Question about Intex Krystal Clear Model 635 Pool Filter Pump 1500 Gph

1 Answer

Intex krystal clear 1500 gph 635t filter pump runs loud for a few seconds then shuts off

HELP! Mechanically clueless mom! I have had the pump for about two years with no issues, always stored for winter. I am now trying to open my pool, and once hooked up my pump will run loudly for 10-30 seconds and then shuts off. (not breaker, properly primed, and checked outlet) If I shut it off and try to turn it back on right away nothing happens, but after about 10 min it will start... and then stop again. I have taken the side panel off and the little fan looks like it is still in good shape, but it won't turn if I lightly try to spin it (I'm not even sure it is supposed to if not on) LOL,I'm still fighting with two of the screws to take off the top plastic covering. I can not afford to replace this pump at the moment. Does anyone have any idea what could be the issue and if there is any way to, at the least, temporarily fix it until I can afford a replacement??

    Oh, and for the few seconds that the pump does run the suction and output seem fine.

SOURCE: Need help downsizing pool pump connection

Okay. I think I gotcha covered.

I have one mocked up here right in front of me.

Still going on the PVC pipe assumption...

- Install a PVC 1 1/2 " - 1" reducer on the new pump nipple.

- Install a short piece (nipple) of 1 1/2" PVC pipe in the reducer installed on the pump

- Install an 1 1/2" MIP adapter (PVC) on the 1 1/2 " nipple

- Screw the hose onto the threaded 1 1/2" MIP adapter.

There are several ways to do this -- the above is a good way.

Have you ever mated PVC piping/adapters with solvent? I can help you with the details of this if your unfamiliar with it...

No, the pump should not be noisy. It sounds like you have picked up a foreign object in the pump housing. you may have to pull the face off to determine. OR the pump/motor is indeed defective and should be returned.

SOURCE: my intex pool pump is surging and won't stay primed???

i think its pump side first as its easier to push water through a filter rarther than trying to **** it , Also the only reason it could loose its prime is through air getting in the system.

Check to be sure the filter and baskets are clean, as you need proper water presure to have unit run.

SOURCE: Pump and skimmer instructions on how to

Direction of flow is FROM the skimmer to the pump and back to the jet. Its easy enough to determine which hose is the "jet" hose and which is the suction hose. Put both into the water, or in a bucket and turn on the pump, find the one that is shooting out water, that's the jet hose. On these systems, filter replacement and cleaning is annoyingly frequent if you want it to work even remotely efficient.

Tip

Basic Swimming Pool Care


<p>Basic Pool Care Tips<br /> <ol> <li>Test chlorine and pH at least 3 times per week. Have a comprehensive water test every 6-8 weeks at your local pool store. There is generally no charge for this test.</li> <li>Operate pool equipment a minimum of 6-8 hours per day during winter months and for 10-12 hours per day during the summer for greatest overall benefit.</li> <li>Brush the pool walls and floor a minimum of once a week.</li> <li>To prevent damage to pool equipment make sure the water level never drops below the opening of the skimmer.</li> <li>Lubricate backwash valve "O" rings on sand and DE filter four times a year. Lubricate pump lid "O" ring periodically with Lube specifically designed for use with swimming pool equipment.<br /><br /><img src="water_1.jpg" /><br /><br /></li> <li>Test pH and add muriatic acid as indicated to maintain pH between 7.4 - 7.8. Never add more than 1 pint of acid at a time and wait at least 1 hour between treatments. Always add muriatic acid by dispersing into pool water opposite the skimmer and disperse as far away from the wall of the pool as you can safely reach. Use care not to drip acid or any chemicals on deck as it will cause deck etching and staining. Do not pour acid over steps, benches, or pool light. Make sure water is circulating.</li> <li>Clean waterline tile with cleaner a minimum of once a month during peak season.</li> <li>One month after initial pool start-up, add stain and scale inhibitor on a regular basis.</li> <li>Always follow manufacturers instructions on product labels.</li> <li><b>NEVER ADD WATER TO CHEMICALS</b> - Add chemicals to water.</li> <li>Always wait one (1) hour between adding different chemicals unless otherwise directed. <ul> <li><b>Filters:</b> <ul> <li><b>Sand Filters:</b> Backwash once per week</li> <li><b>DE Filters:</b> Backwash once filter pressure increases 8-10 psi above your "clean pressure" noted at start-up.</li> <li><b>Cartridge Filters:</b> Need to be taken apart and elements need to be cleaned once filter pressure increases 8-10 psi above your "clean pressure."

Step One - Debris & Chemicals
Remove any debris from pool water by use of a leaf rake attachment.
Add the appropriate amount of shock treatment to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Add the appropriate amount of algecide to the pool water, as prescribed on the packaging.
Run your filter for the appropriate time to circulate all water once.
(see your filter documentation for your size pool)
Install your floating Dispenser and winterizing tablets.

Step Two - Vacuum & Water Level
Vacuum your pool while setting your filter to the "back wash" or "waste" setting.
(this will help lower your water level)
After vacuuming, install the sump pump and drain pool to about 6 inches below your thru-the-wall skimmer.

Center pipe was cracked when we took it out to replace the sand what would cause this plus there was sand under the bottom cover


Typically, the cracking of internal filter tank components is due to freezing temperatures over the Winter season. You should always COMPLETELY drain all water from your filter and store it inside during the winter.


Another reason is over chlorination of your pool water and/or adding chemicals directly to your water thru the wall skimmer.

How do I winterize my krystal clear sand filter pump


The manual might provide some insight but usually the Intex pools are vinyl and are taken down and stored indoors for the winter. This makes a lot of sense in most areas because they won't be used in the winter and if you kept it set up the sun, wind, and temperature affects the plastics, etc. so that its lifespan is reduced. If it is stored in a place that freezes then you would need to make double sure there is no water in the equipment.

I hope this helps.

Water leaks out the top of the filter housing. I ordered "o" ring 10266 (filter housing "o" ring) and it is too larger. Where can I find a schematic with part numbers.


Here's the diagram for the 635T.. The o-ring for the top valve should be part number 10264- #3...small o-ring. The housing cover is the bigger o-ring 10325 #5.. Hope this helps you...
