    pentair sand dollar filter and 1hp pump

    Purchased this and reading instructions see lots of people bought pumps and filters other then intex did they say the following
    Not for use with storable pools, a storable pool is constructed to be disassembled for storage and has a max dimension of 18ft and wall height of 48 or lower. Ours is 22x52 says can be used with those smaller sizes if protected by factory installed double insulated enclosure. I dont get it.. whats the diference its a 1hp sand filter and pump. Also see alot of u cover with storage containers we get up to 115 here in phx should we cover the pumps and Filter we r getting a huge 9 tilting umbrella to shade some of pool figured would shade area where pump is

    The reason for the warning is that most storable pools aren't bonded or set up for permanent electrical service.

    You should have a dedicated receptacle ran to the pump location from your power panel. If the pump has a cord it's only going to eb 3' long and you shouldn't use an extension cord.

    A dedicated receptacle is a receptacle that only the pump gets plugged into. It should be a single receptacle.

    Unless you or handy with electrical (or have a friend that is) you need an electrician to install one. It needs to be on a GFCI breaker or it needs to be a GFCI receptacle.
