    I Should Have Listened First Place! - Upgraded Pump & Intex Auto Cleaner Saves Day!

    Wow - what a difference!! Got my 2800 GPH Sand Filter/Pump changed out Thursday - immediately saw a difference in my "sand/dust on the floor" problem described in my earlier posts.

    Then yesterday got the Intex Auto Cleaner hooked up and after running a total of about 6 hours so far - and some use of the pool in there also - AMAZING!

    I would say that 99% of the sand/dust is gone and the water is crystal clear!

    There is still small amounts that accumulate at the seems - especially in the corners - but given our wind/dust situation here my guess is I will never get it 100% clean - still will need to do some brushing.

    But soooo nice - I can't even believe Intex sends out that 1200 GPH pump with a pool this big.

    Question - is there any reason I can't just leave the cleaner in there and attached always? Except for times when we will have multiple people in the pool? It mostly is just my wife and I that will be using it and we can work around it - especially if the pump isn't running - and even if it is no biggie. We will likely also unattached it when we want to use our "fountain" until I feel comfortable enough to do a "T" set up to run the fountain all the time.....

    But in general - can I just leave the cleaner in there?

    I leave mine in 24/7 even when swimming mine and I do believe yours is all plastic so no worries...
