  • A. All pools require care to keep the water clear and hygienically clean. Proper chemical control and an Intex filter pump will help attain this objective. Both will be needed in order to properly maintain the pool. Consult your local pool supply store as to which chemicals you should use and how to use them. This can vary greatly by region.

  • A. Yes unless you have the salt water chlorine generator. If you don't want to spend the $200.00 for that you can just but the floating container and put a chlorine tablet in the floating device...that worked for me last year until I purchased the salt water chlorine generator

  • A. You will still have to use chemicals. The sand filter circulates the water and removes the particulates, but it doesn't add chlorine.

  • A. The Intex Krystal Clear 12G Sand Filter has only been tested by the manufacturer on Intex above-ground pools. The skimmer in question is an actual pump manufactured by a different company. It has not been tested, therefore, there is no guarantee our Sand Filter will work on a non-Intex pool.

  • A. well it replaces a paper filter pump, a skimmer is not a pump, I don't like the skimmer they sell by the way, intex deluxe, it does not stay in pool, it comes up and reeks havoc with your pump while adding airt to system, had to take off, and trash.

I bought this pump for my Summer Escapes 12 ft pool with side skimmer. I got to tell you this pump is a match made in heaven. It was a bit of a challenge converting it over to attach to my Pool since intex is slightly different but once you figure it out it was easy sailing. To connect the skimmer I bought a adaptor on amazon " Game 4552" adaptor(highly recomend, will increase flow). Then I connected the plunger valve to the inlet with some plumber's tape to provide a good seal. After that I just ran the hose from plunger to skimmer..Perfect!! For the outlet I removed the Summer Escapes Outlet and replaced with the intex one. I had to open up the hole a tad by using a exacto blade. Pump was easy to assemble and easy to fill with sand. I have it up and running now and it is awesome..the time is great! Love being able to backwash the dirty water. It makes such an improvement to the clarity of the water and not having to deal with those exspensive and useless cartridges. My water is crystal!! This pump is great for vacuuming the pool. One more thing..I put a few small rocks in the pool skimmer basket to weigh it down when the pump turns off. Hope this helps..the pump is worth it!!!

We bought this to replace the horrible cartridge filter pump that comes with the intex pool (we have the 15 foot one) Our pool would NOT stay clean it was dirty and kept turning green even with pool chemicals! This sand filter pump is amazing! Our pool is clear and clean all the time! Great investment! We plan on getting the saltwater system soon as it says they work together! The only thing is I don't understand why I paid $130 online and picked up same day and it sells for $199 in store? Thats a huge difference!

I bought this pump to replace the small standard pump that was included with my 14' x 48" pool. It was a little difficult to put together since I had zero pool pump experience however an instructional DVD was included that was EXTREMELY helpful. I assembled the pump myself in minutes after purchasing the 40lbs of sand that was not included. I've been using it for a week now and it definitely works much better at keeping the pool clean. I've noticed the pump alerting me to backwash already which I found to be a little strange since it really hasn't been used that much. As I reviewed other customers reviews of this product I noticed that seemed to be a common issue so it relaxed my mind. I would definitely recommend someone with an above ground pool 18' or smaller to spend the money on this product. Other than the additional purchase of sand, I believe it will save money since I will not be constantly buying and replacing the filter as I was with the smaller pump.

I'm so glad all of the supercenters (all 4 near me - Southaven, Hernando, Olive Branch and Whitehaven) were all out of the pool pump I was looking for so I chose to try to find it online through the Wal-Mart website. At the store, the item was priced at $200, but through the website it was only $122. I saved not only $78 but the additional tax. There was no shipping/processing/handling fee either. The product actually arrived in less than a week...and it's running like a dream. The DVD provided by the manufacturer was extremely helpful...a little confusing at first, but after watching it bit by by and trying to follow the steps and actually skipping a step or two and trying to do it my own way, I found out that the guy on the DVD knew what he was doing. Thank you for the opportunity to purchase from your website and have the item shipped directly to my home.

I have a 15' x 42" Summer Escapes pool. I have found the customer support from this company to be extremely poor. I went on YouTube to finally get some answers on how to get it installed. It works like a dream most of the time, but I need to back wash after every 4 hour session and my vacuum will only work for a few minutes, then the filter needs back washing. The pool is so much cleaner that with the stock filter and pump, though! Overall, I am happy with this product.

Ordered this filter to replace the dinky one that came with the pool we bought last summer. It looked pretty intimidating in the box but once my husband and I read the installation booklet setup was pretty quick. What they don't tell you is that the inlet and outlet pool wall connection will not fit the 15' x 48" pool and in order to install them you would actually have to cut a hole in your pool and then install the connections with the gaskets provided. Which isn't really hard but we had already set up our pool for the summer and didn't want to lower the water to do it. The filter works great and within less than 24 hours has cleared the oily suntan oil film from the top of the water. The only other suggestion is unless you want to flood your yard with pool water when backwashing, my husband used a standard plumbing connection and attached a blue hose to it so we could backwash away from the pool area. Have thoroughly enjoyed this pool and with the new filter and salt water system hope there is less maintenance this year.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

We had the pump that came with our Intex 16'x48" pool for two and a half years. This summer it decided to quit. We'd been having a hard time finding filters that truly fit it and trying to clean or replace those lousy paper filters (at $10 a pop!) was getting old! For $50 more than a substandard replacement, we purchased the Intex Krystal Clear 12G Sand Filter. Wow! Wise decision. Will never go back to paper filters. It just works! Very Well! The 6-way valve makes cleaning it out a breeze; so much quicker and easier than the 7-10 step headache it used to take with the other filter pump. The timer is great, too, and ensures the filter turns on and off even if you have to be out of town for a time. This is not a "you get what you pay for"....this is getting much better than what you pay for! We've been pleasantly surprised and pleased with Intex. Hopefully they'll stay around as a strong, reliable and consistent company for the "lower-end" budget. For our family of six, we intend to upgrade to their 32'x16'x52" pool next year and will add their salt water filtration chlorinator as well.

Purchased this to use with my Intex 18x10x42 easy set-up oval frame pool. Set-up was easy and operation is very easy. I was impressed with the strength of the water flow that this produces, even though I had to neck-it-down to fit the Intex Pool connection points. Have had it installed for three weeks and no issues yet. Back-flushing is very easy and effective. I am very pleased with this purchase.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I am very pleased at how well this keeps my water clear and blue. We have tried for several years the small filters that came with the pools and was always disappointed because we would have to drain the water and start over just to keep the water clear. We bought a bigger pool (14' x 48") this year, and decided to go with the sand filter with the hopes that it would keep the water clearer. So far (3 weeks) water is still clear!! The only complaint was we bought an Intex pool and when we ordered the Intex sand filter the connection hoses were not the same size as the pool hose connection. Thank goodness my husband came up with a way to connect the filter to the pool!! Intex should be aware and make their products work together!!!!!! (The filter hose was bigger than the pool hole in the pool.)
