    Question Need help with Sand FIlter Pump, Opening Pool for summer?

    Hi there,

    I have a 15 x 48 Intex above ground pool, last summer I bought a new pump so I chose to get the Intex Sand Filter Pump Model #70110.
    Last year was the 1st time I ever used it. SO now that I have my pool filled and everything connected to the pump im not sure what to
    do since last year I started with the instructions such as adding the sand etc.

    Can you tell me what I need to do to get the pump running this year, How do I get the water into the pump with sand? I realize this may be a dumb
    question, I just want to make sure im doing it the right way as not to cause a problem with the pump. How do I release the air in the pump and when
    do I do that? I read something about it online. Thanks

    Have you turned on the pump to see what happens? I'm pretty sure it will start right up.
