My first post. Been reading a lot here over the last few weeks and have already got my pool in great shape with the information, many thanks to all of you. This is our first purchased pool that has any filtration pump and the use of treated water. I got the water within a week to a state of crystal clarity with all of your information. Even though Iím sure to expect some here that may think this pump is overkill for such a small pool, I really only have a few simple questions to ask.
First, I have the stock Intex Model 603 pump that came with the Intex easy set 10 X 30 pool. I have the water in good shape testing with the Taylor K-2006 kit. Iím not satisfied with the stock pump. I really like what Iíve read about this 1600 GPH Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump. Iím having some issues with small debris collecting on the floor surface and general, normal filtering issues. I donít like the paper filters at all. I thought about going with larger paper units, but when I saw this sand filter it really jumped out at me. Again, this is a pump/filter question for a smaller pool. Water clarity is not an issue at the moment, what do you folks think?
1. Will this pump fit the existing Intex 10 x 30 (round, no metal frame) easy set pool outlet and inlet without cutting the pool, by using adapters?
2. Even if this seems like way to much for such a small pool, will it work without damaging either the pool or the pump?
Anything that I may not anticipate that you folks have information on with experience is why I joined the sight today. I am very impressed by, and glad to be here with this community.
Thanks for all your dedication to helping others find the path to paradise. Large or small. My daughter thanks you as well.
