Intex 633 lost suction


I have seen a common problem when customers change / clean their filter is that put the DRY clean filter in the skimmer box or filter holder and sometimes it can cause an "air lock"
Just take your garden hose put in the intake outlet of your pool and turn that baby on....If you start seeing air bubbles on the discharge end of the line most likely that was your trouble.
If the problem still persist then at that time look into pump repair / replacement.
Good Luck!

I have an Intex Ellipse 24x12 pool. I just got an Intex 4000 FIlter Pump and it shoots out the skimmer into the air. I can't get it to work correctly. What should I do?


MAKE SURE YOUR SUCTION HOSE IS GOING TO THE PUMP INLET ON THE FRONT SIDE OF THE MOTOR ON THE PUMP. YOUR DISCHARGE SIDE WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FILTER SIDE OF THE PUMP. IT SOUNDDS AS SIMPLE AS YOU MIGHT HAVE THE HOSES REVERSED.

New Intex FP621 4000 Pool Pump Noisy


I have a 16 x 48 intex pool with the 1inch inlet and outlet. I purchased the intex 4000 pump. The attachments are too big for the inlet and outlet so i then purchased the adapters. The plungers are very noisy and allow air to get into the pump. I removed them and hooked the hoses up to the adapters directly. That worked as long as the adapters were new. This year the seal comes loose and allows air to get into the pump. I even tried allowing the top nut to be loose to allow air to escape. This year nothing works. The pump is just too strong for the holes. I was considering cutting the holes bigger and glueing seals on there but i was concerned about creating weak spots in the pool. I am tired of spending money on it so i did the redneck thing. I can say that because well, you might consider me one. I took the inlet hose off the connector and plugged the hole with one of those little black things. I took the hose and run it up through the hole in between the liner and the poles and down into the pool. If you run it over the top it will not work correctly. Take the hose and tie them together between the two sides as best you can to keep the hose in the pool. If you look at the smaller intex pools that dont have holes, that is how they have the pump hooked to the pool. VOILA! You have an airtight inlet to the pump. You do not need to do that to the outlet because its not sucking water its just pushing it. So, just hook the hose up as you wish. When you need to clean the filter, I put wash clothes in the hoses to plug them and voila. No air gets into the filter. Done! It is actually keeping my pool clean this year. Also, i purchased one of those aqua vacuums and it does work great for this pool. Once you get the big stuff, sweep it with a pool broom and the filter will do its job. You can vacuum these pools with the filter type pumps. Next time, i will purchase a sand filter and be done with it. Happy swimming with less work.

Intex pump 635 is a P.O.S.! How do I hook up a different pump?


I just left the standard intex connection on the pool and I cut the standard connection off of the filter side and I slid the hose over the top of a 1 1/2 pipe and put 2 stainless steel hose clamps over them and it worked fine

Took my working 1500gph pump off and replaced it with the 4000gph pump. i opened the valves after hooking up the new pump and cracked the bleed screw on top of the filter and left it cracked until water...


You'll never believe this, but you need to raise the intake hose up as high as you can. I had the same problem and thought the pump wasn't working. One time it took 5 minutes of it being raised before I could hear the sound change, the water change in the tube starting to swirl and then you could see it come out the output. Very weird, but it worked for me and now I am very careful not to lose the prime.

My vacuum for my 18' intex pool doesn't work right. Goes good for first minute and then suction is very low. Keep getting air in line. How do I solve this?


Make sure you have your tube completly filled with water. hold one end at the discharge while pump is running when full make sure both end of hose stay under water while connecting. I also leave the bleedee cap unscrewed just a bit to let air escape from the system HAVENT HAD A PROBLEM YET
