Intex Krystal Clear™ 2800 GPH Sand Filter Pump is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good! I ordered this Intex pump from online store. It arrived in two days. Excellent delivery time! I bought the pump for my 18 foot diameter by 4 feet deep Bestway steel frame pool (bought June 2014). I was worried that the hoses for the new pump wouldn't fit the inlet and outlet valves on the Bestway pool.(The Intex pump doesn't come with any valves or adapters despite the confusing Intex advertising. It just comes with hoses.) Anyway the hoses fit no problem and so I was able to hook up the Bestway skimmer basket to the Bestway valves and then to the Intex pump using either the Intex or Bestway hoses. The skimmer basket attachment that came with the Bestway pool actually worked quite well with the original, puny Bestway cartridge filter pump. It kept the pool surface free of insects and debris when left running 24 hours. The new Intex pump may be too powerful for this skimmer basket attachment. It sucks the floating part of the skimmer well below the surface so not much of a depression in the water surface is made for the debris to fall into. I'm also concerned that the skimmer basket may get drained too fast by the pump if disturbed or temporarily blocked allowing air into the system. I may modify the floating part of the skimmer by drilling some holes in the walls to let the water in faster. I probably will just leave the skimmer attachment off when I'm not around. I'm also not sure how effective the skimmer will be if the new pump only runs for 4 hours a day. Anyway so far, so good!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stay with Canister filter Bought this thinking it would work better then the canister filter we had. Does not clean any better. Kicks out a small amount of sand into pool. Have tried two different types of sand with the same results. Both sands recommended by instructions and two different pool companies. Even emailed the sand manufacturer. Customer service was terrible and was not able to provide any solution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great Had it for a month and it works as expected. However the instructions do not explain all modes like 'waste' mode. I just use backwash and rinse once a week or after vacuuming. I also turn off and close connecting valves, then open valves at filter basket and empty leaves out of it. Timer works fine. It is fairly loud as expected but I only need to run it 4 hours a day. I use it with the Intex Salt water system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I purchased this item about a month ago for our aging pool. My husband was skeptical at first not thinking the pump and filter would be very good quality for the price. But as soon as the weather allowed he hooked it up to our 24 foot pool and is amazed at how well they are working . They are much better than the original and this pump and filter also has a timer so you can set it to run when your power is off peak. The delivery was also even faster than estimated by Walmart when the order was placed. Over all rating excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful! I've been using this for about a month. It works extremely well, circulates the water much more effectively than the cartridge filter. Works perfectly with the Intex salt water generator. Shipping was fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase My husband and I bought this sand filter to replace the pitiful small filter that had come with our 18 round pool. We wanted something stronger that would actually circulate our water.... The sand filter moves the water better then the small ones that come with the pools. I have to admit though, I thought it would circulate the water a lot more then it actually does but that's ok, it is still better then the other one. A trick we did to help circulate more was we removed the outlet cap and put a more narrow cap in its place so that the water would come out more forcefully and it actually does circulate 10 times better. As for the skimmer, at first it wasn't working all that great as the inlet pressure was too hard I think but after keeping an eye on it, it started to work A bit better. It could work better but we aren't going to complain too much about it since it does do the job. Over all we are very happy with the filter.
