I am looking to replace the 1500 GPH cartridge filter pump that came with the 18'x52" AGP. I like the idea of the sand filter - not having to change out cartridges, clean them, replace them/ etc.
I am curious if anybody has experience with the 1600 GPH Intex Sand filter vs the 2650 GPH Intex Sand filter.
What I am mostly wanting to know is if the 1600 GPH has enough power to use the vacuum effectively. It seems with the cartridge filter that came with pool - 1500 gph, it doesn't have a lot of sucking power for the vacuum attachment. I would assume that the 2650 would have a lot more power.
Or are there similarly priced models from other manufacturers that anybody would recommend?
