    Welcome to the forum. What size is your pool? What size is your pump?

    The whole system should "match up" to give you the best economy and filtering power.

    I would recommend getting the 2650. There are an awfully lot of good reviews on them. I see it's back in stock on Amazon here

    Didn't know you were in Canada. That's why it's a good idea to put your location down. I still suggest waiting unless it's going to be a long time.

    Also , wondering if there is a product out there that i can put under my pool as well as the tarp it came with , 1" styrofoam is just too expensive for me , was looking for a more durable product that a tarp?

    The tarp is pretty durable, but if you want something else you could try some laminate flooring underlayment.

    Bummer, Hopefully they'll get one before long. Or have you already gone a different route?

    They also sell it by a different brand name. I can't remember what it is, but it's the same unit.

    Any of the small name brand pump filter combos will work. Hayward, Pentair, Sta-Rite, etc.

    Do you have a Sams or Costco nearby?
