    2100 or 2800 intex sand filter pump

    I need to order a new pump. i have the pump that came with my 14x 42 summer escapes pool. On amazon they have 2100 gph for $96.25 and the 2800 pgh for $132.88. should i just go with the smaller pump of 2100 gph or should i just go ahead a buy the bigger one?

    Let's try a and see if anyone has any insight. Bigger is better on a filter, not sure if that pump would be overkill on your pool. And bigger pump means bigger electric bill.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    I have the 2800. I would go with it as it will be plenty to filter your pool and you can still use it if you upgrade to a bigger pool.
