The Intex Sand Filter Pump offers many advantages over cartridge filter and Diatomaceous Earth (DE) above ground pool pumps. A sand filter pump is the most efficient and lowest maintenance filter pump option for your above ground swimming pool. The sand filtration media lasts 5 years on average and this saves you money since you will not need to buy replacement filter cartridges every summer. Plus, sand filter pumps tend to last 2-3 times longer than traditional filter cartridge pumps for above ground pools. Includes GFCI unit (US version) which has a saftey shut-off and meets UL standard! This low maintenance sand filter is very easy to operate and maintain. Simply set the daily timer for automatic hassle-free management. The timer has daily cycle settings of 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12 hours. The size of your pool will determine the sand filter pump's daily cleaning period. Refer to the sand filter pump's operating manual for your pool's daily cleaning cycle requirements. The Intex above ground pool sand filter pump includes a skimmer basket attached to the filter pump that automatically collects most of your pool's floating surface debris. This will prolong the life of the pump's sand media and the sand filter Pump itself. The included automatic skimmer works in conjunction with the sand filter pump and you can attach a pool vacuum to pick up heavier debris on the pool's bottom. This sand filter pump has the added safety feature of a built-in GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) that will immediately shut the unit off if needed to protect people from injury due to electric shock.
