    upgrading filter pump

    I have a 14x42 summer escape pool that probably holds 3750 gallons. I want to upgrade the filter pump to something stronger, last summer we used the pump that came with the pool and I dont think it did a good job. I was thinking of a sand filter, I would like suggestions on which ones are good and hoping to find some videos of the conversion.

    Intex has a new 3000gph sand filter. I've seen it for around $180.
    1) 7500 Gallon Free Form Gunite Pool / 800 Gallon Gunite Spa
    2) EasyTouch 8 Automation / IC20 Intellichlor
    3) Intelliflo VS Pump for pool and water features - Cartridge and DE Filter / 2 Speed Pentair Pump for Spa and Cartridge Filter

    The one in my signature is great. My pool is a bit bigger than your so it should work fine. I got it on Amazon for $140 or around there.

    my next one will probably be 15x48 cant go much bigger than 15 because of the space. Is yours Saltwater? and if so does it have to be?

    Yes, I have a SWG, but it does not have to be. We will probably get a new one next year. It will likely have to still be a 15 round again unless I map out a place in the yard that I have a good view. My daughter is a good swimmer, but I still worry if my grandson is over. Right now we have it right off our back patio.

    Re: upgrading filter pump

    I converted to it. It comes with adapters. Last year I just used the adapters. Then I decided to upgrade the inlet and outlet plugs this year when we upgraded to the sand filter. I will be back with a link for you.

    This is the link that helped me.

    that was very helpful. I have decided to go with the Intex 2800 Gal Sand Filter Pump if i get a bigger pool this should still be efficient
