<p>Keep your pool water safe and clean with Intex Sand Filter Pump. Hydro Aeration Technology is incorporated into the unit to provide improved circulation and filtration, improved water clarity and increased negative ions at the water surface. Sand filters are one of the most popular ways to keep pool water clean because they can pick up a lot more of the small algae, dirt particles and other detritus floating around in your pool. Not only is the Intex filter pump effective, it also saves on money and time as it needs replacement just once every five years, not every two weeks like a regular filter cartridge pump. It's also easy to maintain and is a practical alternative to keep your water sanitized. This swimming pool sand filter pump sports a six-function control valve which enables you to filter, backwash, rinse, recirculate, drain and close the system. It includes a 24-hour automatic timer and a safety shut-off feature.</p>

If you have well water, this is the pump for you!
We set up our new intex pool using well water, only to have it turn coffee with cream colored after adding chlorine. We spent hundreds of dollars on chemicals trying to get the iron out of the pool. After trying for almost a week, we ordered the Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter. Once it arrived, we got it all hooked up in a matter of 15 minutes, and running. We ran it constantly for 3 days, only adding chlorine, and ph minus to the water,and back washed frequently. I was so happy to wake up on the 3rd day to crystal clear water! I honestly didn't know if this was going to be the answer to our problem, and really thought that I was going to have to empty the pool and start all over again. This filter is awesome and well worth the money! If you have well water, just save yourself the trouble and go get one of these right from the start!

Pump Defective Brand New Out of Box
I do not recommend this pump to anyone. After spending an entire weekend troubleshooting why this pump continually pumped sand into the pool, we gave up. It was a lot of labor and wasted time. Yes, we followed the DVD precisely, and yes, we made sure to buy the correct filter sand. This pump was defective right out of the box.

Keeps pool clean, saves money!

Verified purchase

We bought this halfway through summer after buying and setting up the Intex 22'x52" pool. The filter that comes with the pool is a cheap paper cartridge filter system and I felt like it never got the pool completely clean. We added this sand filter after I saw the price drop online, and it is so much easier! No more spending $20 at a time for cartridge filters. (Intex really should just offer this pump with the bigger pools!!!) We also have the Intex Ozone saltwater system that I bought local from someone. Together the water has stayed nice and clean. I have not had to shock the water since I bought the sand filter. (I had to shock it 3 times with the old filter). Set up was ok, just follow the directions! This pump is also much more powerful and really circulates the water! Does just what it says it should do.

Sand Filter Pump

Verified purchase

The Intex 2,800 GPH Sand Filter Pump is ultimately the best investment I have made for my backyard. The pump comes well packaged and arrived ahead of schedule. The instruction is straightforward and easy to follow. It connected to my Coleman 26" above ground pool with no problems. The six-function control valve makes life simpler to backwash and rinses the filter. The waste setting is right for vacuuming the pool to get rid of large debris bypassing the filter. Having and automatic times are great to set it and forget it so while you are away or distracted your pool is getting filtered. Upon first assembly and a pool fool of algae after not closing the pool for the winter or running the old cartridge filter. The pool was cleaning up in less than 3 hours of operation. It requires about 77 lbs of sand easy to fill. The pressure gauge is great to let you know when you need to backwash the filter for preventive maintenance. If you are in the market for a sand filter, don't hesitate I can honestly say you will be a proud customer after this purchase and wonder what took you so long to switch over. I have been in the market looking for a sand filter since last year I have run across quite some pricey filters. So, I was a little skeptical of the price. For the price, you are getting a lot more than you paid.

Thank you for posting your review! Many customers enjoy the ease and convenience of using a sand filter as opposed to a standard cartridge filer. We are happy you are enjoying your purchase.

Don't waste another day with that cartidge filter!

Verified purchase

Excellent quality pump, valve and tank. While the value can't be beet it is the performance that really makes me happy. No more poor suction or daily cleaning of the cartridge filter. This is the filter that should come with higher end Intex pools! I also have the Intex salt water system in line with this filter. Both of these items reduce the pool maintenance to 10% of what it was. No more green pool! I highly recommend the investment to make your pool more enjoyable this summer.

Great upgrade

Verified purchase

This product was very easy to setup, but for models made after 2013 do not contain the plunger valves or B adapters, you would need to call Intex to get them. Otherwise it is working great. We used one night and it already started cleaning out pool. had to stop due to severe weather. Plus side, no more filters (especially since A type is hard to find).

Great Price for combo!

Verified purchase

This is the 2nd pump I have had to buy for my pool and I was shocked at the price when I realized it came with the sand filter, cover, hoses, gauge and literally everything. I've bought piece parts over the years off the Intex store directly to know that a pump alone costs 150 and just the top cover with the handle off the sand filter is a $60 value itself. This doesn't even include hoses (and yes the rubber water-tight connections are included). Even though I only needed the pump I know within the next 2 years everything else will need replaced so I'm storing it all in the shed

So much better than a cartridge filter

Verified purchase

We have a 22ft round intex pool. We could not get it to stay clean and algae build up wouldn't go away. We were gonna take it down but decided to try a new filter. Best decision ever! Very easy to assemble. Uses about 70 lbs of sand. Which will run around $20.00 but lasts 5 years. Very powerful! Cleared our pool in a day. Now we only have to run it for about 4 hours or less per day. And no filters to rinse. Just vaccuum and backwash the dirty water. Highly recommended, and you can't beat the price. Good quality, very durable.

So far so good, but...........

Verified purchase

We purchased for our 18x48 Intex Easy up pool. The sand filter seems to be doing the job but we had to purchase additional hose adapters for our pool. I would have been happier, considering the amount paid, if adapters would have been included or if it was noted that additional items are required. I assume this is designed for the metal frame. We are also having to buy 2 valves which were not included.

love it but needed optional adapter

Verified purchase

After recieving pump I realized that I needed the adapter to hook hoses to the input and output connectors since I have a smaller pool. Would have been nice to know this so could have ordered them at the same time and not have to pay extra shiiping to rush the item from the intex website. The $6 part cost $22 to get it here before 4th of july. But it all works great now.

Missing items

Verified purchase

First of all customer service was terrible... US Deal Mall was especially good with handling my request for information.. However, the supplier of the item ordered through wal mart was horrible... The package came earlier than expected a plus... Then we found missing screws and bolts.... No where did the add say it didn't come with the sand.... This advertisement should say what comes with the product or whats not included....when I tried to explain to the supplier about missing parts they wanted me to send them a receipt.. If I ordered it it seems to me they would know it was paid for they are the ones who shipped it.. Needless to say I went out bought what I needed because my pool man was getting paid by the hour!!!!!!!

6. Here's the reasoning: The sand bottle is about two feet high. In the middle is a measuring stick, tells you the minimum and maximum amount of sand. I just got mine together yesterday. The 50 pound bag of sand did not reach the minimum on the stick. All the water in your pool goes directly into the sand bottle - to be filtered through - then back into the pool. The less amount of sand in your sand bottle, the less water getting filtered through the sand - and the more sand in your sand bottle, the more water getting filtered through the sand. Hence, about 70 pounds of sand should put it close to the max on your stick.

2. 1) nope 2) not that I know of...check with a pool store. Wally sells pool water salt so I am rather confident a filter works for either one.

4. This is simply a filter, it is not a replacement for chlorine or any other pool cleaner. For salt water, you would also need to purchase the salt water system. Well worth the investment.
