          This was easy to set up and much better filtering system than the one that came with the pool originally. The timer is very helpful and the backwash system for cleaning out the sand filter is so much easier than the paper filters. One thing I didn't anticipate was the need to purchase sand to put in the filter, but it was cheap and easily found at my local pool store.

              This sand filter/pump is like night and day compared to the piece of garbage paper filter and pump that came with the 18 x 48 pool. I can use my vacuum attachment now and it works like it should. Love the timer. When I filled my pool this year, the old pump shot craps and the pool/water sat for over a week getting very dirt. When I hooked this pump and filter up, I had a clean pool within 2 days.

                Big results for a small product! I wish I could have used the Intex skimmer and pool inlet devices, as it were I have the standard pool skimmer and inlet devices already mounted. The Intex hoses do mount on to the standard connections. I replaced the power cord with my old one because of the twist lock connector required by the building inspector, very simple procedure. You'll have to use adaptors and reducers on the Drain port of the 6 way valve in order to hook up a backwash hose or buy an Intex hose and adaptor for a backwash hose. I ran it for about 8 hours and my 15 ft. pool was ready to go ! Love the Timer feature on it !

                    Our 18'x 48" intex pool was not staying clear with the pump that came with the pool. The pool had a milky, cloudy look from day 3. I was washing out the paper filter everyday. AFter reading all of the great reviews on the sand filter we decided to get one after 1 month of running the old pump 24/7. Our pool was so much clearer in just 1 day. Now less than one week after getting the sand filter/pump, our pool is crystal clear. I love the backwash feature. One tip of advice with this pool is to make sure that the screen from the surface skimmer to the pump is not clogged w/ hair, or bugs etc. that will decrees the efficiency of any pump and also make it work harder.

                          We just received this product last week and we love it! We have a 15 ft. intex pool and it hooked up so easily with the adapters supplied. I was using the old filter and pump and could not seem to get my pool clean this year, everything I vacuumed seemed to get recirculated back in the pool making it impossible to clean. Within less then a week our pool is sparkling clean and with much less effort. The ability to backwash makes all the difference and no more filters! We liked it so much we purchased one for my mother in law.

                            I did not buy the pump from FOXABOVEGROUND. The neighbor has one and it works great. So I bought one. The connector hose was to short, only 12 " instead of about 20". I contacted INTEX. Well that was 3 weeks ago and after getting the run around,Faxing papers to them twice, 5 calls, they finally send me a new hose. After I opened the package, it was the wrong hose again. Not 12" or the correct 20" but about 35 " ..Customer service stinks. I looked online to purchase one, but they are out of stock(all this time).Instead of informing the customer about the trouble, they give you the run around. I took this wrong hose now and got it to working with the help of my plumber. Now the pump runs great. Just beware if there are parts missing or not the right one, nobody can help you because they have a patent on their products. You have to go through INTEX. Pump is super if you have the right parts. But will have a headache if you need help from INTEX.

                              You still have to use some chemicals but not as much or as often.
