The water went crystal clear in less than a week.
The filter I used was this one: I quickly found a just a new motor was priced outrageous, almost the cost of the pool!! I researched and found people have been adapting this pump to their pools For almost half the cost All hoses were the same size and we were able to hook it up with little effort. The weight of the output hose was heavier than the old one, so we used zip ties for extra support. The directions for putting it together are a bit vague.
I had to watch several YouTube videos to figure out exactly how to fill the filter with sand. The hose fittings are smaller than the average pump so my hoses were all a little to big. The hose clamps that come with it are flimsy and I broke 2 of them just trying to get the hoses tight enough that they wouldn't leak.
A quick trip to Walmart for some sturdy clamps and I was in business. Although I had to use 2 clamps per fitting due to the fittings being a little to small for the hoses. But all in all. It's a pretty good set up. I have a 16' round pool and it works well for that. Had it set up for a couple weeks now with no issues. You get what you pay for. Intex 3,Gallon Sand Filter Pump. I got this today after getting sick of buying the type A filters for my standard Intex pump. The is a great item, you just have to consider a few things.
This pump directly connects with that style pool, but also includes all the adaptors you may need. Helpful tips -Follow the directions! They are simple and will lead you in the right direction. So i went to lowes no fittings fit, i dont even know if the pump works or not. It comes with1 fitting and hose. The rest is up to you to find in the fittings in the mythical pluming section. Not to mention that they don't have the size cause it's an in between size I don't know I'm not a plumber.
Needless to say now I have to make a 3rd trip to someplace different that may or may not have the magical components that should have come with the pump to start with. And don't even get me started on customer services that are a joke at best. If by some random miracle i get this up and running i might update the pump funtions but I don't know yet.

If you have a Skimmer type pool, I suggest getting the solid cover for the bottom, but we did work around that problem when we hooked up our incoming line. After reading all the reviews and researching various sand filter pumps we bought this one.
The instructions are horrible. Hooking it up to the pool - what a joke. When it arrived the box the pump was in was damaged but the Amazon shipping box was fine.
After inspecting the pump everything look in good condition so we continued with installation. We have had this pump for a month and it hasn't worked.
Setting up your sand filter system for an above ground pool may seem like a difficult task, but it is actually quite easy. There are 3 hoses for you to connect when. Winterizing your above-ground pool requires you to drain the sand filter and the pump. Winterization also requires you to disconnect the hoses for the pool.
There is no pressure whatsoever. We haven't been able to use our pool for over a month because of all the problems this filter has caused. Way way better than the original that came with our colmen pool.
It was an easy set up, everything works perfectly and makes the pool sparkle! Only down side is we had to put a hair dryer to the hoses that came with the pump to stretch them out to fit, but once they did we had no other trouble. Just make sure u buy the adapters for the hoses to fit the pool holes. We got ours at Leslie's.
Does what it's supposed to do. Instructions arent great and wish it had a leaf catcher attached to the pump. Also, the first week, the setup worked great with plenty of pressure but after that, it's as good as the cheap pumps that come with the above ground pools.
Gauge doesn't work and has water in it and there isn't a power button switch. So like everyone on here, I have a walmart gallon pool. The skimmer filter that came with the pool just moved the water around, didnt really keep pool clean. I was spending an hour each morning before work just getting the pool clean.
I purchased this filter, and only have to maintain this filter once per week. I can go make more money, I just cant make more time, so this is a very smart investment if you want to get 5 hours of your life back per week Just push the button and buy it. I used my pump.
