All of the feedback that I read on this model talks about how great the salt water system is. I'm confused because it seems that people are reviewing the salt water system instead of this particular sand pump. ???? I'm eager to order the sand pump, but want to make sure I'm getting a sand pump and not something that I have to use in conjunction with the salt sanitizer.

  • A. I agree with you. It is confusing and they are 2 separate items! While I do have both, I just purchased the sand filter this year & I really like it! No more filters!! You can use it without the salt system, but I highly recommend using it also. You can get the timers set so they basically take care of themselves!

  • A. No it just replaces your filter pump basically instead of buying filters a bag of sand cost under 10.00 and should last for a long time..you dont take sand pump apart to clean it is simply turning a dial to filter then when it gets dirty ..turn to back wash.. till water runs clean then rinse and back to filter. It is wonderful and so easy

  • A. This pool comes with a great pump and filter system. It really seems to do a good job of moving the water. (Some of the cheaper brands have smaller pumps which I don't think do as good of a job of keeping the water clean). It does not come with a sand filter. You can also use it without the saltwater chlorinator and use chemicals instead.

OMG..This is product is GREAT!!! we got our pool last year at this time & even though we didn't have it open for long,I was out alot of money on pool chemical's. So one day my husband was talking to his friend about it & he told him about his neighbor having the saltwater pool filter & how great it was.So we decided that we would get one this year & try it out & let me tell you it is GREAT.It is very easy to set up. We had it up & running in no time.We have a 24x24 pool & we put seven 40lb bags of mortons pool salt in it(You can get it at certain walmarts) & that was it! we haven't had to add anymore all summer long & the water feels great sort of silky feeling it makes your skin feel good. The salt is less then $6.00 a bag!! Now you figure it up & see how much money you would save.It pays for itself in one summer.I recommend it to everyone thinking about getting one. ;)

We have bought several pools over the last 8 years for our son. He has Autism and a pool is the one thing that really makes him happy when he plays outside. Every year we have fought with algae and water clarity, spending lots of money on chlorine tabs and trying to keep the chemicals away from our son. This year we decided to buy a metal frame pool and try the Salt Water System. The unit was easy to set up and worked great the first day. It stopped working after 13 days but Intex was great about it and had another out to me within a week. Even during the time it was down, the water stayed clear and fresh. We live on the Gulf Coast with temperatures around 100 degrees so the water usually gets green easy. It has not happened at all this summer. I was under the illusion that you just added salt and that was it. This type of chlorination will raise your PH so you have to keep an eye on it and add something to lower it when needed. Other chemicals or additives may need to be added but it is still so much better than chemical chlorine. Anyone who has a pool and wants an easy, natural source of chlorine should get this. Safer than the chemical type, no chlorine smell and it pays for itself when you consider how much you could be spending on chlorine tablets, algaecide, and other chemicals you probably won't need with this system. Photo is of the water the first day. It actually is so clear now, it looks like something you wouldn't mind drinking. I would not recommend that, though.

Great product, water is Krystal clear. Very easy to connect to My Sunshine - 15' x 42" Metal-Frame Pool, using adapter and metal clamps provided with sanitizer (see pic). Product recommended starting with 100 pounds of salt for 4000 gallons of water, but I only used 80 pounds of salt. I did this because if the high salt light comes on the only way to lower the salt level is to partially drain the pool and then refill it. I figured it would be better to start with less salt and to add more if needed. So far system has worked great with less than the recommended amount of salt, but I did purchase another bag to have if needed. Other than the occasional vacuuming and daily bug dipping the water stays clear, and does not burn eyes. The water has a slight salty taste but not bad. Way better than using chlorine. System runs for 2 hours at night on automatic timer. Had to purchase a separate outdoor timer for pool filter pump because salt water system will not work unless filter pump is on. Would highly recommend this system.

I have thier pool and the pump that came with thier pool. And had a heck of a time setting it up. The hose from the salt water system to the pump was to large to fit the pump outlet. Gave tech a call, Oh just rap it with tape and make it work. OK, Wraped it with half a roll of teflon plumber tape and sqweezed it on and tightend it till it worked. System kept reading low flow. With thier pump. I had to elevate the system in steps and keep the discharge end proped up at an angle to keep all the bubbles it creates while working flowing out enough for it to work. BUT now that the bugs are worked out, It does do just what they say it suposed to do. Had to run boost three times to catch up. But it runs great and keeps right up now.
