Thread: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    So far I love it and it's working great. I haven't found any good reviews of it so I made a couple of Youtube videos if anyone is interested.

    Great videos! I was thinking about getting one but wasn't sure how well they work, don't have to wonder anymore. Could you post a picture of your pump setup? I also have the 2500 pump and a 2nd spare one and Unicel filters.

    I've had one a couple of weeks and I'm loving it, especially considering it was only $49 from Amazon Prime.

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    OK - I will ask again - has anyone at all had good luck with these using the small 1200 GPH pump that comes with many of the Intex pools like ours. Seen lots of bad reviews but curious if there are any good ones also?

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    I'm pretty sure you can take the silence as a "no". OTOH, I've seen a number of people with pumps under 2000 gph complain that it doesn't work well for them.



    Sorry, but I think you're going to have to upgrade your pump if you want to use one of these.

    The Intex cartridge filters are not very effective. The good news is that their sand filters work great and are inexpensive. Lots of Intex users on TFP upgrade to the sand filter and report good things.

    I have one 1200 and one 1500 gph pump. It works well with the 1500, does not move with the 1200.

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    I have one of these on an Intex 2850GPH and the thing does wheelies in the pool. I'm going to have to add a 2nd return so I can control the flow better

    Thanks! You convinced me, I just ordered one. I do like to spend half the day cleaning the pool instead of the house, but sometimes you just want some automation. LOL

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    Here's how I hooked mine up so that I can run the robot and the regular return at the same time. Mine does wheelies too, unless I adjust the valves to shut him down a little bit.

    The line off to the left and over the top has the robot attached to it. I just close off the valve and pull him out when we're ready to swim, then throw him back in when we're done. The pool has stayed spotless. You do have to pull your ladder out or at least as close to the side as you can, or he'll get wedged behind it.

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    Here's the pics of my set up. I just added a Kokido chlorine feeder I got off Ebay for $20. Working pretty good but I had to make a new pipe for it because the one that came with it leaked. Got tired of the floater getting sucked into the skimmer.

    Re: I got the Intex Automatic Pool Cleaner

    Just put this together so I can run the robot and keep my return flow. I have to get 2 gaskets where my hoses will connect to the PVC connection cause it's loose.

    It attaches to a 2" male PVC, but as you stated, you have to add an extra 1/8" rubber washer because the difference in the threads keeps it from screwing on tight enough to keep it from leaking.

    Oops I made a 1 1/2 inch connection lol. Yes I figured I'll need some rubber washers. I will have to see if I can get an adopter from 1 1/2 to 2 inches fitting
