    Is Intex 2500 pump filter powerful enough for Aquabug?

    Hi everyone, I am planning on buying an Aquabug because I am getting tired of manual vacuuming using the Intex Deluxe Pool maintenance package. But before I do that, I would like some insights or opinions if my 2500 gallon/hr Intex pump filter will be powerful enough to run the Aquabug.

    Thanks for your insights and opinions.

    So someone else can answer as I have no idea if it's powerful enough.

    Is the 2500 the pump they sell with the sand filter? or is it the cartridge filter pump?

    The Sand Filter "might" run it, No way the cartridge filter would. I have a diver dave but my pump is way upgraded from the Intex I used to have.

    The 633 is a cartridge pump, and no, it isn't enough to run a robot.

    Thanks for the feedback so far...I guess I have to start saving for a more powerful pump first.

    Thanks jsf0656. I saw that too last night and I asked my neighbors if anyone of them has the Aquabug. One of them has the Wanda Whale and she let me try it this morning. So I did and it worked!!! I am now looking for an Aquabug in eBay.

    Well color me purple! Thanks for the update. I honestly didn't think the 633 would be enough pump for those.
