    At $165 it's a steal. I'd jump on it.

    really that's what i was thinking so you think that would be far better then the 2650 intex? just want to get the best and what's going to keep it the cleanest. Rambler you have a lot of knowledge of pools would that pump amazon has packaged with the filter be a good one or would you recommend one form me. price rang 375.00 and lower.

    The Amazon deal is a good one and a good unit.

    If you buy the filter for $165 and a new 1/2 or 3/4 hp pump you'd have a great setup.

    really 1/2 or 3/4 i thought the more hp is better, i thought 1 hp was a min for a 24ft pool. so all i would need is 1/2-3/4 or should should i go for a 1 hp to 1 1/2 hp.
    thanks by the way bama ur being a great help

    I've got an S-244 (one size up from the S-220) with a 1 HP Hayward Super Pump on my 36K gal pool. It runs 24 hours a day and turns over the pool water about 3 times. With your pool, a 1 HP pump would probably get 3 cycles in much less than 24 hours. A 1/2 or 3/4 HP pump should easily give you the circulation you need.

    Good luck!

    1 hp Hayward Super Pump (new in 2012);
    Hayward S244T sand filter w/ Zeosand (both new in 2009);

    The pool places have propagated the belief that bigger is better in pumps but it's not. A 1/2 hp pump is big enough for a pretty big pool unless you have a water feature that requires a huge amount of flow. In filters, bigger is better to a point, but not in pumps.
