Amazon has the "Intex Krystal Clear Sand Filter Pump for Above Ground Pools, 2150 GPH System Flow Rate"on sale for $69:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GSPHS1U

2150 GPH is the flow rate, but practically every other site markets the pump rate, which is 2800 GPH. The model number is easiest for searching: 28647EG.

The lowest price I found on this is $131 from the 3rd party sellers on Amazon.

For reference, I bought this for my 18' x 48" above-ground Intex pool. It's supposed to do a much, much better filtering job than the cheap cartridge filter that came with the pool.

Here's the product page on the manufacturer's website: http://www.intexcorp.com/28647eg.html

I bought one of these 2 years ago and it's awesome. I don't remember if is the exact same model. There is almost no maintenance once it's setup.

Wow I just realized this isn't the salt water system. If you can try to find that when it goes on sale. I Paid 100 for the whole sand and saltwater system from amazon 2 years ago in January.

There's not much of a negative for having an oversized filter. You just don't have to run it as long.

If you have the cartridge filter, then yes, this is (supposedly) a million times better. I have the stock 1500gph cartridge-filter pump with my 18x48 AGP, and I just bought this because it's supposed to be a big upgrade.

You'll probably need adapters. I don't think the pump comes with them, and most AGP have 1 1/4" fittings, whereas this pump has 1 1/2" fittings. I'm going to wait until mine arrives before buying the adapters.

Yes, you'll need to buy sand. I'm not sure what kind to buy yet. Here's what the manual says to use (35 Kg silica sand or 25kg glass sand):
Quote :
No. 20 silica sand or glass sand. Particle size range 0.45 to 0.85mm (0.018 to 0.033 inches). Uniformity Coefficient less than 1.75.

I looked into sand options some more, and it appears that the HTH pool filter sand is what you want: https://www.amazon.com/Arch-Chemi...B000BO585W

They carry it at Ace Hardware, True Value, and Do It Best for around $10 if you have one of those nearby. The Quikrete pool filter sand is junk, so don't buy that (Source [troublefreepool.com])

My dad got one of these, the Krystal Klear saltwater generator, and one of those little bugs that crawl around the bottom and vacuum. He now only has to spend a few minutes each week on upkeep, and according to him, it is worth every penny.

Sand filter pump plus salt water chlorinator is the only reason I still have a pool in the backyard. It's basically maintenance free when you have a skimmer and automatic vacuum. No need to measure chlorine levels as often with the chlorinator and no chemicals need to be added for crystal-clear water.

I wish it was the one with saltwater system. Ordered one anyway. Mine gave up after 6 years of faithful service last summer. I really like these - low cost, very reliable. $68 is unbeatable...

You can add a saltwater system to these. Those cost another $100 though: https://www.amazon.com/Intex-Krys...B0064OONXQ. I plan to add a SWG at some point. I try to put just a bit of money in the pool every year to make it better, and the sand filter is this year's upgrade.
