    Everyone who has bought that pump loves it, the only one better is the saltwater generator pump because it makes your chlorine on the spot

    Hey Piolin, what sand did you use and how much did you put in?

    I have had mine for 3 years now, I have the separate SWG. Those two changes have truly made my pool an absolute pleasure, my maintenance is extremely minimal I love it!!!

    Re: Intex filter pumps??

    I bought one this season to replace cartridge type filter. I love it. Low maintenance and easy to run. I did cut off the GFCI plug and replace with a standard plug to run it with a mechanical timer (the timer is protected by a GFCI outlet). This increases the ease of use. I am able to run the filter twice daily (for about 5 hrs each time). With the GFCI plug it would trip every time the mechanical timer clicked on. I also paired this pump with a SWG and it's perfect.
