This website contains a copy of the owners manual for the S180T pool filter. It should have all of the information that you need.

It is in PDF format. let me know if you have any trouble opening it.

How do a fix an intex sand pump that will not turn on

Sounds like you have experienced a common problem. Your pump apparently had failed. The motor is in need of replacement. If this is so: my suggestion is to replace with a real Pool Industry Pump! Not an Intex toy.
Have a service provider come out and confirm this, if you can't do it yourself, then if it is confirmed that your pump failed, get one from a Pool Industry Supplier with a real pool pump like: Pentair, Hayward, Waterway or Jandy/Zodiac.

Index sand filter pump SF 20110 will not blow water into pool

I don't know how much time you are giving it, but sometimes when I start my pump, it'll take 20 minutes or so for it to start a full stream of water. Also, make sure the valves are turned to the unlock position on the incoming and outgoing hoses.

Wish to upgrade cartridge filter pump to sand filter pump. Pool size 15' X 48" / pump 1000 gph - 637R /Item no 56945 Which intex sand filter is the best one?

First, understand that sand doesn't filter as finely as cartridges, so "upgrade" may be the wrong word. Cartridges filter down to about 10 microns, sand filters to 25-30 microns. (i.e.the cartridge will catch particles up to 3X smaller than sand will.)

If you still want to change, get the biggest sand filter available that you can comfortably afford. For superior results look at above ground pump/filter packages built by Hayward or Pentair. Intex products are just built to margin and are not designed for long term usage.

Impeller in intex model 635 broken where can I buy replacement part?

A late answer but it might help future Intex impleller sufferers... they do not sell replacement parts and you won't find any impellers sold separately anywhere on the planet. I've had 1 Intex pool and 3 Intex filter pumps in 3 years. Last week the 3rd pump's impeller broke as well. I shan't buy their products again.

Hi- I'm a new intex above ground metal frame pool owner. I bought the saltwater chlorinator to go with my pool. I constantly have a problem with the pool filter not getting enough water to flow through...

You've gotta keep that annoying filter pretty darn clean to please the saltwater pump. I have to scrub my filters daily for this reason. What pump do you have? Mine is rated for 4000gph but I see Intex even offers support for pumps with as little as 500gph.

Same as others with Krystal clear model 635 pump.

We too have an Intex pool and opted to not waste money on their pumps which arent adequate enough to properly filter the pool. We bought a nice sand filter system off a great seller on amazon for $305 delivered. (DO NOT BUY "GAME" system for intex pools, my sister bought one and has had nothing but problems and just bought 5 weeks ago).

We are very happy with the results from our Waterway sand filter system. We did not have to buy any adapters to fit it to our pool. And it keeps the water perfect! We have an 18' x 52 metal frame pool. If you intend on using your pool for years, I recommend buying a sand filter system. It is more expensive than replacing the intex pump, but you will be much happier with the sand filter system.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Currently have a filter pump that hangs on side of pool. want to purchase a larger (1500gph)pump. these all sit on ground

I recommend upgrading to sand filter system. You can get a good one from Amazon seller for $305.00 delivered. Pump made by Waterway. (we are very pleased with ours). The intex pumps just aren't sufficient for the pools they come supplied with IMO. It's a little more pricey than upgrading an Intex pump, but so worth it.

I hope this has helped. Good luck!

Intex Easy Set 530 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump does this keep your pool clean when running all the time?

No, the filters/pumps are much to weak. Not only is that filter too small for the pool but it is a cartridge filter which is the cheapest form of filtration. I hate to break it to you but a good pump/motor/filter is going to cost you around $600-$800.
