    Looking for suggestions!

    I am trying to find a better pump/filter for my little intex pool. I have the small cartridge filter pump thingy that came with the pool and it seems to be a bit to small (or slow, not sure the best term). If anyone has any suggestions about which way I should go, I would be glad to hear them! I am new to all of this, and wouldn't know one type from another. I have read about them in pool school, and it all still seems greek to me!

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    The Intex 2600 sand filter is a big step up from the Intex cartridge filters and reasonably priced.

    The only one I can find is the 2650 Gallon Sand Filter Pump W/GFCI. Is that what I want for a pool my size? If so, I'll buy it today so I can get my pool cleared up faster!!!

    That is the one JL was referring to, and good choice for your pool.
