You bought an Intex Pool last year and your water flow is way down, water is not clear and the Intex salt chlorine generator won't work because the water flow is below the working threshold. You tried everything including replacing a less than year old pump and filter system. Maybe it's time to look at replacing the Intex pump and filter with a better quality but affordable pump and filter set. For Intex pools less than 15,000 gallons, we are recommending Game Sand Pro 50 Filter System. It is more durable that the Intex filter-pump system and very reasonably priced.
Buy Game Sand Pro 50 Filter System •For pools up to 15,000 US gallons •Ultra quiet and easy to use •Self priming pump •INTEX® 2 ¼ " hose adapters included •Conventional 32mm, 1 ¼ " and 1 ½ " hose fittings included •7 position multi-port valve •Accurate and easy-to-read pressure gauge •Hair and lint strainer basket •Integrated base plate •Requires 38 lbs of #20 silica sand (not included) •Compatible with alternative sand products •Operates on 110v/60Hz •1 year limited warranty
Place the base plate and pump on the level hard surface next to your pool.
In preparation for assembling the filter tank, inspect the tank O-ring and ensure that it has no cracks or flat spots.
To attach the pool return hose to the filter discharge port, first lightly lubricate the small O-ring and place it inside the long Index adapter. Then screw the adapter onto the pool return port on the filter. Note: If you find that this fitting leaks, you have to wind 4-5 layers of plumber's tape around the threads of the filter return port.
Note that his pool system includes an Intex Salt Chlorine Generator between the filter-pump and the pool. The connection from the filter is the same. You will just be connecting to the Intex hose from the SCG instead of the pool. The connection fittings are the same.
Rotate the valve to position "4", Backwash. Plug in power to pump
Check for leaks
Turn off power to the pump.
The new sand should be cleaned of dust and very small sand particles that will get past the bottom strainer. For instruction on cleaning the sand, see our guide and How To Operate the Game Sand Pro 50 Filter System.
