Have an this pump for 3 months now and my pool is Chrystal is
Clear. It took about a week to figure it out. But with help from customer service it's working like a charm. Great value for the results.
Cons. Need options to purchase adaptors for the connections.
Better instructions .
Customer service was great for trouble shooting
We purchased this sand filter for our above the ground intex pool 18 x 24' and it does not work on it. there is no way to attach the hoses to the pool and there is no adapter kit for it.
Purchased this pump less than a month, hooked up to pool for less than a week, quit working. Pump just hums, book says that centrifical switch is stuck in open position and does not tell you how to correct or fix or anything.
I use this on a 22ft dia. pool 54" deep and it keeps it clean and clear. I also use a zappy automatic pool vac and it works great with this also
This pump has worked very well so far.
I have an 18 ft summer escapes quick set pool and we did have to do some modifications. We also bought a new skimmer (from Walmart, $20) and hoses (ace hardware). If you change the skimmer things will be so much easier. You will have to buy hoses though. The one thing that was tricky was the directions on how to put the pump together. My husband is very good at figuring out that kind of thing. But if you arent I could see it being difficult for some. I did look on the Internet for instructions but I never could find them. There is a plastic piece that looks more like trash but it is important. The piece covers the middle pipe thing when you put the sand in. As far as how this works, it's amazing! The difference between the sand filter and the paper cartridge filter is like, night and day. (The sand filter being the better one) This sand filter was plenty big enough for my pool too. For anyone who may not know; you shouldn't run the sand filter while you swim. It can suck too much air in and mess up the filter. I run mine at night. I highly recommend getting one. The reason for 4 stars was because of the lack of instructions when putting it together.
i need the pump for my pool and it came fast before it was to come
Motor is noisy and pump lacks decent suction.ok for above ground pool use.
Very disappointed with this pump and filter. First one I received would barely pump 100 gph after the sand compacted not the 2400 gph as advertised. Called customer service to complain and they offered to send a replacement. New pump worked much better but still not the flow rate advertised. I believe the flow rate of 2400 gph is straight through pumping not attached to filter tank. Unit is underpowered with 1/3 horsepower motor and very loud. I offered to return the first one but they didn't even want it back. Cheap price but not worth the money, would not recommend this to anyone!!
Easy to clean great pumping pressure highly recommended
No issues at all with this item.
it works good
We were so tired of the filter pumps. The cost to replace the filters almost every other day was horrible. We decided to go with a sand filter pump. Best decision ever!!!! It works great and has cut down our chemicals tremendously!!!! Great purchase!!!
Had to put a 2 inch clamp to make it work other than that it's fine
Was easy to set up once I purchased the needed hoses, clamps and of course sand. Hope I don't ever need to replace gaskets as the screws are plastic and likely won't come out without damage. So far working great and very quiet.
The instructions need to be expanded, connections and where they go. Works great, very satisfied with product.
The pump works fine, the only problem we had was that the instructions are not very detailed. We had parts that were shown on the parts list but not mentioned in the instructions. If we weren't already familiar with a swimming pool pump, we would not have known what to do with these parts.
I have it on a small 1000 gal pool and it works great for this compared to a small intex unit i had before. Backflush it every three weeks or so to maintain flow, (but i live in the desert--lots of dust here) For my small pool use it works very good keeps the pool crystal clear
RECEIVED IN GOOD SHAPE, EXCITED TO GET IT HOOKED UP AND START CLEANING THE POOL! HAD TO GET THE SAND AND FILLED UP. PLUGGED IN AND MOTOR HUMMED BUT DID NOT WORK. CALLED WALMART AND THEY TOLD ME TO CALL THE MANUFACTURER...3-6 WEEKS FOR NEW ONE AND HOPE IT WORKS OR HAVE IT FIXED BY AN ELECTRICIAN, WERE OUR CHOICES. MADE ME MAD....BUT I PAID $112 TO HAVE MOTOR LOOKED AT AND FOUND BEARINGS WERE LOCKED UP AND STYROFOAM IN FAN!! OMG....I AM GLAD I GOT IT ON SALE....COST THE SAME AS ORIGINAL PRICE WITH REPAIRS!
