    The intex 2100 is a .95 hp pump with a 100 lb sand filter which has a flow rate of 2100 gallons per hour or 35 gallons per minute.

    The Hayward 1 hp power flow LX series is a pump. What is the size or model number of the filter?

    Looks like they are comparable in size and flow rate.
    Hayward s166t is a 1.4 sq ft filter. It will also hold 100 lbs of sand. The flow rate is 35 gallons per minute.

    Both filters should yield comparable filtration.

    I perceive the Hayward pump and filter to be of better construction than the Intex, but have no data to support that perception other than the higher price.
