Intex offers a wide range of above-ground pools, including Easy Set with soft sides or metal frame pools for a more sturdy build. You can choose to use your Intex pool with no plumbing or filtration. Over time, however, you may notice the pool's sidewalls and liner become dirty and green. The best way to combat a dirty, green pool is to install the Intex pool filter. The pool filter systems come with a pump attached or built-in depending on which model and also come equipped with all of the necessary parts to ensure set-up is easy and quick.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Place the Intex pool filter a hose-length away from the hose connection on the pool wall.

  2. 2

    Insert the nozzle union into the upper hose connections on the filter unit. Insert the strainer union into the lower hose connections on the filter unit. The hoses will then fit over the strainers that are inserted into the connections. If needed, refer to the owner's manual to identify each part; the parts are labelled.

  3. 3

    Connect one of the hoses to the lower connection located on the pool wall; connect the opposite side of the hose to the upper connection on the filter unit. Fasten the hose with a hose clamp on each end; tighten the hose clamps with a flathead screwdriver.

  4. 4

    Connect the last hose to the upper connection located on the pool wall; connect the opposite side to the lower connection on the filter unit. Fasten the hose on each end with a hose clamp; tighten the hose clamps with the screwdriver.

  5. 5

    Ensure the filter cover is on tight by twisting it in a clockwise motion. Do not use any tools to tighten the cover, tighten by hand only to avoid damage.

  6. 6

    Fill the Intex pool two inches above the upper hose connection, which will allow water to flow through the system. Turn the system on by plugging the unit in to an electrical socket.
