    Intex 2650 GPH Sand Filter $166.94 at Amazon

    Been holding out on getting one of these, but at this price, I couldn't pass it up. I haven't even setup my pool yet as I'm waiting to have some trees taken down, but this is quite the deal from what I've seen.

    Thanks for the link. A friend has been looking at that pump and couldn't afford it at the present time. This is much more affordable for her and I sent the link to her.

    It's actually available now for $151.92 if you order from Amazon's other seller 7th Avenue Store! I'm trying to get them to price match it for me now.

    Well Amazon also has it for cheaper. Seems like they're having a little price war

    It's a really good pump though if you're considering getting one.

    The return shipping itself would eat up the difference that I'd save..... pointless.

    Thanks a million for the heads up on this. I have an Intex 15'x42" and the 2650 may be a little overkill, but it was on my wish list at Amazon and I jumped on it. The big box arrived yesterday but I was busy today and didn't have a chance to set it up yet. Maybe tomorrow or Monday.

    We bought ours for $194 2 months ago from Ebay, free shipping so maybe that evens out? I love this pump for the value.

    Re: Intex 2650 GPH Sand Filter $166.94 at Amazon

    I bought mine at the end of last season. We were away the last two weeks of August and I planned to take down the pool after Labor Day, so I left the sand filter in the shipping box and didn't set it up until this season. It's been up for over a month now and I'm very happy with it. The improvement in water clarity over the pump that came with the pool is amazing, and no more expensive paper filters to hassle with. I originally used the smaller integrated fittings that came on my Intex 15' but then followed the advice of others here and cut the pool liner to use the larger fittings. It is a little scary at first, but no big deal if you take your time and use a sharp blade. The result was another huge improvement in water flow and water clarity.

    In late May the price on Amazon was actually below $160 and stayed there for a few weeks, but now has shot back up to $200 or more. They seem to discount it regularly so set a price watch and be ready to jump on it when it drops. Amazon also offers free shipping which helps with something this large.

    Re: Intex 2650 GPH Sand Filter $166.94 at Amazon

    i have the summer escapes f2000c filter, which is basically a skimmer setup that takes water from the top waterline of the pool... my pool doesn't have the intake that is attached to the pool halfway down in depth.. i've seen people just take out the impeller of the current pump and attach the sand filter to that.. has anyone here done this? i've also heard of people doing some cutting which scares me this isn't my pool so if i mess up i'm in trouble.. don't have the sand filter yet but i just want to prepare for what I will have to do.. I do have the ozone swg because it was on sale, but that just hooks up to the current hose no problems..
