    Intex new sand filter & old cartridge salt water system together?

    I'm hoping someone in this way smarter than me forum, can answer a couple questions for me and won't think I'm too dumb. 😉

    I just ordered a new intex 3000 gph sand filter 28651EG.

    What does 3000 gph pump flow rate and 2450 gph system rate mean?

    Also I have an intex cs8111 model saltwater system with cartridge filter 2000 gph. Can I put these together? I would want the sand filter to be first, the cartridge filter doesn't work that well.

    Lastly could I split the intake hose and have each system separate, so I could run them at different times or together, and have them both run back together at the return.

    Looking around the forum, I've seen some of y'all do some pretty cool setups with your ABG pools. Very creative. Any ideas on this would be welcome. Thanks

    PS. I hope my I info is below, I entered it but I can't tell if it's posting on my phone. Thanks!!😃

    Welcome to TFP

    You really want only 1 pump and filter in line, I don't see any problem using 2 completely separate systems in the same pool
    Pool: Intex 16x32 15000 gal, 2 speed 340042, Pentair CC320 Filter, CircuPool SJ45 Salt System, Intermatic PE653RC; Hot Tub: 650 Gal SWG Megachlor
