Looking to buy a sand filter and pump for my Intex. Fittings on my pool are already 1 1/2" so don't necessarily want to limit my choices to just Intex options. I have NO idea what I need from either a pump or filter standpoint. I do know I don't want to have to backwash every week .. ideally only once a month but at some point cost of filter & pump is an issue.
In reading up on selecting sand filters, it seems if I want an 8 hr turnover, 34 GPM is sufficient. For 6 hrs 45 GPM, 4 hours 67 GPM ... is this correct?
Also have to keep in mind I don't have power out by the pool. Plan to bury an extension cord from the GFI outlet on the side of my house to the pool area (for now).
