    Which Intex Sand Filter for 22x52

    Looking for advice before I buy an intex sand filter. I don't know why the 28647EG (2800gph) is cheaper then the 28651EG (3000gph). This is for an intex 22x52 pool approx 10,000.

    You mean the 3000 is cheaper.

    For filters, bigger is better and the pumps are virtually the same.
    In fact the pump may be identical and the only reason they get a higher flow rate is due to the larger filter's lower head loss. {EDIT: this may not be true since they actually list the pump flow rate and the system flow rate separately.}

    Get the bigger, cheaper one.
