Intex 2,500 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump Reviews
The are several hundred reviews online for the Intex 2,500 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump, many of which are good but within this volume there are also some negative reviews out there. Most of the reviews we found were positive and a lot of people were very impressed with the performance of the pump. People were surprised at how much more suction the vacuum attachment was getting with this pump and many people are reporting dramatic differences after upgrading from a smaller swimming pool pump.
A number of people which had smaller swimming pool pumps described that regardless of how they attempted to clean the pool, their water was turning green because their swimming pool pump simply couldn’t move enough volume of water through the filter quickly enough. However, after upgrading to the Intex 2,500 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump and letting the pump run overnight, they woke up to a brand new swimming pool of crystal clear water.
Another reviewer was unpleasantly surprised about how quickly the filter cartridges clogged up. If the filter cartridges are not kept clean the pump flow will decrease dramatically and this reviewer stated that the cartridges needed constant cleaning, although the manufacturer states they should last 2 weeks. A number of other reviewers were also quite disappointed with the manufacturer, saying that they were not supporting their product within the warranty period.
Although the majority of the reviews were very positive for the Intex 2,500 Gallon Swimming Pool Filter Pump, the fact that there were quite a few people who were not as pleased, requires us to remind anyone considering this pump to proceed with caution as this product should not be used beyond its rated capacity. It is recommended for Intex 24′ Easy Set, Frame Set pools, Ellipse Oval pools, Rectangular Frame pools and similar sized above ground pools from other manufacturers.
