Help.....I can not find a definitive answer, or I'm not smart enough to......I have an Intex 14" sand filter, the motor is a .5 HP 1600 gph, and it went out on me. I decided to make a slight upgrade as my pool volume is a bit over 13,000 gal. I placed an order to a newer version Intex .95 hp 3000 gph. My problem is that the larger filter will take more media, which I have ordered, but won't be delivered until a few days later. I was right in the middle of opening my pool and I'm afraid all the work and money I have put in already will be lost. Can I hook the more powerful motor up to the smaller filter for a few days with out causing any damage to the pump? Thank you!
