    Pump question

    So I got a standard inflatable Intex pool last year. It came with a single pump / filter unit. When I discovered the pump was not strong enough to pump water through a solar heater I ordered a larger sand filter and pump.

    The sand filter is toast after the winter .... can I use the larger pump that came with the sand filter in line with the Intex pump/filter unit? Or should I just get a new cartridge filter?

    You should get a new sand filter. The sand filter pump is too large for the tiny Intex cartridge filter.
