    Question Above ground summer escapes pool w/ inflatable ring top

    How a blue inflatable pool. It's a summer escapes pool with a. Inflatable ring. It's about 3 ft deep. Had a cheap filtering system it came. I am wondering can I put a sand filter on this type of pool? It does not have a skimmer. Any input would be appreciated? The old filter just went out.

    Yes you can. If you get the smaller intex sand filter it has the adapters with it to go to the fittings already included with your pool.

    There is a lady I know that has a intex crystal clear sand filter she wants to sell me for $70. It does 2800 gph. Is that too big you think?

    That's a lot a filter honestly. Mine is a 20x48 and I'm using a 3,000. I would be concerned with that much. I bought the smaller one that I think would be perfect for your pool on clearance from academy sports for $130 and it had the adapters you would need. I had to take it back as it was too small for my pool. It's like 1100 gph

    I would do that 12" on Walmart for $117 as that is the one I got for $130.

    Ok I checked that out. I could do that. Now I have 2 spots on my summer escapes pool where the old filter hooked into. I am wondering if the hoses off the new sand filter will plug into my existing spots or if this is going to take some king of plumbing knowledge.
