Well to start off I hope I found the right place. There appears to be a lot of useful information to be obtained here. At any rate I have a bit of a situation. This year we decided to start our pool up again and have run into a plethora of issues. Our original sand filter is a sand dollar but the top is shot and it is leaking. The pump itself which is only 2 years old is now leaking at the base of the leaf catcher ( op side of motor ). So we started looking at sand filters and pump combos. I came across this Intex 1200 gph pump/filter combo and was wondering if this would work on our pool. We have an 18 X 52 or 54 inch pool with your standard skimmer and return. We are extremely tight with money right now so obviously we are looking for the cheapest way out at this point.
Thank you in advance for any intel you can throw this guys way.
