My one year old Intex 2650 is giving me problems with the motor humming and not engaging the pump sometimes so before it dies I was contemplating the cartridge filter for more micron removal and was wondering what other people thought. I know its an ongoing debate and I have read the pros and cons I am thinking it will help with some water clarity because my water is a little hazy most of the time where the pool sits in the country with trees, pollen ,daily thunderstorms, and dust even though all my numbers are kept in range. We often suffer daily thunderstorms and just had a hurricane so I am always having to dump my diluted treated water due to overfill. One question I have about the cartridge filter for an AGP is about waste, can u vacuum to waste and does it have a waste setting to dump an overfilled pool easily like the sand.
The other question would be size for my 21 x 52?
