    Intex 26' - is plumbing 1 1/2" OR 1 1/4" ?

    My pool is still in the box in the garage ... but I'm looking to go ahead & order a sand filter. I've read some things that suggest the plumbing on this particular model is already 1 1/2". Can anyone confirm this?

    Many thanks!!

    Since it has the 2500 gph pump, yes, it will have the 1-1/2" hoses and fittings.

    The sand filter should hook right up to it.

    If you decide not to get the sand filter (and I don't see why you shouldn't), and use the 633 you have, you should get a couple of Unicel C-5315 or Filbur FC-3752 filters. They work much better than the Intex.
