Hello, I am new to this forum and I have been researching on how to hook up a sand filter to an Intex above ground pool. The pool my family owns is small, about 15'-16'. We recently bought a Hayward sand filter, 16" filter tank with a 1.5 hp pump. Originally, amazon said it was a 1 hp pump but on the pump it's labelled 1.5. I'm afraid it might be too powerful? When I hooked it up to the pool, first I tried with the hoses that were supplied with the pool originally, water was shooting out like a geyser out of the return. Is there any way I can reduce the water pressure? would hard plumbing it with valves to control water flow into the pump work? Any advice would be helpful!
