An Intex model 633 is a 2,500 gallons per hour (gph) filter pump. These pumps are for the larger version Intex above-ground pools, and clean the water with a filter cartridge. When choosing a filter pump, gallons per hour is a key in determining what size pump the pool requires. The larger the pool, the larger the amount of water and the longer the pump would need to run to keep it clean. With a larger pump the water circulates more thoroughly, and chemicals are able to perform better.
