    Help! Up rating from 1000gph to 3000gph sand filter

    I decided to break down and buy a new Intex 3000 gph sand filter. I have a summer waves 18'48" easy set pool. As far as enlarging the holes for the new fittings, I have a quick question. Would it be easier with the pool full, half full, or empty? Any additional info would be helpful!! Any photos an absolute PLUS! Thanks in advance

    Welcome....Take a look at the first stickey under the ABOVE GROUND POOL forum. "HELPFUL LINKS FOR INTEX OWNERS". Very soon others will reply as well, yours is a very popular and very common upgrade question. You'll be getting lots of advice and lots of photos...
    Hope this helps to get you started.....
