So I opened my pool and after a week of running the pump while SLAMing the pool the pump seized up. I got good service from the Intex pump and sand filter. I first thought of just replacing the pump but upon inspection I found that the housing that secures the pressure gauge on the sand filter is cracked. With that said I decided to completely replace the pump and filter.
I have been reading a lot online about different pumps and filters and have been leaning heavily towards a hayward pump and filter, but, while shopping on Amazon I came across a Best Choice Products SKY1639 Pro Above Ground Swimming Pool Pump System, 19", 4500 GPH. Seems like a decent price for a 1hp pump and it would certainly meet my needs. The reviews seem positive but I have never heard of this company. Has anyone ever used this system and if so what are your thoughts on it. Does anyone else have a recommendation for a pump and filter that would suit my needs for less than $350. Thanks
