I tried to call "PolyGroup", the people who manufacture the pool, but to no avail, after 150 times in one day of calling ... the line was busy.
I bought the Intex 2500 GPH pump system. It's very easy to hook up to your Summer Escapes Pool. Basically the hoses will fit on the Summer Escapes Pool fittings, -BUT- you must use the hose that originally came with the pool for parts.
I took the original hose, using a utility knife, cut the ends off of the hose (the flat ends that aren't rigid) and placed them over the fittings on the Summer Escapes Pool - that allows for the hoses from the Intex pump to fit perfectly, you will have to buy two clamps to tighten the hoses.
The Intex 2500 GPH pump is awesome and works well with our Summer Escapes Pool.
Hope this helps all of the people that are upset about the pump that PolyGroup (Summer Escapes Pools), manufacture.
