I have a small intex pool pump that turns over the pool water every 4-5hrs.
My pool is surrounded with sand and the kids keep tracking sand in and the pump doesn't have enough power to run a vacuum. I tried a water hose powered vacuum but the sand is so fine that it flows right through the stocking.
With the help of Frustratedpoolmom and PaulR I have my cya in check along with all the other levels. But my pool isn't that "sparkling blue" anymore.
We are going to be getting a "real" pool next spring.
My question is, would it be ok to purchase our new pool's filtering system now, and use it on the intex pool so I can use the vacuum and suck all the junk up and get my sparkling blue pool back?
I currently have an intex cartridge system but am seriously thinking about going with the sand filter setup on the new pool, so when I suck up sand etc, it doesn't tear up the pump like the last two intex pumps I have went through in the last 2months.
