    That will work, it won't work well but it will work.

    What if I get the intex 2500, and do the same thing, will it mess it up not having a cartridge in there? What are the cons? Thanks

    Do you have a sand filter? If so, why would you want to put a intex pump on it? Why not just get a real pump? If cost is the issue, look at getting a used pump off of craigs list. The intex pumps are very weak and really do not last.
