Intex Krystal Clear Sand Pump Filter Opinions!

Hi everyone! This may seem pointless as I have not bought my pool yet but I know it will be a large size Intex Ultra Frame. I know the pump that it comes with is junk, so I was looking on Amazon and found excellent reviews for the 16” Intex Krystal Clear Sand Pump. It’s the largest one they have. Minimum pool size 5,500 gallons, maximum 17,200 gallons.

My question is, I don’t see as much about this filter/pump as I do about Hayward products. Has anyone used this filter with their AGP? If so, are you happy with it? Should I go with a different one? Sorry, I’m new to this and learning a lot from this forum. Thanks in advance! :)

Hope this is posted in the right section of the forum. If not, please feel free to move. Thanks!

There have been many reports on here about people having good success with the Intex Sand Filter systems. While larger systems may be better I wouldn't have an issue with the Intex. At least as a beginning setup.
