    use Intex SWG with a different pump?

    We are upgrading our pump for our Intex pool and I'm curious if I can still continue to use the Intex SWG and disconnect the Intex pump to use a bigger pump. Has anyone done this with success?

    Upgrading our Intex 12x24 Ultra pump, filter, heater

    My neighbor is saying we can use our current Intex SWG with the new pump I linked above. Do you know if that's correct?

    Upgrading our Intex 12x24 Ultra pump, filter, heater

    Thank you. Yikes. This is getting expensive quickly! Not sure I can convince my husband to spend over $1500 on a new pump, filter, and SWG for a pool that cost less than that in the first place!

    Upgrading our Intex 12x24 Ultra pump, filter, heater

    Ahhh, yes, I forgot about the fact that the Intex system is a pump, filter, and SWG all in one. So if I buy this pump and sand filter, I'll also need to purchase a new SWG! Ugh!!!! Now I'm really not sure what to do!!!!

    Upgrading our Intex 12x24 Ultra pump, filter, heater

    We are entering our third season with our Intex Ultra 12x24x52 8400 gal saltwater pool. This summer we plan to add a deck, upgrade the pump/filter, and hopefully add a heater. We already added the Hayward through wall skimmer and upgraded the piping to 1.5" last season. We are in coastal...

    Recommendations for replacing OEM Intex Sand Filter pump combo

    Do you have any specific pump/sand filter recommendations? Also, we installed the Hayward skimmer and updated to 1.5" pipe last season, but we didn't add any jets. Do you have any advice on this? Thanks!

    Recommendations for replacing OEM Intex Sand Filter pump combo

    We already did the Hayward skimmer and 1.5" piping last season. Which pump/filter did you order?

    Recommendations for replacing OEM Intex Sand Filter pump combo

    Do you have the 12x24? I see you have a 18x9 cover, so I'm assuming you have the smaller version of this pool?

    Recommendations for replacing OEM Intex Sand Filter pump combo

    Did you make any decisions or find any more info on this? I'm so tired of fighting to keep up with our pool. I've heard to buy a 1.5" HP pump and a 19" sand filter and to upgrade pipe to 1.5 in and add another jet. No idea if this is good info or not!

    Recommendations for replacing OEM Intex Sand Filter pump combo

    I have this same pool and came looking for the same answer. The Intex pump and filter just aren't enough for coastal Alabama and under a bunch of trees (also lots of pine pollen!). We want to add some additional jets and upgrade the pump/same filter. Hopefully you get some good advice. We...

    Hurricane Sally and our swamp--suggestions for winter? Please HELP!

    We live in coastal AL and were hammered by Sally. Not only did our pool become completely FULL of leaves, branches, and an enormous amount of debris, but we also lost power so there was no way to filter (which wouldn't have worked anyway since there was too much debris). We now have a horrible...
