Hello all, I am working on setting up my first pool, an Intex 12x30 metal frame (1700 gallons).
I was planning on getting the 1200gph Intex sand filter, is that adequate or should I be looking at larger one? I've read about larger pumps blowing the hoses off these smaller pools. I'm not sure at what size I'll run into mismatched tubing sizes either, I was hoping to avoid that. I believe the 12x30 pool and the 1200gph sand filter both use 1.25" hoses. I also like the fact that it only uses 1.8 amps (less $$).
I should also mention I plan on upgrading to a 14x42 (3300 gallons) in 3-4 years.
I will be using an Intex SWG if that makes any difference. It says it needs at least 700gph so the 1200 (1050 throughput I believe) should be plenty?
Thanks for any advice.
