In June we bought and installed our first above-ground pool. We started with an Intex 15ft X 48inch round. It took me a few weeks to get the hang of the chemical thing and keep it from getting algae, but thanks to this forum, we have a beautiful clear pool that the kids LOVE to play in. BUT, our filter keeps cutting off and not wanting to start back up. Today it wouldn't come on at all. We put in the call to Intex and they are sending a new one. I have no idea how long that will take! I think we should upgrade though. I have read that the filters that come with the Intex pools aren't really big enough to handle the amount of water in the pools. If that is true, what filter should I upgrade to that will be compatible with my pool? I would hate to trade one problem for another. Like will a new filter fit with the hoses for my pool?
