    Oh. Okay. So I guess $20 for the Dow Blue XPS is comparable. I believe they said its 5/8ths thick. Is that what the pink stuff is also?

    Hayward Power Flo LX Pump and 16" Sand Filter vs Intex 2650

    Re: Hayward Power Flo LX Pump and 16" Sand Filter vs Intex 2 I was wondering where the sand was coming from. Thought the kids were tracking it in. I'll run it this way till next year. Maybe purchase a new pump and keep this one as a backup. Thanks for the info. Much appreciated.

    Hayward Power Flo LX Pump and 16" Sand Filter vs Intex 2650

    Re: Hayward Power Flo LX Pump and 16" Sand Filter vs Intex 2 The SF of my pump is 1.0. It seems to work great. I was running it 5hrs a day but have now throttled back to 3-4. Why do you think it's too much pump for the filter? What determines this?
