Thread: 4000gph intex pump?

  1. Back To Top    #1

    4000gph intex pump?

    Would the 4000gph intex pump, along with the intex swg be adequate? I have the intex 24'x52" round, and this is our first pool. I don't want to break the bank out of the gate, but don't want green water either. That would also give me more time to figure out a system for the long term.

    Thanks for sharing.

    4000 gph is 66 gpm. That will be fine for the pool you have.

    We switched over to that combo last year on a 30' pool and it works great. The only "problem" is the fact the filters are so small so they don't last long, but with a good cleaning they get a few uses before tossing.

    New to the site, but it has really been helpful and also enjoyed reading different topics.
    We have a 24 x 52 Intex Ultra Frame pool. I am wanting to upgrade my filtering system. I am wondering if the Intex 56681EG (2650 GPH) Saltwater system and sand filter pump set would be large enough to notice a difference. I am running the one that came with the pool, Krystal clear filter pump and a SWG now. It just doesn't seem to move enough water or clean to suit me. We just purchased the pool last summer for our grandsons. It has been years since I have kept one up. I am sure, for my part, the more I learn about upkeep again will be a plus.
    Any thoughts anyone can offer would be great, thanks!
