No more filter cartridges...woohoo!!!
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!!!

great to replace the cheap cartridge filter

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'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 US Deal Mall 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.

Easy to use and good quality

Verified purchase

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.

Easy to install and operate.

Can't be beat for the money. Size is perfect. Hooks up in minutes. All parts are quality and effective. I replaced and old pump/fillter system with this one and the installation was a breeze. When I followed instructions the system went into run mode immediately when turned on. I really like the self-timing mode. Ship to store was very convenient, too.

Easy to switch over from the original small filter that came with the pool. Had no issues changing over the filter hoses with the adapters that were sent. Other than buying the sand and finding bolts to put the two sections together the ease of putting the unit together and getting it up and running in the pool was less than an hour. So far so good with keeping the pool clear, not sure if because it is sand and it needs to settle in but do find that I have had to clean the bottom a little more often but I just throw the little rover in and cleans up for use within an hour. As for not having to spend more time and money changing out those cartridge filters within the past two weeks that I have used the Krystal Clear I have already saved myself money. Glad I changed over to this filter.

Great for above ground pools

Verified purchase

I replaced my cartridge filter on an intex 15' x 48" framed pool with this sand filter and it is awesome. I also have the saltwater chlorinator and these two together make pool maintenance a breeze. You'll still have to vacuum the bottom and skim the top, but the water stays clean and clear. FYI, don't empty your salt water pool down the storm drains at the end of summer. Drain it into your sanitary drain so the water goes through the treatment plant or soak it into your yard.

If you buy a pool you MUST buy this filter also. We have always bought an Intex pool for our children but this year was the first time I purchased this type of Pump, WHY HAVE I WAITED SO LONG! Along with our Salt water pump my days of buying chemical after chemical to make our pool water clear is a thing of the past. I never wanted to pay the extra money for another filter since the pools come with one anyways but it will ABSOLUTLY pay off.

Good for the smaller pools.

Verified purchase

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.

Does a great job!

Verified purchase

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.)

1. Yes it will but I still use the one on the wall to pull out the stuff on top of water

2. 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.

6. 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.

1. Yes just like any pool they will always need chemicals

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

3. 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

6. 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.
