    Intex pump question

    I currently have a 1000 GPH pump that came with my 18ft x48in AGP.
    I have heard the pumps are under sized for the actual pools they sell them with, so I am looking to go up & unfortunately can not afford to go out of the Intex pump price range right now.

    Would the 1500 GPH Intex pump actually be any improvement or should I go ahead & go with the 2500 GPH? or would the 2500GPH be overkill?

    Unless you're having problems, I'd stick with the undersized one and save up for a real pump/filter. They don't cause problems by themselves, and will suffice as long as you don't have any big issues to clean up.

    I have the 16' Ultra Frame and upgraded to the 2500 (it is in my price range at $99 inc ship on AMazon). I love it! It has done a wonderful job this year. It is a lot stronger than the 1500. Am planning on sticking with it next year, too. I also upgraded to the Intex Deluxe Vacuum/Maintenance Kit and love that as well. All of this is in my price range. It has been a pretty carefree summer with this Intex equipment.
