Just for those wondering, I hooked up an Intex 633T pump to a 24" Hayward S244T sand filter. Will it run it? Yep. Seems to have better flow thru the hayward than the stock type B cartridge filter. I removed the cartridge filter from the housing, and the pump just pumps through the empty housing then to the Hayward. This is a temporary setup until I can get a real pump, but it DOES seem to be working ok. The flow on backwash is strong as well. I will post a pic of the setup later. I still have to get my SWG back in-line.
