    Welcome to tfp, samtech

    The intex 2650 sand filter has gotten good reviews on here. I would get that over the 1600 that was pointed out above, since your pool is a little bigger and the 2650 does a better job if you use a suction side vacuum.

    I would avoid any that have the swg "built in" since they never fail at the same time.

The SLAM process is not finished until: 1. CC < 0.5 ppm, 2. An OCLT < 1.0 ppm and, 3. The water is crystal clear.

    +1 for the Intex 2650. I own one and really like it.

    PS you are on the right site. Best pool site on the web!
