Keep your pool water sparkling clean and safe this season with this Intex Saltwater System and Sand Filter Pump. These systems combine the ultimate in non-chemical water care.
Sand filters have long been recognized by pool owners as one of the most desirable methods to keep pool water clear and sparkling. Not only does the all-natural and inexpensive sand do an excellent job of filtering particles out of the water, it needs replacement only once every five years, making sand filtration the simplest maintenance filtration option on the market.
Intex Saltwater Systems are also desired by pool owners for their ability to keep pool water safe and clean, all while eliminating the harsh impacts of traditional packaged chlorine.
Intex has now combined these two proven systems into one product, providing above-ground pool owners with one easy, low-cost and low-maintenance system. Both systems can be controlled by an automatic 24-hour timer to make operation carefree and easy, keep your pool safe, clean and comfortable for swimmers for years to come!
OMG..this is an amazing sand filter pump with saltwater system. The best of both worlds rolled into one. I can't say enough about this system. I've been owning Intex Ultra frame pools for 5 years now, and my pool water has never looked this crystal clear. It's breathtaking!!!! I use to have the filter pump and separate saltwater system, but it was never quite clear the water. One day of putting on the 2650 Sand Filter Pump w/ Saltwater system and my water is sparkling clear. WOW!!! So convenient to have one equipment on side of pool, no more washing/changing filters, and truly a GREAT investment for easy pool maintenance. I'm not one to write online reviews, but I just had to on this product. I was nervous to get the 2650 this year because I believe it was the first year being made by Intex, but I'm so happy I bought it with no reviews to see prior to purchase. If you are tired of cartridge filters and "hit or miss" water clarity, THIS IS THE ANSWER. Worth every penny!!! Recommended to all my pool friends and they ALL got a 2650 Sand Pump as well.
I installed this saltwater system and pump on my 20' Intex Ultraframe and I cannot say enough about this system. I still cannot beleive the fact that all I did was pour in the reqired amout of pool salt, turned on the system for the recommended amount of time daily and I never, ever, never added another thing to this water all season! My water remained crystal clear and sparkling at all times. Truly amazing!! And if you are using a regular chlorinated pool, you have got to get one of these saltwater systems. No more burning eyes, green hair, and faded suits not to mention all the money you spend on chlorine and other chemicals to still not get your water just right. And it's got to be more healthy right? But there is something truly special I can't explain about a saltwater pool....when you run your hand through the water, the water feels SOFT. Soft and so dreamy.....if you can say that about water. You have got to get yourself on of these!!
I have been using a saltwater chlorinator in my pool for the last 2 years. But I was still using the filter pump that came with the pool and a seperate chlorine generator. It did fine but the water circulation left a lot to be desired. Not to mention paper filter replacements got expensive after a while. My new 2650 GPH Sand and Saltwater filter pump was easy to set up and is so easy to use, I almost don't think about it until I get into a nice clean and clear pool.
This pump has everything you need to make chlorine and keep the water sparkling clean.I use it in an Intex Ultraframe 24' pool and I never have any algae or cloudy water.Just make sure you get some good chlorine stabilizer or your levels won't be high enough.
We definitely put this purchase off too long. Not having to change filters is a godsend in itself. We love the cost savings too!
I ordered this item and received it in about 3 days! Very fast shipping, great price, great company. I have an intex 18 foot easy set pool that I bought an intex pump/chlorinator combo to use with the pool two years ago. I upgraded to a 20 foot ultra frame pool last year. I am upgrading to a sand filter pump only because I didn't feel the other pump was big enough to handle to conditions. The local pool company recommended a sand filter pump, but had no pump/chlorinator units. So, I found this unit at VM Innovations, and I'm glad I did. Although I haven't used this unit as of yet, I do know that the sand filter pumps seemed to be more highly recommended and no cartridge filters to change. I can say that the chlorinator is awesome. The last two years I have only had to add some stabilizer and that is it. The water stayed completely clear, tested correctly, felt clean, and I did no other work with no other chemicals. I highly recommend a saltwater chlorinator. It is worth the savings in chemicals and headaches. I have not been disappointed in the Intex products or VM Innovations.
This system is great! As a first time pool owner, I have been very satisfied with the salt water generator and sand filter, which I am using with a 22' x 52" intex ultra pool. My pool is still clear. The pump is quiet and is doing its job very well. <br />The only difficult thing was finding the correct pool filter silica sand, as we live in a rural setting and apparently no one has heard of pool filter sand. None of the silica sand bags in our stores list the particle size that intex says the filter requires. After a couple of trials, we finally found one type that wouldn't fall through the bottom sieve of the filter and that wasn't too big either.
We havelo an intex ultralite pool 20' round with a cartrige filter and salt water pump. We have had it for 3 yrs. This year we were not able to get the balance right on our pool or get it from the cloudy state it was in. We ordered this system and within 3 hrs the pool was crystal clear. All I do is vacuum the pool once every two weeks. I have had to add no chemicals. I take care of the pool, not my husban d so trust me a woman can handle this system with ease. Try it, you won't be sorry.
I bought the intex saltwater/sand system for my new intex 32x16 pool, i believe that this product was easy to set up, the shipping was outstandable, i have never received something so fast in my life, no hassle, and it has my pool looking clear as ever. if you are concidering buying this item i strongly suggest the "add to cart" button. thank you vminnovations.com for a one stop shop for all my pool needs.
This product is amazing! We have an Intex 18' soft sided pool. The 1500 gph pump it came with was a joke. Last year we couldn't even swim in the pool because it was green. I spent hundreds on chemicals, but the pump was so worthless, it didn't matter what I bought to fix it. This pump is so strong! And the sand, cheap and easy! The salt super easy. Spent $29 on sand and $17 on salt. Dumped the salt in the pool, and done! After my first boost, the pool was so crystal clear! I am so so happy with this product.
The directions are not great. I had to watch the video a couple of times. And their operating instructions are not very direct. But I figured it out and couldn't be happier.
I absolutely love this amazing sand filter pump with saltwater system. I have never been so happy to have a really clean, crystal clear looking water in my pool without the use of chemicals. I just vacuum the pool and clean the salt chlorinator cell ant the system does the rest. Worth every penny. I've been trying to get my brother to buy one for his pool. He'll end up getting one too.
This is a GREAT item! I never knew pool maintenance could be so easy!! Yes, it will fit any pool out there with the proper adapters. You will not rergret this purchase. As for VMINNOVATIONS... they are the most courteous, helpful people in the retail market. Eager to help to solve your problem. I had a small problem with this pump and they followed me all the way to make sure Intex made it right, which they did!! Completely satisfied with both companies and I WILL be a return customer.
We purchased this item because the filtration system that comes with the pool is way to undersized, and a pain trying to keep the chlorine levels correct. With the sand filter and the salt water system it has been great. Our water is crystal clear with no chorine effects like red eyes or the chemical feel on the skin. Set up was super easy and with the guidence of our local pool store the transition form chlorine to salt was a breeze. If you are even considering switching, give it no further thought. Just do it and you will love your pool even more than when it was brand new.
i use this on my 4 x 18 foot intex soft side. works great keeps pool clean easy to hook up easy maintanence. nice that everthing is integrated on one timer. Would be nice to have seperate timer for just running pump.
I currently have a 17' x 48" Above ground metal frame pool. I connected most of the system in about 30 minutes, however connecting it to the pool was a problem. These systems will not connect to the SkimmerPlus system. I had to cut the outlet hole in the pool about a 1/4" to get it to fit. Also the SkimmerPlus system made it a challenge to connect the system. Of course this is an Intex system designed for Intex pools. I went to the hardware store and bought a kitchen sink PVC drain pipe and stuck it through the bottom of the skimmer. I then applied a waterproof epoxy putty around the inside and outside of the pipe. I then had to retrofit a rubber gasket to connect that pipe to the filter system. Now that it is connected, it is working great. I just wish it came with a backwash hose. If you follow the instructions during setup, you will need a backwash hose connected, unless you want to make a mudhole by the unit, because the water comes out under high pressure. Overall a good system.
This is the best product I have bought for my pool. I have had an Intex pool for two summers. The small filter that came with itcould not do the job. I was constantly chasing after the PH balance, fighting algae, and keeping the chlorine levels stable. Everytime it rained, or had a few days of very hot weather, I would have to start all over with the chemicals. Is was costing me a Fortune!!! I read 54 reviews before purchasing this saltwater filter and decided that this was what I was looking for. Installing it was very easy, the directions were clear and the video was helpful too. After the initial setup I have done absolutly nothing to my pool! Every time I test the water it is perfect! No PH problems, and not a spec of algea! Anyone who has a pool should switch to this Saltwater filter. It is a GODSEND. I have more time to enjoy my pool as we don't have to wait on the chemicals to "adjust" anymore! My mother-in-law has an in-ground pool and I am going to suggest to her to switch to a saltwater filter too! Buy this product, you won't be sorry.
I had a smaller system that I had bought 3 years ago at Walmart. Seemed to be a little small for my pool. Saw this one on line and bought it. Great price and keeps my 18'X48" pool crystal clear!!! I love the ALL N ONE system, instead of two seperate units. I would highly recommend this unit!!!
I love my salt water system i have saved so much it payed for it self in the first year this going on my 2nd summer evrything still works great .
I HAVE NOTHING BAD TO SAY BUT BUY IT !!!!!
