    Please weigh in on these 2 sand filter/ pumps...

    Got the pool and swg figured out, now for the pump/filter

    I am looking at buying one of the two for an 18' x 52" easy set (ring)pool...

    thoughts?? for the size difference, do you think there will be much difference in overall results???!

    If you can afford it, I would go with the larger one. Many people have posted liking the larger one, while the smaller one is both less common and not so uniformly liked.

    Go with the 2650 but if you can wait, I bet that price will come down. I paid $140 last year.

    I have the 2650 I bought back in 2012. Back then it cost $200 and it has the blue color plastics like the smaller one. But it works well for a 24' round pool and I like the built in timer. I can match it with the timer on my SWG. So far very happy with it.
