    Hello and welcome to TFP! Colman and Intex products are very similar in sizes and such, therefore you should have no problems replacing your band pump with the Intex pump/sand filter combo. Good luck, and have a nice weekend.

    Oh thank you so so much! You have just made my day🌴😃 I'm in Orange beach, AL and ready to swim! Do you recommend what size pump? I should have learned more before buying a pool.. But since my brain aneurysm, I'm kinda of a impulse buyer. I thought "ooooo pool! Yeah!" bought it and then was like ... Oh ****.

    For a pool your size, you have some flexibility since the pump/filter don't have to be extremely large. Still, it's always better to go slightly bigger for efficiency and hopefully less cleaning time. Here is one example of a popular Intex-type set-up: Amazon.com : Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 3000 GPH Pump Flow Rate, 110-120V with GFCI : Swimming Pool Sand Filters : Patio, Lawn Garden.

    I'm sure others will have some suggestions as well. Have a nice weekend.
