I filled my new Intex pool and then found out the pool sand for the upgraded 2650gph pump won't be delivered till later this week. Since I cut the intake and return holes larger and installed the larger fittings I can't go back to using the small pump that came with the pool.
Can I hook up the pump without the sand filter, just to get the CYA in a sock going and to help mix up the chlorine I'm adding every morning?
Will it hurt anything?
So I would hook the return hose direct to the pump outlet instead of the 6way valve on top of the sand filter.
