Sand is always the best way to go. This way if the pool frame, liner, or even the ground shift a little it has no ill effects. The sand just conforms to whatever is on top of it and to a degree, whatever is below it as well. Soft soil works okay, but it depends on the part of the country you are in. Definitely not good to try on hard ground or anywhere there are rocks and debris.

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.

There won't be any structural problems and you will notice the difference more than anyone else. If you redo the pool next year it will help to set each leg on a patio brick so it won't settle.

You would think that two tarps would be enough, lol
I would get weed killer and kill the grass or put sand over it. the last suggestion is diggin it up and then putting sand over it to level it back up.
Please rate and let me know if it helps.
