Thread: New larger pump. Now vacume debris bag rips.

    New larger pump. Now vacume debris bag rips.

    I have an Intex 18 x 52 agp and replaced the pump w a slightly larger one. Now the Intex vacume debris bags rip from the uncreased pressure. I have bought new ones and the same thing happens. I can't find heavier duty bags and they seem to have a proprietary ring and attachment.

    I suppose you're referring to this one HERE huh? I'm not sure if you can make a customized bag to replace the factory-sized on that's attached to the ring. What about trying to decrease the pressure slightly? Not sure if that's even a viable option. In the end, you may have to just purchase a new, aftermarket vacuum to replace that Intex (bag) version. There are plenty out there to chose from without breaking the bank too badly. Still, maybe another Intex owner will have a suggestion or two for you.

    Yes that is the filter bag. I don't think I can reduce the pressure as it is a single speed pump.
