    g.a.m.e. Sand Pro 3/4 HP Sand Filter System - any good

    Hi all
    I'm looking at getting item#35414101 Sand Pro 3/4 HP Sand Filter System
    (Mfg # 4511 ) from pinch a penny.
    Do you think its worth it. I have a 5500gallon 15' intex (1"diameter pool hose)
    can i also add a cartridge filter to that later?
    I also have a pool hose i got from Walmart and a vac head whats the best way to hook that up?

    I have this for my pool. Of course it has only been 4 days of use, but so far no problems with it. We did have some issues of sittin the hoses perfectly so they didn't leak; thy don't give you much space to work with. But it's easy enough for me to use. My pool is a bit smaller than yours, but it's working well with keeping my pool clean.

    thanks for your responce,

    Did yours come with sand? or some other media? whats the best?
    Were the inlets and outlets the same size as the old rinky dinky one that came with it?

    I haven't had any issues with these units yet. They seem to be well built. GAME said they used to use them on small ponds.

    No they don't come with any sand, you'll have to buy that separately. 78lbs is what it holds.

    You need to buy the pool sand. Ours were 50 lb bags, so it took approximately 1.5 bags. Still no problems with ours. We run it enough to turn the pool over about twice a day, adds to a couple of hours during the day and a couple at night when I add the bleach. I don't have an intex pool, but there were some additional parts that are supposed to fit your pump and filter to the intex connectors. So I would guess it would not be a problem.

    thanks. does anyone know how i would hook up the vac i pieced together from Walmart.
    I suppose that's done from inside the pool.
    i going to look for some pvc that matches the pool screen intake and output (the part that goes thru the wall) that came with the pool.

    Those? Your local Pinch A Penny should have them in stock, if not they can get them for you.

    You could run a pipe over the wall of the pool and down to the bottom, kinda like a reverse snorkel, but I'm afraid it'd be in the way all the time.

    i figured i'd just use the vac inlet to connect a pipe down the wall and over. that way i could disconnect it when needed.
