I have an Intex 16 x 48 ABG (5000 gallons), was running an Intex cartridge filter/pump 2500 gph that burned out. I have already purchased an Intex 2650 sand filter SWG combo unit that will arrive in 4 days. I came accross the following site

and now am undecided wheter to use sand or glass in the filter. Any comments and or advice will be greatly appreciated. I was also told that the Intex 2650 is mismatched having to large of a pump .95 (1) hp for a 100 lb filter, the gentleman said a .5 (1/2) hp would give me better results, I would like to hear some toughts on this, not that I can do anything due to already buying the unit.
