I'm using an intex 8111 (swg plus 2000gph pump) with my solar bears - works great, but I have the panels mounted near ground level which makes it easier on the pump than what would be needed for a roof-mount setup.

jml hit on the big question, are your panels going to be on the ground or on the roof?

Are you planning on getting a bigger more permanent pool in the near future?

What have you looked at so far?

I recommend going with the largest filter you can afford and a 2-speed pump. Either a 3/4hp full rated or 1hp uprated. I like the Pentair clean & clear combo's but they're only single speed pumps.

ok I have done some looking around and I think I found something that will work

S180T92
Pro Series 18in. Sand Filter Sys w/Filter Control Valve & 1HP Power-Flo Matrix Pump & Base FREE but the pump is only 1 speed

the pool this will be going on is 16' x 48"
