    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.7 out of 5★ by 277reviewers.
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Thought about getting one of these when I saw them in the store. They sold out really fast. Didn't expect to find one on, let alone for $50 less. Took about a week to get to store for pickup. The owner's manual is pretty much worthless. Put it together according to book, hooked it up, and it shot sand INTO the pool. Spent the whole weekend trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Had to take the whole thing apart, including the handle and top assembly. Flushed all the sand out of the parts, emptied the sand from the canister, and checked the pre-assembled laterals inside. Turned out 4 of the screws holding the laterals to the center tube were missing! The gaps because of the missing screws let sand into every place it wasn't supposed to be... Put it all back together, vacuumed sand out of the pool (to waste so sand wouldn't clog pump), crossed my fingers and turned on the pump. Works great! Water is crystal clear and so much easier to vacuum! Too bad I had to figure it out through trial and error. Never had a sand filter before. No mention in the manual of checking on the laterals, the pressure gauge, how to hook up a backwash hose-or where to get a backwash hose. Glad I have it now, but wish instructions had been more informative. 06/22/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by It does the job This filter works quite well but is a little underpowered for a 24 ft pool, it is only 1/2 hp. One thing that is very important that is not mentioned in the included manual. Before you start putting the sand into the filter, make sure that all the little filters on the bottom of the pickup tube are screwed into their sockets completely. I did not check that and had fatal results, this made the filter pump all the sand into the pool. Talk about a mess. It ruined everything that the water flowed through. After taking the filter apart to return to Walmart, that is when I noticed some of the filters had come off of the pickup tube. They must have come off during shipping, and I did not remove the ring that is there to help pour in the sand. It was a mess. But Walmart exchanged it, and this time I made sure everything was tight. This one works like a charm. Definitely worth the money, the cost of the paper filters will drive you in the poor house. 07/07/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fantastic replacement option for factory pump. We have had this filter/pump for right at a month now, and love it. It is hooked up to a 5 year old Intex 15'x48" frame pool, with a deluxe surface skimmer hanging over the side. Our water has never been so clean and clear. I was skeptical at first, due to the low cost, but now I'm a believer. Cleaning the filter is so easy, my son can do it. Just backwash for a couple of minutes, rinse for a minute, switch back to filter, and you are done. Nothing to disassemble, no expensive paper filters to keep buying and cleaning, nothing. The pump is plenty strong to use with a vaccume. The only down side, on our pool, the hoses and valves were hanging down pretty good. I just cut and notched a couple of treated 2x4's to support the fittings, and have had no trouble. The instructions say the sand will only need replacement every five years, so, we'll see. 07/03/2011
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by The filter makes quite the difference In comparison to the 'paper filter' that came with this pool (non-Intex), I have already noticed a significant difference with both the vacuuming and the general cleanliness by using this filter/pump. Although I am pleased with the pump, I was dissapointed that it did not come with a hose that fits the 'waste' outlet. It requires a fitted hose with a nut and it has been difficult to find. Similarly, it was very difficult to convert the skimmer that came with the pool to fit the hose for the same reason, but it was eventually possible. 07/05/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by After looking at the pool store and online for a sand filter we found this pump and filter. Less than half the cost of the pool store, works great, maintenance is simplified. The pump/filter that came with our pool was incapable of filtering the entire pool unless left running constantly. This filter cleans the entire pool in 4 hours. We have a 15x42 intex pool. No more cartridges. Much easier to keep the chemicals balanced, however still a daily chore. Adding this pump/filter has also allowed us to use a traditional pool vacuum helps keep the debris off the pool floor. Next, we will add the salt water system. Love this item and would recommend over and over again. 06/20/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Well worth it. I have a 16X48 intex. I said last summer was the last time I was dealing with those cartridges. No matter how many times I hosed it off, it never came completely clean and it was back to filthy the next day. So this year, we upgraded to sand. We've only had it about two weeks and it's awesome. The price for this was great, especially since we took advantage of the site to store. I'm already recommending it to other people. 06/21/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Already saving money! We have been running this on our Intex pool with the salt-water system for about a month now. I have to say that this is the best purchase we have made in a long time. I only have to clean our pool about once a week now (I was having to clean it 2-3 times a week) and the water is crystal clear! The initial expense may put some folks off, but just think about the $10 filters that are supposed to be changed once a week! The system is so easy to install and even easier to use. I love that we can set it to run only a few hours a day, it really cuts down our electricity bill! 07/21/2011
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Pump Bordering on full professional pool pump. Great product and so much better than any of the standard pumps that use filters. Its amazing how much you get for the money. I've tried a few different pumps and was using a 2000GPH intex pump with Pletex filters (the real filters). This leaves all of that in the dust. Nothing beats sand and when you start to get low output you simply backwash and rinse the sand following the directions they supply. Instead of cleaning the filter every night like I used to do, I backwash the sand about once a week. Instructions say 55lbs of sand. You can do one 50lb bag and be fine. Only negative is it's only 1600gph, which is borderline okay with a vacuum. If they could get this to 2000gph it would be perfect. Still I will never go back to any other type of filter. This is it. 06/19/2011
