We moved into this house and they had a 22' x 52" intex pool with a 2500 gal/hr intex cartridge pump & filter.
I didn't think it was doing the trick and I didn't really know much about flow rate and that kind of thing, just that I had had pools before and it thought these intex was inadequate.
I bought a used sand filter and a 1 hp pump that has had some issues with leaks and debris coming through the return.
While working on my sand filter, I had to hook up the intex filter... And I have to say, I like it a whole lot better. It doesn't leak, the connects are modular and don't require modification.
There are many intex users here, what do you think about these cartridge filters? Are they really adequate for 5 bathers a day? Pool season starts this weekend!
