We bought an above ground pool and this is our third summer with it. We are already on the 2nd pump and now it has broken and we are frustrated. It just stops pumping. What to do? Is there better pumps out there? If so, what should we purchase?

I bought a summer waves salt water system I was just wondering if it is compatible with all pools?

if the pool is concrete with steel reinforcing in the cement, the salt will corrode the steel which expands and cracks the pool
if the pool is an above ground , the salt will rot the steel supports
It is mainly for fiberglass or plastic pools

Filter stopped working

I would agree...
they are just a Toy! Sorry, I don't mean to be sarcastic, but that is how they are manufactured, not designed to last.
My customers come into my store all the time asking for pump replacements, and if they don't want to upgrade to a Real Pump and Filter, then I send them to:
Warranty Return Policy
To purchase another replacement toy,, like:
  • Intex
  • Wet Set
  • Krystal Klear
  • Cloud
  • Fun n' Sun
  • etc
and you get this...

When the pool s are purchased from walmart, kmart, target, etc
If you can find it in your budget to upgrade, you can still use the same vessel, upgrade to a real filter & pump package set.
like this one:
Hayward S166T92S Pro Series 16 Inch 1 Horsepower Top Mount Sand Filter...
Don't replace with the picture above.

I used the manual vacuum that came with the pool during the summer because I actually got in the pool and vacuumed), but ultimately, now that it is cold, I went to the pool store and bought a much bigger vacuum (that still hooks up to the water hose) and then a longer pole. It's just too darn cold to get in the water during the winter. :-) Hope this helps!

After modifying our 20x 48 Summer Escapes pool to utilize our Intex Saltwater system - why is the saltwater pump showing low flow?

Index salt chlorinators need a certain flow rate. Check the flow rate on your pump to see if it is strong enough.

Bought saltwater system last year ~ loved it!!! This summer the system continues to say, "low flow" and now the water is almost green???? Help!!!

Keep in mind, as soon as the system detects low flow, it turns the electrolytic cells off to prevent from burning them up.. If you have good flow and still get this alarm, check the flow sensor for dirty, stuck, defective or broken. See picture below..

Hi, I have let my intex above ground pool go green over winter and with summer approaching don't know if I need to add extra salt or something else to get the pool ready for swimming. It is a 14 foot,...

You need to get liquid chlorine and add about 2 liters and let your pool filter run for a couple of days and in the mean time clean your filter twice daily. If the pool at this stage is still a little green add more chlorine and broom the bottom to stir it up. After this as once your pool is back to almost normal, clean the the filter again and add clarifya. To keep your pool in good condion over summer buy 2 pool floaters, put 2 chlorine tablets in one and blue block pool sparkle in the other and each week add 1 liter of chlorine. Hope this helps you as i have the same pool and i do this and don't have any problems. You can also add salt to your pool if you like but dissolve it in water before you add it to the pool.

My intex saltwater system does not fit on my summer escapes filter pump. My pool size is 16' x 42" and the pump sits on the ground. On end of the filter is high and the other is low (returm flow).

unfortunately every thing you mentioned is not reaaly important.
Bottom line is that Intex has there own size hoses and prevents easy installation with other manufacturers.
You will need to make a trip to home depot and buy a basket full of fittings and keep trying till one works

Hayward pump hose and intex pool

Im thinking that hot glue would not harden completly in a direct sun situation not to mention the potential mess
What I did was go to my local hardware store and bought rubber o rings ( sorry dont remember what size) put them on the fitting slipped the hose over it and clamped on top of that area. Has been fine all summer

hope you figure it out
