If you had a couple hundred dollars and needed a pump which one would you buy, a 4000 GPH Intex pump or a Hayward pump? I saw where someone on here rigged their Intex filter up to a Whisper supreme I believe it was, and they didn't use the Intex pump just the filter of it, and this was only temp because they were going to get a sand filter later. We're trying to figure out which pump to get and I thought since I have a 2500 gph Intex pump that is torn up, I/we might could rig ours like that with a Hayward if I could get a good one for this price..... until we could get the sand filter. Just wondering what you all think about this and which way you would go? The Hayward or the Intex? Also do you guys have any idea on how long the Hayward pumps usually last? From what I understand the Intex pumps last 2-3 seasons. ???
