SOURCE: Looking for an intex filter pump

The best solution to this problem not to find a replacement intex pump/filter. I suggest getting a system with a 50 square foot cartridge filter and a 3/4 hp pump such as hayward or pentair offers. You will be amazed at the difference a little quality can make.

You will need to go to the manufacturing web site and get a new seal for the pump.They cost some where around $1.00 to $2.00.

SOURCE: Where can I get a new motor for an Intex pump model 637 or 12R

first off water should not be getting to the armature area. be carefull with how you are taking care of your pump.
secondly a 1500 gallon pump is very weak I would advise at least 2500 or even the intex 4000
the most important part of pool maintenance is circulation.

if you have time check into electric motor rebuilding in your area
but sometimes that is more expensive than buying new

also if you have a valid receipt and the pump is less than 90 days old call intex and they will send out a new one within 24 hours
good luck

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

You have about 8588 gallons of water in your pool ... One inch of water contains about 159 gallons in your pool. You should consider a 6 hour turn over rate. I recommend a high rate sand filter with at a minimum 1.5 sq feet of filter area. You need to move about 24 gallons a minute to achieve the 6 hour turn over rate.

Continue your research with these figures at hand.

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.

Pump shuts off after a minute and isn't filtering water
