacuuming also. Additional 3 or 4 year available. As the filter wears they obviously become less efficient.
