Question about Intex 2500 Gallon Sand N Sun Pool Replacement Filter Pump Only

1 Answer

Pool Pump - keeps getting air

I have an 18' Intex above ground pool. My filter uses the A cartridge and does not appear to be cleaning my pool. When i open the cartridge area I notice there is a lot of air.

I do have circulation, but i've never had my filter appear to only be half full of water. The cartridge is clearly only being filled half way.

Any suggestions?

It sounds like you might not be getting enough suction on your pool filter. I would check all of the hose connections for cracks, loose fittings, etc. If you are getting any extra air, it will cause your pressure to decrease.

How do i clean and backwash my krystal clear saltwater system model cs8110 pool. Also it is very cloudy and I cant see the bottom of my pool


Hello... Is this your first pool? If so, do you have a local pool chemical supply company? They will test a sample of your pool water with way better equipment than the test strips... Than they will tell you exactly what you need and how to apply them... This is my 4th year with this salt system and 18'x 4' intex pool... Starting them up is tricky and it still takes me weeks to get it right... But the pool store told me how to start it up for next year so hopefully it won't take as long...
The phrase backwash referes to cleaning the filter... With the intex filter/pump system, that is the filter cargtridge that inserts into the pump/filter housing... Close the pool valves, open the filter cartridge housing, take the filter out and hose it down with a garden hose... Before you return the filter, dump out the nasty water sitting in the filer/pump housing... the Return the filter, screw back on the cap, open the pool valves and open the vent screw on top of the filter cartridge housing lid... This allows the pool water to flow back into the filter/pump and removes unwanted air pockets in the hoses... Once the water flows out of the vent screw, screw it back down to stop the water coming out... Now your down backwashing the filer...

Hope this helps,
Dan

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.

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.

I have an 18" round


Get a pool brush and brush your pool daily with it. Make sure your Chlorine level is at least 5 (I would like to see it at 10). Add dry chlorine to yor ool if you have to to get it to this level.

Alternatively, brush the sides and bottom daily with a hand brush. Keep the filter tunning until the algae is gone.

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.

Air in pool


you need to look at all intake pipes and seal ('O' ring) around pump skimmer box.

Use a bucket of water to tip over pipe work (while pumping) see if you can see where leak is.

Go to your pool shop and get some multipurpose pool lubricant used on o-rings and gaskets - put on all seals.

Problems with Intex Krystal Clear Model 635 Pool Filter Pump 1500


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.
