The Intex 3,000 Sand Filter Pump is an above-ground swimming pool pump that offers lots of advantages over cartridge filters and Diatomaceous Earth (DE) above-ground pumps. Sand filter pumps like the Intex 3,000 are the most efficient and lowest maintenance filter pump options for your above-ground swimming pool.

It filters 3,000 gallons per hour and has a system rating of 2,450 gallons.

The sand filtration media lasts 5 years on average, saving you money since you won't need to buy replacement filter cartridges every summer. Plus, sand filter pumps tend to last 2 to 3 times longer than traditional filter cartridge pumps.

Best money ever spent

This the best purchase ever made for our above ground pool. Our Intex 16x48 pool came with the standard pump that uses the filters , and let me tell you this was a nightmare. Not to tell you the amount of chemicals we had to use daily and still never stayed clean. So we shopped around for a sand filter pump as our last option . This was the ticket . Our pool has had chemicals added when we first installed the pump and NONE since. All the levels are right on after ten days. Also our temps here in Texas have been the hottest this summer EVER. If you are having the same type of issue with your pool , trust me. BUY ONE , it will pay for itself in no time just by what you save in chlorine. Last thing this company had the best price out of ALL web based companies. Don't even try and buy one at a store near you ,we checked and they priced for double. Hope this helps you out.

I Absolutely LOVE IT! Well Worth Every Penny!

I have the Intex 16x48 Ultra and the pump that comes with it was just not doing the job.  Fought w/it all last year and the year before!  This year I wasn't gonna have it.  Ordered.. it shipped fast, Was so easy to set up and had it up and running within minutes!  Hooked up my cleaner and for the 1st time it worked like a charm, actually never seen it work so good!  Water is the best it has ever looked - so crispy, clean and simply looks beautiful and stays that way.  No more fighting every week to keep it up to proper levels.... I have told all of my friends and family about this and now ... they are all looking forward to getting theirs before the Hot Texas Summer Heat really hits us!  I love the product .....  absolutely Love it!

Definitely!

We set up our 18' Intex Pool that had been in storage through the Winter.  We discovered that the pump system that came with the pool needed some replacement parts which we were finding it difficult to locate what we needed.  We considered a sand filter pump instead because of how much iron is in our well water.  In years past, the cartridge filter would need to be replaced 2-3 times per day for at least two weeks to get the iron filtered out of the water.  We thought the sand filter would save time and money - we were RIGHT!  We started looking for the pump at our local Wal-Mart only to find they has a smaller version (only 1,600 GPH) for $229.00.  We wanted the 2,600 GPH model.  No one locally carried this pump.  I found VM Innovations through an online search and was impressed with the price of $199.00 with free shipping.  I was hesitant to order since I had never heard of VM Innovation before but I took the leap and ordered it.  I expected that we would not see the pump for at least a week - it showed up TWO DAYS after we ordered.  I was impressed to say the least!!!  The best part - our pool was CRYSTAL CLEAR within two days!!!  I have now recommended this pump AND VM Innovations to many others!  THANK YOU, VM INNOVATIONS!  I will say there was one small disappointment, the pump did not come with the sand for the system, however, we were able to find the sand at our local Menards for a reasonable price!  I am a very happy customer!!!

Perfect for my 15'x42"

I purchased this last summer for my 15'x48" easy set.  The efficiency of this filter is amazing!  The filters that come with the easy set pools get the job done, but do not come close to a real sand filter.  I was running the small, cartridge-guzzling filter around the clock and still couldn't keep my pool clean.  And forget hooking a vacuum to one of those low-powered pumps.  With my sand filter I only need to run it 2 hrs a day, and I can hook a vacuum to it and suck all the debris off the bottom of my pool in no time!  I'm glad I made this purchase.  I will get many years out of it and also be able use it when I decide to upgrade to a larger pool.  Stop wasting your $ on cartridges and electricity running your filter around the clock and buy this!

Great Product

This filter pump has cut down on the amount of pool chemicals that I needed to use to keep my pool water clean and clear.  This pump is hands down better than the pump that came with the pool. The extra flow that it provides circulates the pool water better and makes cleaning the bottom of the pool with the vaccuum a beeze.  i highly recommend this product to anyone that is looking to upgrade to a sand filter.

Awesome filter pump

This has been just what we needed for our 18ft above ground pool. Keeping the pool crystal clear has been easy. Have backwashed it once and it was an easy thing to do. Just need a place for the water to go. The pressure is awesome. I don't know why we waited so long using the pump that came with the pool. I vacuum the pool in a fraction of the time now. I'd highly recommend this pump.

Great product, shipping was super fast!

This pool pump works great and was very easy to set up.  The power is excellent especially when compared to the standard pump that was included with the pool. The free shipping said 10 days but we had it on our doorstep in just 2 days!!!

Awesome service and the price was the lowest available anywhere on the internet or in my local stores.  I will definitely shop here again.

love it

I am a 42 year old woman with three girls who love to swim.  I was tired of worrying about what to do if the pool turns green since the filter pump that come with the pool is not ideal.  I set this pump up myself, put the 100#'s of sand in and it works great.  I am very happy with this purchase.

Great purchase

This was our second go-around with an above ground pool.  We used the pump that came with the pool for our first pool.  When we set up the second one, we knew we were going to upgrade the pump.  We set up the pool and ran the pump that came with it non-stop.  We could never get the chemical levels at the appropriate level.  We purchased the Krystal Clear 3000.  I was amazed when it shipped the same day I ordered it then arrived 3 days later.  The set up was easy and fit the Coleman 16 x 48 pool fittings.  Within one day, the chemical levels were perfect.  Completely satisfied with this purchase and have recommended to a co-worker who has same size pool.

Missing part, terrible customer service, never again

The pump arrived with a  missing part. Since I am not a pool pump professional, I didn't realize a part was missing until AFTER installation and after my pool was full of sand. Appaprently, when my pump and filter was assembled in the factory, lunch break occured and my filter only got 10 laterals instead of the 11 needed. (I've learned so much about pool pumps the last 2 weeks, I know consider myself a pool pump professional!) Customer service was of no help, telling me to contact the manufacturer. Contacted Intex, had to wait three days to talk to someone as it was a holiday weekend, filled out a ton of paperwork, they then denied my claim because a date was missing. It's been two weeks and I still don't have a part or a working pump. I do however, have the largest 10,000 gallon mosquite breeding ground in the county, as my pool has been left stagnant. Hopefully Intex will soon approve my 2nd claim with the date on.

AWESOME PUMP GREAT SERVICE

I've busted my hump for the past 5 years trying to keep my 16' x 42" intex pool clean.  At the end of last year's swim season someone suggested that I try a sand filter/pump.  When this year came around, I surfed the web and found the 2650 GPH filter/pump from VMinnovators and I've got to say this is one of the best purchases I've ever made.  By the time my new pump arrived my pool was a dark green color and I could hardly see the bottom.  I had the pump instsalled in about 3 hours (watching the video was a huge help) and 6 hours later the pool was crystal clear.  VM was very professional and customer friendly.  Finally my pool claeaning pains are over...

Super Pump!

This is our 3rd year for the Intex 18 ' x 48 " soft side.  The pump that came with it is not strong.  We purchased the Intex Sand Filter Pump and began to use it this season.  It is super!!!!!  The past 2 years I had to use the vaccuum that came with the pool just about everyday.  I was constantly checking the basket that fits over the rim, as it would tend to rise up out of the water.  With this new sand filter pump, nothing hangs over the rim, I don't need to vaccuum, and the water is crystal clear.  We are using far less chemicals than the past 2 summers.   We operate the pump for 2 hours a time about 3 times a day.  Use 1 chlorine tablet in the floater with the opening set at the minimum amount of flow, shock the water once a week or after a lot of rain.  This pump has allowed me more time to enjoy the pool.

powerful pump

Got the pump hooked up a few hours ago and all I can say is WOW.  Over the standard pump that came with the pool this is a superstar!  Pool is a bit low and it actually shoots the filtered water 2/3 way across the pool!  Will finally be able to vacuum the pool using the pump and not a  garden hose tool!  Yay!

Also...Shipped only 3 hours after I ordered online on a Sunday and arrived before 8am on Wednesday using reg. shipping!!!  Very impressed by the order and shipping communications from the company too.  Would certainly order from them again.

2650 GPH Sand Filter & Pump

The actual unit that came is different from the one pictured.  They must have changed the design of the filter to where it has a smaller opening at the bottom which makes it a little more difficult to use and to service.  Overall I haven't noticed that much of a difference in the quality or clarity of the water even with using ZeoBrite compared to using the old Intex Cartridge Filter and pump that came with the pool.  One improvement is that I am able to clean the pool better because this is a much stronger pump and I don't have to clean this filter as often as with the previous filter...but some have made the claim that it is so strong that it stirs up the water to where they don't have to vacuum the pool as often...I still have to vacuum my pool at least once a week and still get silt at the bottom of the pool as I did with the other filter.  Previously I was able to control that better by using a sock over the water outlet back to the pool but this pump is too strong to be able to keep a sock on it.

Amazing Pump & Filter

I have never had such a clean pool. No more filters for me! This sand filter is amazing. My filter went out and I had to order one online, as no where in town had the right size replacement. The pool turned green while I was waiting for the new filter to arrive. I thought I was going to have to drain the pool and refill it.....NOPE. I set up the pump, put in the sand, and set it going. Overnight I had a crystal clear pool.

Great pump, Even greater price.

Bought a cheap 16x48 pool at walmart, summer waves elite that came with a skimmer pump that was/is junk.  I new prior to purchasing pool would need a better pump.  Found this pump listed for $150.  I was originally looking at higher capacity paper filter pumps from intex, but have to replace the filters or clean them was too much hassle.  And the price could not be beat anywhere.  Ordered and came quickly.  Did not come with shut off valves, ordered those from amazon separately.  I run about 2 hours every other day and no issues.  Works great for vacuuming also.
